Hi. Yesterday I installed BF2 onto my laptop which is an HP G7000. Basically every time I try loading it, the startup screen shows, then the screen is black for a moment (as if the game is about to load) and then it just returns to desktop. I have tried starting it up after removing every programme running, including Windows Defender, to no avail. I know BF2 isn't compatible with some laptops so this could be it, but if it is supposed to work on an HP G7000, then what is the issue and how could I solve it?
Two possible reasons: Reason 1: The laptop videocard is not supported, nothing you can do about that.
Reason 2: Refreshrate, check here. TweakGuides.com - Battlefield 2 Tweak Guide > Launching/Loading Issues
