    i could play fine with out any problem on single player mode, but just can't do it on multiplayer.
    i could play other games without any problems

    Like I said,it was a silly question.Sounds like cpu or ram having a prob.Try changing ram into different slots.Run a benchmarking app in a loop for an hour or 2,3dmark05 will give a good test,run memtest to check your ram is good.

    Blue screens AAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!


    It can't be the crack that's done it because i have the same problem although it won't even get to the menu without crashing to a blue screen. The demo does excatly the same so it can't be the protection. I have a ATI x700 pro 256mb PCI card too. I'm soo irritated by this problem after spending good money on the card 4 Battlefield 2. Another thing is that all my other games work. Except once when i tried F.E.A.R it did the same.

    Please some1 send me some sort of solution to this relentless problem.

    Thanks to every for sharing information.

    I'd say heat,Pop the side of and point a desk fan at the side and see if it helps!

    Well if it gives you a blue screen right away....heat could not be an issue.

    1. What patch is any do you have installed?
    2. And what does the blue screen say? Give evrything Including the numbers

    Wooopee, Fixed it!

    What a relief. It was one of two things. Installed latest soundcard driver and i noticed some1 posted something about external drives so i unplugged all my external stuff and USB and it worked.

    However the sound is totally screwed and the sample rate is messed up. Everything is in half speed, slow mo kind of pitch which is very annoying. Hope I'v helped some1 out as many ppl have had this problem.

    Any tips on the sound problem would be most appreciated.

    Battelfield 2 ...

    The Deadly “BLUE SCREEN”After weeks of going back and forth with EA Techs I’m ready to Say … Battelfield2 should have not been released until all of the BUGS are worked out of the GAME!
    EA relies on us the consumer to be the Ginny-pigs with there products. We pay good money for a game that most of us can not use! I have tried everything!!! After about 5 to 10 minutes of playing on-line. I get the deadly :confused: Blue Screen… Is there any HOPE FOR THIS GAME ? Or just another nice bank roll for the people at EA to be proud of!
    HELP HELP HELP!!!! If you can. because EA is not! :hotouch:

    Seems most of the time it's the hardware and/or drivers. If you've updated all your drivers, uplugged any unneeded devices, verified it couldn't be an overheat issue, run the game with proper quality settings, don't have ISP issues, have ruled out any networking devices such as router, have all the latest patches for BF2 and do not have any "cracks" applied to the game; then maybe BF2 is buggy!

    I would suggest uninstalling BOTH the game AND the Demo. Why have the Demo and game? Remove all traces of both. Reinstall the game, plus get the very latest patch. Then try it. And watch your temps.

    Don't give up!

    If the game you downloaded was the real BF2 demo, you should be able to play on the few demo multiplayer servers out there. But nothing else.

    Avoid eating fast food for a week or two and you'll have enough $$ to buy the game.

    I Fixed My Blue Screen of Death Crash from BF2

    Kept crashing to blue screen like many others out of BF2, really frustrating. I decided to give my case a good cleaning, went out bought some pressurized air and sprayed the inside of my machine. Turns out the CPU fan was totally junked up with dust etc. It was just a cooling issue! Now my CPU is running way cooler (50 degrees) and the game hasn't crashed at all whereas before it did every 10 minutes and drove me nutts. HOpe this helps.
