Did you get the hotfix? That may be your problem... My brother's PC has been doing that too, but the hotfix didn't help. Can't hurt to try though!

No need for that. I have just noticed recently a peculiar behaviour from BF2 which I am sure can't be intentional. If the refresh rate of your monitor is lower than the refresh rate specified ingame (the default setting or whatever it has been changed to) you will get exactly that behaviour. I have only tested this with an LCD so maybe it is peculair to LCD displays, but try changing the refresh rate of your display to something lower (say 60Hz) and see if that works. if it does then set the ingame video settings to your resolution and preferred refresh rate, exit the game and re-adjust your monitor display settings.
Im sorry to say ive just tried that idea and no luck some people are saying it may be my graphics card is not near powerful enough to play the game what do you guys think ???? thanks for the help
