Okay, both BF2142 and BF2 are crashing to desktop after a black screen when i load it. I have recently upgraded my card from a x300 128mg to a x1650 512mg (both PCI-Express). They worked fine before the switch.

The transition went smoothly. All my other games (Doom3, Half Life, C&C Generals, Guild Wars) are working fine. But both these games refuse to work.

I have checked for forced refresh rates. I have uninstalled the security update (as in readme) updated display drivers (catalyst 7.2) updated Dx9 (not needed but i checked) re-installed and installed Both BF games twice (with restarts) deleted the BF2142 folder in My Documents edited the Video.con file

I've tried everything. Can anyone help?

System Specs: AMD Athlon64 3200+ (1.99Ghz) 2 Gb DDR2 RAM ATI Radeon X1650 Pro (HIS) 512Mg Windows XP SP2

When you updated the video driver did you first uninstall the old video driver? If not that might be the colpret.

also quit background apps such as Folding@Home as this happened to me with BF2142 when i had it running (pause didn't work)
