check the amount the PC uses for himself, maybe he uses already too much.

do you have all the drivers up-to-date?

check the log file and maybe post it here, might help more.

Hello cobra3817.

Welcome to Battleground Europe.

Its very helpful to know your system spec. and driver versions to find a possible mistake. Can you post it complete please.

Try to change the game's display resolution to same as your display resolution.

Different resolution settings for the game and your display is often the reason for the black screen.

Actually I am not too familliar with ATI cards but I don't think your video card supports shader model 3.0 which the game requires (probably why it doesn't load), you also do not have 2 GB of RAM available.

If you want to download new drivers any way you can do so here, select X300 in the drop down menus.

May eyes ain't workin good today but unless I miss read your specs.

You have a p4.....That is hurting you. CPU speed is important but speed can be decieving. A p4 running a 3.4 can't come close to a core duo running at 3.0 or a i7 running a 2.66. I have a older E2160 duelcore intel that's OCed to 2.3 that was a vast improvement over my previous p4 3.0 OCed to 3.4.

You have 1 gig of ram...That is litterly murdering you :(

Windows takes pretty much 1/2 to 3/4th of a gig depending on version and how much extra you have running. You need at least 2 gigs and then you gota set the game for low memory.

The game takes well over a gig of memory to preload.

I am not up on ati cards so not sure if yours has the shaders required but being it only has 128 megs memory I'm betting it does'nt.

I'm not tryin to bash your machine, just pointing out what I'm seeing from the specs you posted.

That is a really old system. Your CPU speed is fine at 3.0 ghz, but you really need to have at least 2gb of Ram and a newer graphics card, I'd recommend no less than a 4670.

Chances are your memory is DDR, not DDR2 or DDR3. If that is the case I wouldn't even bother doing anything with that pc unless you know someone with a 1gb stick that matches and they'll give it you.

Honestly, I would seriously look at getting a newer PC. I know that might not be what you want to hear, but your specs say it all.
