-King-Well, If you want to play BF2 really bad.. I still had really laggy problems and crashing before I even got into the game. It developed a new problems which I haven't managed to get rid off, until I formatted my hard disk the other day, Good chance that doing that will sort it out.
Yes there is a chance it will sort it out, but if it is external to his ocmuter (his ISP), then all he's doing is formatting and reinstalling to have the exact same problem. persoanlly I like to know what the probelm is before trying to fix it, can save a lot of time and trouble.
