I've never had a problem playing BF2 and have been playing since last summer, after my recent format I just reinstalled bf2 and now I can't seem to play. I have the latest nvidia drivers, directx and so on. Tried reinstalling the game but to no avail. All I got when I startup (and a slow one at that) is a grey screen at the login screen for those who might know the game. The music is still running and all and you can ever still watch the intro video prior to the login screen. Also, ctrl + alt + del works fine and u can simply close the game with alt f4 which wasn't like that before. Anybody have ideas?
