So far, I haven't been able to play BFBC2 yet. Sometimes, it crashes(and throws me back to the desktop) at the very first loading screen before the main menu. If it doesn't crash there, it will crash(and throw me back to the desktop) on the multiplayer loading screen, or it will freeze at the single player screen that says "In the year blahblah, sea of japan, etc."

What's wrong/how might i fix it?

Is this the Steam version? Can you run any other 3D games? – DrFish Mar 8 '11 at 9:16
Yup, it's steam, and I can definately play 3d games, most recently, fallen earth and minecraft :D – zaery Mar 8 '11 at 18:45
Hmmmmm, I was having a problem with crysis not being able to move or look around, and a friend suggested that I reinstall it. I'll try reinstalling bfbc2, and go eat lunch, and then see how that works. – zaery Mar 8 '11 at 20:04

Try running DirectX web setup to check for and install missing components.
