Last night, I installed Battlefield: Bad Company 2 on the PC. Everything installed fine but when I start the game I am experiencing some strange problem with the control.

The player is strafing correctly with the WASD keys, but moving the aim/camera which is normally done by the mouse movement, is behaving strangely. When I move the mouse in x-axis, it only turns right and for the y-axis the camera only moves upwards.

I have changed the controls and restarted my laptop.

I have i3, 6 GB RAM, Win Home Premium x64, GTX 540M. What would be the problem causing it?

Can you correct and clarify the following: "as for the y-axis it moves turns upside whether I move the mouse down or up." –  horatio Sep 25 '12 at 19:46
does it only occur in BF:BC2? –  Novarg Sep 26 '12 at 11:23
@Novarg: Yeah it only occurs in BF:BC2 I am playing Counter Strike : Source and COD: MW very well But Bad Company is making problem for me –  Hammad Asif Sep 27 '12 at 9:29
@horatio: Clarifying this line means whether I move the mouse upwards or downwards it only move upwards. Hope it will clarify –  Hammad Asif Sep 27 '12 at 9:30
Yes, that does clear up the question –  horatio Sep 27 '12 at 14:02

Well, had the same problem when I installed a cracked version of the game to test out the singleplayer. The problem is definitely the crack. You should google for a fix, I remember I found one back then and this should be a common issue.

My bought version though worked fine. Can't remember any issues with it aside from the horrible FOV.

So, update GPU drivers, update the game, update the game mods and most importantly, avoid cracks in general.
