Blackscreen error at startup of BattleField 2 Demo

Okay, I have Windows XP SP1 Radeon 9250 256 RAM 1.4 ghz. LYAO if u will but I cannot upgrade any of these things (can only accept PCI cards, crashes with SP2, can only accept 128 MB ram cards, buying a new processor wont work either Rolling Eyes )

So I downloaded and installed the Battlefield 2 demo. I have DirectX9.0c. When I run BF2 demo it goes to a black screen, and a program called "Error" appears.

What can I do to fix this? I want to play battlefield 2 Sad
Actually you should visit their official site and check their FAQ page, I'm pretty sure it's said their. Otherwise you should ask it in their forum.
Since it doesn't look like a computer problem but more like something wrong with the game.

I believe you should check the requirement for the game and you might aswell try to update your ATI-drivers. Might help, no idea.

//Ok I checked the requirement for the game and it's the following:
* Microsoft Windows XP (32-bit version) with Administrator rights
* 1.7 GHz or faster processor
* 512 MB or more RAM
* Supported 128 MB video card with the newest manufacturer drivers
* CD Version: 8x or faster CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive
* DVD version: 8x or faster DVD-ROM drive
* 2.3 GB free hard disk space plus space for the Windows swap file and save data

And in your post you say you got 1.4ghz?

Supported Graphic adapters:
* X700 (PCIe), X600 (PCIe), X800 XT Platinum Edition, X800 PRO, X300 series
* 9800 series, 9700 series, 9600 series, 9559 (RV350LX), 9500 series, 8500 series

Doesn't look like the game can handle your 9200series aswell..

And this I get from the support-section from the EA:

Question: Why does the game crash to the desktop after a full black screen?

Answer: This issue is typically caused by a conflict with the video card or video card drivers. Make sure your video card meets the requirements for the game, and that your drivers are the newest version available from the manufacturer.

So the way to solve the problem is, BUY A NEW COMPUTER or atleast update it! Smile

yeah I guess Ill have to build a new pc cuz my motherboard wont accept any RAM over 128mbs or anything other than PCI videocard slots, and my motherboard runs at an amazing 100mhz... Rolling Eyes
128mb ram is too low... Sorry! But Battlefield 2 is a great game with a LOT of bugs. If you build a new pc better build it for bf2142 instead of bf2.
