I looked around and cant get a good answer so i am going to post here. I would very much appreciate any help any of you can give. I bought bf2 yesterday (deluxe edition) i installed it and tried to play. When i do, it shows the bf2 logo screen i guess, then goes black like its going to go 800 by 600 mode, then it goes right back to my desktop screen and thats it. I also have to have a disc in there for it to run, but it says install disc so automatically i think its disc5, the last one needed for install, but it only works with disc one on there. I downloaded and installed patch 1.4, with that here is my easy info. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. If anything else is needed please ask and i will find it.

I've had this problem before too. In fact, I'm having it with BF2142 right now. A quick uninstall and reinstall of the game always fixed it. But since you just installed it, there is chance it's video card, as marvinmatthew said.
This issue is typically caused by a conflict with the video card or video card drivers. Make sure your video card meets the requirements for the game, and that your drivers are the newest version available from the manufacturer. The supported video cards are as listed below: ATI Radeon
- X700 (PCIe), X600 (PCIe), X800 XT Platinum Edition, X800 PRO, X300 series.
- 9800 series, 9700 series, 9600 series, 9559 (RV350LX), 9500 series, 8500 series.
If you are not using one of these video card chipsets, the game may run improperly or may not run at all. The game was tested to communicate properly with the aforementioned chipsets using the newest drivers. If you have one of these cards but are still experiencing the issue, it is likely that the drivers you have are not the newest manufacturer version. Click here for information on checking your video card and updating your drivers. Note that if you have a ATI Radeon 9200 PCI card (this does not apply to AGP or PCI Express cards), you may experience this issue even after updating your drivers. Although this card meets the memory requirements for running the game, when tested it was not able to run the game with a stability adequate enough to make the official supported video card list in the Readme for the game. Updating your video card drivers as well as your motherboard firmware may help to resolve this issue. Please refer to your video card manufacturer for further instruction. Also you will want to make sure that you have the latest patch installed. You can find the "full" version of the patch from the address below:
- 6600 (PCIe), PCX 5900 (PCIe).
- 5800 series (AGP).
- 6800 Ultra, 6800 GT, 6800.
- FX 5950 series, FX 5900 series, FX 5700 series.

But he's trying to run BF2, not BF:V
Wow marv, you've been postjumped two times on the same post!
wait, make that three
i tihnk it is from the "quoteing of the spsific comment"
Well im just gona add all this, since i diddnt put it in the other post. I have serached at least 100 forums on this issue. The video card that i have does support (at least thats what a lot of ppl say, that use the same card as i do and they play the game fine)this game, as well as fear combat, guild wars, and counter strike. I play a lot of games that require a decent video card. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled three times. I really do appreciate all the help so far and thank all of you who have taken the time to reply.

Then they are wrong....wrong, wrong, wrong. There are many different versions of intel integrated video, and they are all, without exception, garbage.
Here is a quote form the Intel website (and why didn't you look there?)
When Battlefield 2* game is launched, the splash screen is displayed and then the game exits to the desktop.
Intel is not aware of a fix or workaround for this issue. Contact the game manufacturer † for further updates, patches or support.
And here is the game compatilbilty page from Intel for that chipset, note the big RED mark next to BF2.
This should answer all your questions, and I am afraid the answer is - NO.
