Your reselutions and colors went off.

Why the hell did you hard boot your computer, your card was only 70 degrees, that isnt bad at all.

I rebooted for another reason... But it was in the yellow bars and considering it took a few seconds to check it probably reached the red ones.

It won't let me change my colour and resolutions now

People are still having all types of problems directly related to BF2. It's such a shame that they still haven't got it right yet...

BF2 is very high resolution game, and even the best video cards are working well either.

BF2 is very demanding and looks like utter crap for the rescources it uses.

I say we blame this issue on BF2

Yeah BF2 totally corrupted my video card drivers as well. I had to reinstall everything (the game and drivers) to get it to work again.
