So I have played battlefield 2 for a long while until i switched to an AMD. Which surprises me, because the AMD Processer is supported... So bf2 loads up fine, all the movies are fine good good.... then when the menu comes its completely black, i see nothing except my cursor. I can move my cursor around, and I can hear music... but everything is black i see nothing, and can do nothing, excpet move my mouse around and listen... to menu music lol.... what do i do aahh!! :D PLeeease!! 100 points til I am sargeant, ugh.. =)

Specs: Windows XP Pro AMD Athlon XP 2600+, ~2.1GHz 768MB RAM DX 9.0c ATi Radeon 9250 AGP, (Tul Corporation) SB Audigy 2 ZS soundcard, w/ 5.1 speaker setup Dual monitor... hmm 80gig WD HD... and..

I can assure you it has nothing to do with your processor. Try downloadind the latest drivers for your video card and then reboot your computer. This will probably upset alot of people but, next time get a Nvidia video card. There have been far more game compatibilty issue with Radeon's.

Hope that works for you. :agreed:

Movies load up fine and everything, now, I cant move my cursor or anything its frozen.... but.. I can see the login window, the quit button, and the version number... the background video is completely gray though.... HMMM!!!

If someone knows whats going on, help would be greatly appreciated :bows:

That is odd. Maybe someone else has a better idea. If not, I would suggest re-installing battlefield 2. Just remember to re-install the patches too.

Don't really know what else to say, it sounds like bf2 is corrupted somehow.

God Luck :wtf:

There might have been a conflict with your MB and Vid Card that didn't present itself until you tried to access a graphic intensive application. I don't know much about all that, but you might want to test the MB with a different card if you have one. If you don't have one, go get a cheap video card for the test. CompUSA sells a whole host of crappy 16MB cards for $20.

This has nothing to do with your CPU or motherboard. Your vid card IS NOT SUPPORTED. On some (older) motherboards that allow forcing the AGP to 4X (or only support 4X AGP), the 9250's will work, but there is simply no way to be sure it will work in a new motherboard.

This is a well known issue with the 9250's, it has been present since the game was released, there is no fix except for setting the AGP to 4X, you could try this with your new CPU and Mobo.

BTW many ppl run BF2 with AMD CPU's. I have 2 AMD CPU's, socket 754 Athlon 64 3200, socket 939 Athlon 64 X2 3800, and have also used socket 939 Athlon 64 3000 with BF2 using various vid cards such as FX5600, PCI E 6600, PCI E X300 and all ran fine. If you use a later vid card you shouldn't have any problems with your AMD CPU.
