Question question about re-installing BC2, again and again...

they ask me about how i want to reinstall.. how should i answer.. i don't understand the terminology.

and i can only re-install a certain number of times.. at this rate i will use them all up pretty quickly.

i cant get in again... i just reinstalled.

what is up with this ..??

I not sure what you're talking about here.
I'm unaware of any install limit for BF2.
Here's the install order though..

BF2
BF2 Special Forces (if you have it)
BF2 v1.41 patch
BF2 v1.50 patch

OK ..thanks
had an Infinite Loop critical failure blue screen crash due to AVG's bug on 64bit -7, really messed things up. then my ATI Radeon card had an infinite loop blue screen crash..

. then my ATI Radeon card had an infinite loop crash.. i tried to set it up, no luck, so i downloaded an older driver.. i ended up putting in an nVidia card i bought for my brother that he never paid me for

the process said there were a limited number of reinstalls and i had 10 left.. that there were 2 ways to install.. it chose one and asked if i wanted to continue.. i did not understand what it was referring to.. so i clicked yes.. I'm getting tired of messing with it.
i had to reinstall a lot of programs.. including BC2, now it quit working again

yesterday my wifes ATI Radeon graphics card had an infinite loop blue screen crash after a complete OS reinstall at the shop.. so i put the other nVidia SLI in hers.. apparently she downloaded some virus getting a smiley collection program or something.. and we had AVG

not much luck with computers lately..

BC2 is a portable install, no re-install required. You can backup your BC2 game directory and "BFBC2" directory in your documents (settings, etc) and just copy them back to a new OS, etc.

If I were you I'd invest in an Xbox 360 or PS3.

can you play Xbox with one hand..? that's all I've got,...

it looks like a complex combination of problems with bad AVG program bug with a Blue Screen Crash.. which crashed the BC2 program , which crashed my Video card drivers.. which crashed the computer and the new install of the game.. and also compatibility problems Exp8 and Win7/64.. which crashed the computer again.. they now have a Beta 9 for that. but keep notifying me about Exp 8... I'm checking on resolving this, but it takes time.. and the Learning Curve is pretty steep.

now i have a "code 10" problem with

Teredo Tunneling pseudo-interface
ISAP adapter
ISAP adapter #2

i re-installed BC2 but have the same problem.. the cursor works but about 2 1/2 inches to the right of what i want to click.. and what i can manage to click up is corrupted.

thanks for your input..
