I had a problem with my cd/dvd drive a few weeks back. And I recently got it to work again. But while I couldnt use the cd drive I wanted to play BF2 really bad, so I got a 'no-cd hack' thing (yes I am ashamed) But I was only going to play single player anyway. But that didint work either. Now that my cd drive works again I want to play BF2 again, But it wont start up (it just turns into black screen, flickers a bit and then goes back to desktop) and I cant Uninstall it or Install it the whole game either. Any help please?

~Yes I have played BF2 on this Computer before (it is still installed, but the bf2.exe and coredll.dll have been replaced....

~Other games install with no problems, only BF2 :(

I have a Radeon 9550 graphics card. I dont know if its is fully updated, as I dont exactly know how the hell to update it using the site. Add me to MSN if you can help or post here. [email][/email]

You need to do a manual uninstall following the instructions on EA's website.

You can manually uninstall the game by removing the files and registry keys associated with it. Be sure to follow these steps exactly as they appear to prevent accidental file/program deletion on your system.

note: To manually uninstall the Battlefield 2: Euro Force and/or Battlefield 2: Armored Fury booster packs you must do a complete uninstall of Battlefield 2 from your system.

To delete the save files:

1. Open My Documents. 2. Right-click on the Battlefield 2 folder and choose Delete.

To delete the game files (in the default location):

1. Open My Computer. 2. Open the C drive. 3. Open the Program Files folder. 4. Open the EA GAMES folder. 5. Right-click on the Battlefield 2 folder and choose Delete. 6. Close all open windows. 7. Right-click on the Recycle Bin and choose Empty Recycle Bin.

To edit the registry and remove Battlefield 2:

1. Click on the Start button. 2. Click on Run. 3. Type regedit in the text field. 4. Click File and then choose Export. 5. Name the file Backup and make sure the Export Range is set to All. 6. Click Save; you will now be returned to the Registry Editor window. 7. Click the plus sign next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. 8. Click the plus sign next to Software. 9. Click the plus sign next to DICE. 10. Right-click on the Battlefield 2 folder and choose Delete. 11. Right-click on the Battlefield 2: Amored Fury folder (if applicable) and choose Delete. 12. Click the plus sign next to Electronic Arts. 13. Right-click and choose Delete on any Battlefield 2 folders. 14. Click the plus sign next to Microsoft. 15. Click the plus sign next to Windows. 16. Click the plus sign next to CurrentVersion. 17. Click the plus sign next to Uninstall. 18. Right-click on the key named {04858915-9F49-4B2A-AED4-DC49A7DE6A7B} andchoose Delete. 19. A Confirm Key Delete window will appear, choose Yes. 20. Close the WindowsRegistry Editor. 21. Go to the following folder: C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information (If you cannot find this folder you may have to go to Tools > Folder Settings and click the setting to “SHOW hidden folders.”) 22. Find the folders with the exact same values as the registry keys above and delete them. 23. Empty the recycle bin once more.

Battlefield 2 is now completely removed from your system.

Good luck and don't use things like the no-cd patch again
