I'm desperate for help, to the point i'm willing to paypal someone cash if they find a working solution. I'm running ATI Radeon x1600 AMD 3200+ OC'd to 2200mhz 1 gig ram All of my hardware is running up to date drivers. I've called EA tech support, although my card isn't officially supported, they have hundreds of reports of it running fine. Onto what i've tried. Uninstall/reinstall Manual uninstall (including regedit) Patching Reinstalling then patching. Forcing my monitor to 60hz. removing and reinstalling directx Removing and reinstalling all video/sound drivers. shouting,crying and attempted suicide. There is no error message whatsoever, it just goes black for about 5 seconds then back to desktop, Running it in windowed mode does the same, still no error message.
