What display device are you using. If it's an LCD it may be the game detecting the refresh rate as being out of range and exiting.

Go to your "C:\Documents and Settings\Steve\My Documents\Battlefield 2\Profiles", you will see a number of sub folders, in each sub-folder is a file called video.con, open then with notepad.

You will see a line something like this in each file, the numbers may be different;

VideoSettings.setResolution 1024X768@85Hz

Change it to this in each file;

VideoSettings.setResolution 800x600@60Hz

Save and and test BF2 once they have all been altered.
