When you DL the original demo, you also need to get that patch. go to http://www.eagames.com/official/battlefield/1942/us/gamedemo.jsp and when it finishes loading, use the red scroll tab at the right side of the screen to scroll down the really small centre window. Scroll right down until you get to "Battlefield 1942 Multiplayer Demo Patch v1.1 Download Links", and dl the 1.1 patch.

However, seeing that that demo is really old, and there might be only one server (Qussco Japanese employee server, but anyone can join, it kicks you if you have the word 'player' in your name, lag free, autokick software for tkers), I suggest you get the BF2 demo, or if not, then the BF1942 Secret weapons of WWII demo, which has about 10 or so servers on (again, the Qussco server is best, either conquest [#2] or CTF [#3]).

hey there I know you have a 9250 orsomething and bf2 wont work well for you, the newest drivers are supposed to fix your problem...uninstall your drivers and control panel, and install the new ones from www.ati.com

The demo doesn't let you access the retail version's servers. Updated drivers may help, but not too much.

When he says he can't run BF2 demo, I'm assuming that his system isn't up to the task of running BF2, let alone the video card/driver.
