Try launching the game from the autorun (y'know, when you put the disc in and it comes up with a menu) rather than a desktop shortcut. Alternatively, if you've got two disc drives try it in the other one.

Right here we go, i cleaned the disk with some disk cleaner and now it works, so iv installed all the patches and FH2 i went into a online game in FH2 and i keep getting kicked by PB for "0/S privlages" or somthing and when it doesnt do that the game crashes with a "Memory Error" aslo lol i retrieved my account Staffy23 which that last time i was on that account on BF2 was 2006 anyway i have another account StaffyUK which this one i have a much higher rank and more unlocked weapons but i can only log in with Staffy23 they both are on the same email adresses.

That's a common problem with BF2/BF2142 on Vista. Right click the Battlefield 2 icon and click on Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and select the 'Run this program as an administrator' (I believe it's the last option) and click OK.

You'll have to authorise it every time you launch the game (it'll pop up a message giving you the choice of allowing the program to run or closing it, you've probably seen them before on Vista), but it should solve that problem. Make sure you use that shortcut to launch the game though, otherwise it won't run the program as an administrator and you'll end up getting kicked out of games again.
