If you are OC'ing you may have to turn it down a little. The game is extremely sensitive to any system instability. Also, some of the people on my team have had issues with running Xfire in the background while BF2 is playing.
Could be due to some background processes....I know that sqlservr.exe causes a lot of crashing in just about everything for me....

I strongly agree. I can pass prime 95 but not BF2 at higher clocks.
didn't oc, i usually have teamspeak, xfire and maybe even some music. The music isn't often. I've tried ocing before, but the computer locked up so i just returned them the clocks to normal. Hasn't always done this with xfire.........its on and off.......
Try reinstalling BF2 if the shutting down of the background tasks didn't work. Also make sure you go into Documents and delete the BF2 folder.
Heh, I installed the new ATI/AMD Catalyst Drivers 7.1... yea, 3DMark06 didn't complete completely without freezing. So, I had to go back to Catalyst 6.12 (came out like 12/22/06) Everything seems to work now.
Do this only if patching BF2 didn't help.... Heh, I've been to busy with BF2142 8)
