So I bought a new laptop: Gateway FX, dual 2.26ghz, 4gig ram, 1gig video (all ddr3) and 320gb 7200 hard drive. I tried installing BF2 on my laptop because, in my opinion, it is the most awesome shooter game! I've been playing for about 4 yrs now. Anyway, when I try to install the game on the laptop I can't get to the next step after inserting install disc3. Also, I tried to download the 1.41 patch and it got all the way to the end and then said, "cannot find install folder" and quit on me. I know BF2 was made for XP32, but I've heard that some people have gotten it to work on Vista64. Any suggestions out there? I'm not a techie, so you'll have to speak english to me. If you have any suggestions, please send them my way! Thanks!
I also Have a Gateway FX laptop with the same specs., as lil-schittl, and I too am unable to get passed the third cd on installation of bf2. It seems to freeze up and does not complete the installation, which also leaves no desktop icons. I also get a message that patch 1.41 was not installed because it was unable to find bf2 folder. I am able to start the game but without patch 1.41 installed, so that would just leave me with single player games. I also tried to reinstall, but the problem kept reoccuring. My desktop is also a 64 bit vista and it installed completely with minor problems, due to compatiblity that were later resolved. Please if anyone has a solution please post. Thank you.

BF2 is a worthless peice of *** game. I had issues with it at launch . I bought it for 20 bucks about 2 years ago after i threw my original game in the trash about a year prior. I installed the game fine and played it for 3 days on Vista 64 then all of a sudden the game wouldnt launch. I even reinsalled it and made sure there wasnt a patch or something that i missed. Its coded like *** and is just a marketing scheme. All BF2 and BF2142 is , is what ran down the crack of its 2 previous titles asses.
Welp, I must be doomed. My game will not load on my new laptop. I've tried several times and it can never find the install folder. It's a bummer because I like playing it.
Anybody know of any other games that are similar to BF2?
Wow MGDJoker, you sound like a real winner. Your comment answered all of my issues, thanks! I can't believe I've spent the last 5 years playing a piece of **** game. What was I thinking? I feel like an idiot...
Jerk! Go post your crack issues somewhere else. No one needs your comments on here.
I added the directory like most of you suggested and that actually allowed me to download patch 1.41 and 1.5. But now when I try to join a server, the map will connect to 100% and then stop. The music will start skipping like a bad cd and the game will not proceed any further. I have to ctrl+alt+delete to get out of it. Any tips on that?
