realy strange for starters, when i try to set a key for a controll it will say that the key is in use, but i have looked and im 100% posotive its not in use.. secondly for some reason when i set a key it will deleate another key asighment. eg: move forward i will set it to rightmouse than when i try to set my backwards to z it will deleate the forward button, visa versa and it dosent matter what keys i use... it could be $ and D but it will still deleate them... its a bit off topic but its my last problem with battlefield 2 it just randomly crashes to desktop, mostly under something laggy like alot of explosions or smoke. thats my rant hope that the next patch will stabilize the game but i got no idea for the controll thingy... is there like a second page for the common controlls?

1) Some controls are pre-assigned and fixed and can only be changed by editing the control key assignment file (like left ALT is fixed and can't be changed, it always gives key used)
2) Yes it does for me to, solution is to set the desired key as secondary key. if I set Forward to Mouse 0, it deletes the S for reverse, but not if I assign forward to mouse 0 as the secondary key, I suspect this is pre-designed behaviour for the WASD setup type key use.
3) Need more info on your system to answer that one.

Make sure you have all the latest drivers instaled for all the hardware on your system. Believe it or not I have heard of game crashing issues being due to a badly fragmeneted hard drive. When's the last time you defragged?
ermm never.... its a brand new hard drive... about 2 weeks old :uhm:
its also got a fresh install of windows xp
Well you might try a defrag. I play the game all day long without a crash. And when I say all day long, I mean ALL DAY LONG! So I don't think it's the game software that has a problem. My settings are pretty high too. 1024x768 resolution and everything is set on High except Lighting and Dynamic Shawdows are on Medium. AA is set to 4x. It stresses my system pretty good, but the game runs smooth after the map has been loaded for about 20 seconds or so. And I have NO CRASHES whatsoever. I am thinking that perhaps you don't know how hard drive fragmentation occurs. Just because it's a new hard drive does not mean that the data on it is not fragmented. Did you install Windows XP yourself on this new hard drive? After installing WinXP, and then installing all the updates for it, then installing all your drivers, then installing various software, then installing updates/patches for the software, then browsing the web, ect, the Hard Drive will be very fragmented. Try defragging the thing! Personally, I have my hard drive partitioned into three different sections. I install my games on one of the partitions that is separate from my OS and various utiltiy software so that the game partition does not get fragmented nearly as quickly as it otherwise would. That still doesn't mean that it doesn't need an occasional defrag. But it only needs it if I install or uninstall a game or patch one of the games I have on that partition. Before defragging your OS I recommend clearing out your Internet Browser Cache, Temporary Internet Files if you wish to call it that. The cache usually contains a lot of files and the defrag will go a little faster if you delete those files first. Otherwise all those temporary files have to be moved around during the defrag process.

i jus reinstalled battlefield 2 and it works okay now :-) no 2 hours of defraging ... as for the controlls i have managed to fix them aswell.. for starters as i was saying before about, how if i set my forward key.. it would deleate my backwards key .. visa versa well thats easily fixed .. just have the foward key set as a primary and than have the key that you want to be backwards as a secondary key.. and it works fine. now i only have 2 problems left with the game :-) 1)there are still some keys that are "apparantly" in use 2)my computer uses this resolution 1280x1024 (probably not right.. im at school) and the games highets res is 1280x968 (again. . probably not right) so i always have a 2 little bars on the top & bottem of the screen. so for the controlls & resolution i was thinking, where are all of my configs saved to,(on my computer, or on the account servers?) edit: also i have a Asus "P4C800-E Deluxe" for my motherboard.. same as tinsoldiers
Well I'm glad to hear you got it working good now! I really didn't know if a defrag would solve your problem, but I thought it might be worth a shot. Good to know a reinstall worked for you. Perhaps a little strange that there was something wrong with the first installation but certanily not the first time I've heard of a reinstall doing the trick!

[color=navy]I remember someone saying the control issue can be "fixed" by editing the control.con file. I did an edit on that file on the demo to get certain keys to work. I like to use the End key which was assigned to something else. The control.con file was stored in the profile directory and could be edited with notepad.[/color]
FAIR WARNING! If the file is modified, it is possible to remove keys that may be necessary for other things to happen. Make a backup before doing anything. You can probably also just Google the problem for forums with very detailed instructions.
