Default BF2 problems (video relateD?)

I have a GF4 Ti 4600 (128-mb w/ latest drivers) and I just installed BF2. Whenever I open the exe my screen goes black, then goes back to my desktop and it never shows that BF2 has actually opened, why is this, any ideas?

Did you install the demo? If not that's probably your problem: the release date is the 22nd I think. I would check on EA's site to see if they have any issues with you video card, although such a swift crash could really mean anything. To be safe, I'd reinstall it, and if possible run a verification (a sum) on the file you used to install. Many download sites give these. If you need one form EA, I can sum mine, but know that if they don't match, nothing will be proved (as I don't know if MY copy is good). I might actually try downgrading the drivers if reinstalling doesn't work. You never know...

I dont think the Ti will work, due to the dx version. 5200 will barely work, and honestly the ti ver are better than it but its because of the dx and shader support.
