I have the same thing as Dark sniper after applying the 1.1 patch. 1.0 worked just fine. I tried reinstalling everything I could think of several times; DirectX, GeForce 3 Detonator Drivers, The Demo, the patch etc. etc.

I spent around 4 hours on it all, about half way I had this:

This is with the 1.1 patch. So atleast I got the game to load (and not crash after the loading bar almost reached 100%). But I had no textures and no sound. Only advantage of that was that the loading took less than a minute :D

Also some strange thing I noticed is that since I reinstalled the demo + patch, when connecting to a server, it fills the yellow "connecting to" bar around 5 times before it brings up the japanese planes + battleships loading screen, it didn´t do that before. Then I uninstalled everyting and reinstalled just the demo and not the patch and it still has that 5x connection bar filling or whatever you´d call it.

Anyway I'm sick and tired of it, I wasted 4 hours on it and I'll stick with 1.0, there's still about 10 servers for it :D and I'll just have to wait a week and a day for the full retail version

I found the answer to my problem. It WAS my drivers for my video card. I went nVidia and downloaded the latest and it worked like a charm.:D

Here is something from the EA boards.

I fixed the "kick to desktop" problem!!! by Ev1LJ1m, posted Sep 06, 2002 12:30pm

I have been reading the boards, and it appears many people have been having the same problems as I have. That when you start the game, you get a flash of a black screen then it quits.

Many of you have had this problem have a GeForce 2MX card, like me. THIS CARD DOES SUPPORT T&L!!!

Here is how I fixed my problem:

1. First check you have the latest drivers for your card and the latest version of DirectX.

2. On Windows, press the 'Start' button, and then click 'Run...'

3. In the box, type 'dxdiag', which will bring up your DirectX diagnostic program.

4. In the new window, click the 'Display' tab.

5. My problem here was that for some reason, Direct3D Acceleration was disabled. If it is, click 'Enable'.

6. Click the 'Exit' button, and see if BF1942 now loads!

This fixed my problem, and now BF1942 runs just as it did before! I hope this fixes a few other peoples problems too!

Haven't tried it since I am not experiencing the problem, and don't wish to either!
