Thanks for your valid input bullsack. Lol.
I'm gutted Now as the single player campaign is too short. And I can't play online. I can ad people as friends and see when there online and what server there in etc. But when I go to join I get that error. And if I go to load new servers it just keeps saying loading data. Was doing that for over 10mins last night lol

I get booted out of every server because I have NVIDIA's wonderful Optimus technology that Punkbuster kicks for thinking it's two displays.

Its because you still have the integrated card installed Aaza, you need to uninstall the drivers for it and reinstall the ones for your main card

You fools don't have the technologies. It's somewhat new for laptops to produce better graphics cards and improve on battery life by automatically switching between the two.

BC2 was working fine on the original drivers plus the first updated ones I got (for the 325M) but it was after installing the latest ones that has made everyone who has Optimus Technology get the boot for dual display. I could revert back to the old drivers and play but I couldn't really be bothered - Punkbuster should simply fix it.

Except there is no dual display. The integrated card is switched off and the 325M turned on when the game is launched.

It is weird that the old drivers worked fine but the new drivers had issues.

Roll back to the old drivers then.

Have you disabled the dual display settings thingy in Display Settings/control Panel/ nVidia settings where it is on Win7

Steam have a few good bargains at the moment but that is probably the best for todays ones.

The price in Bandwidth to download the whole game to me is almost worth paying the extra to get a hard copy disk. Which I like having on hand anywho. I must say I like the idea of shooting Bull with a repair gun :larf: .
