After installing the Complete BF2 Collection, I restarted after the installation and it doesn't play. I play from the CD, Still noning. I play with w/o the CD, Still won't work. I'm upset because it was got it this week at Best Buy, Brand New. I don't understand why this is happening. Noning works! Not even BF2: Special Forces! Any help will be nice
The system specs and what error gets displayed/better discription what happens would help us to help you. ;)
XP Pro with SP2 and SP3 ATI Card (forgot name)
The splash screen with "Battlefield 2" pops up and faints and thats it.

your going to need to be more specific
Sounds like A: not meeting the minimum requirements (please post your whole system specs in detail) or B: a refresh rate issue.
Did you update your drivers > Graphiccard, soundcard, DirectX...?
Launching/Loading Issues: The most common problem with BF2 is that the game crashes to desktop or goes to a black screen when you first launch it. The reason for this is either incompatible hardware (make sure you meet all the minimum specs), or more usually the fact that you're not running at the default Windows XP refresh rate (60Hz). By default the game tries to launch at 800x600@60Hz initially, so your system must be able to run that same resolution and refresh rate, otherwise the game will abort. If you are using any refresh rate override program/method, disable it (e.g. if you're using Refresh Force, click the 'Restore Original Settings' button and apply). Alternatively, see the Advanced Tweaking section of the guide for details on how to set a different startup resolution, in case your graphics card/monitor simply cannot do 800x600@60Hz resolution. Once you've got the game running, you can then change the resolution to suit your taste in the in-game settings, and importantly you can select a higher refresh rate. Then you can reapply any refresh rate override and the game will launch without any problems. To set a non-standard resolution see the Advanced Tweaking section.
Never mind now. It works fine now.

Maybe you could get more in detail again on what you did to make it work, so others with the same problem might find a helpfull answer in this thread. At the moment there is none at all.
From my own experience when i searched for help: I've found a lot of threads on specific problems that ended like 'Nevermind, i fixed it.' which always lead to frustration/disappointment because there was no real answer given to fix that issue for me/others too.
There was no problem. I installed it incorrectly.
