    The problem is certainly your software configuration. Is the default resolution suitable for your monitor?

    Also, is this an illegal copy?

    It works for me- although for a while I had a problem where I would launch it and then get a black screen and the game would never load. The way to solve that was to go to the BF folder and trash the graphics settings folder. You can delete the intro movie files and see if that helps...

    i think

    I dont have 2142,, but bf2 does not support widescreen. That may be your problem. You may have to edit the shortcut on your desktop. Thats what I had to do for bf2. BTW, you should never have bought this game. EA/DICE support for the community is crap. BF2 is the last BF game that I wil ever buy. My clan is itching for something better to come along so we can ditch EA and their ranked servers. Hope ya get it running.
