Specs: win 7, core 2 duo. 2.16. 2gb ram
hello all.
i have just got the monitor and graphics card replaced on this dell xps m1710 laptop and now battlefield 2 and battlefield 2142 won't load up. when i try to play the game it starts to load up and the screen goes black and then goes back to desktop. i never had this problem before i got this stuff replaced. the new monitor seems the same as the old one 1920x1200 and the graphics card is the same geforce 7950GTX but i notice now the refresh rate is stuck on 59 hertz and cannot be changed to 60 hertz which bf2 need to be on 60 hertz. tried uninstalling both games and reinstalling but still the same. why would a company make a game that only runs on 60 hertz. all other games run fine except for these two. has anyone got a fix to get these bf2 games to work ?. i have tried forcing the refresh rate to 60 in nvidia control panel and it has not worked. i have tried other drivers and still no go. i have tried reforce.exe still won't fix this problem thanks for any help on this.. oh and both bf2 games run fine on windows 7 on my friends laptop which is an xpsm1710 also. strange problem.

well i tried all known fixes out there and still not working. the monitor i had before on this laptop only went to 60 hertz which is the right setting but this new monitor dell put in just shows 59 hertz i cannot change it to 60 no matter what i try. i think dell must have given me the wrong monitor so i'm asking them to send out a technician to replace it with a 60 hertz one. why would they be making monitors with only 59 hertz only doesn't make any sense. i'll see what happens with dell. thanks for the reply

1. Hz does not matter on a laptop(or LCD for that matter). You are not going to be able to see it.

2. That is not your issue.

3. upgrade your nvidia drivers from their website. then try again.
