My system specs:
ATI Radeon x600
512mb ram
2.8 ghz p4

basically, my computer can easily handle BFII. After 2 uninstalls, and getting the same problem, I can't figure out why it won't work.

The problem happens when the game is initializing. After I click on start game (while still in windows), the screen flashes as if the game is starting. But, the screen is black with what seems to be a grey to white gradient that gradually takes over the screen, and it is completely white within a minute. Interestingly enough, I can hear the music in the background and as I move the mouse, I can hear the noises it makes as the mouse passes over what I assume to be menu options.

The video and soundcard are not sharing resources, and there is no conflicts on my machine. I can run other games fine...any opinions/suggestions?

Thanks

Do you have a dual core processor?
Have you tried running the game in safe mode?
Make sure all your dirvers are updated.
Did you install the patch?
