Try plugging a microphone into the mic port. I know this sounds stupid, but i have had games not want to load because i did not have a mic plugged in.

Try the microphone randomly working when it wants to with BF2. That's my only problem with my BF2 installation under Win 7 Pro x64. X-Fi titanium sound card too.

I think you are right. On my two Win 7 64-bit machines with exact parts:

1. PC to Dell S2409W = works like a charm

2. PC to Onkyo Receiver to Projector = Game will not launch

Oh well, I tried every trick on the net last night and it won't load. I get the renxxxx.dll driver failure every time. What's funny is that CSS, the game that refuses to die, plays perfect on my projector. Too funny.

Ok, I grabbed the S2409W and plugged it in the machine connected to my projector. Both games booted like the other machine did. I went into both games and changed the resolution to match my projector. I then unplugged the monitor and replugged in my projector. The good: BF2142 works, yea!!!. The bad: BF2 still will not boot. Both games have the same tweaks noted above, but for some reason BF2 does not like the refresh rate of my projector.

What's funny is I can unplug the projector and plug in the S2409W and BF2 boots instantly. Unplug it and replug in the projector and the game won't boot.

However, when typing this what I should try is to boot the game with the S2409W and while the game is running, switch the plug over to the projector. Hmm.

I did the switch when the game was running and it worked. However, once I left the game I could not relaunch it even after the shaders and such were set for the projector.

What's odd is that BF2142 loads fine. I wonder if BF2 has some refresh rate tweak that BF2142 does not. Ugh.
