I did follow the steps from the OP and think I might have done them correctly but I can't be positive. Thanks for pointing out how I couldn't figure out what GPU I'm using even though my monitor is plugged into the video card. (What a dummy I am. ) Also, I disabled my second monitor but that didn't help.

Here's my support data:

BulletMagnet,

DO you indeed have a X-Fi audio card?
Primary Playback: Speakers (Creative SB X-Fi)

That requires a separate solution to get it to run... let's perform a test first.

Try to make a simple check, maybe you have a problem like mine.
Our objective, get you to Launch PR without PRMumble

To do so:
rename the folder with PRMumble (...\Battlefield 2\mods\pr\bin\PRmumble to ...\Battlefield 2\mods\pr\bin\PRmumbleBackup ).

Then start PR as normal.

The drives for X-Fi cards are causing problems,
As I don't own one of these cards, I can not be of that much assistance,
I suggest you ask in this thread:
http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f27-...auncher-4.html
or this thread:
http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f27-...creen-fix.html
there are plenty of X-Fi owners playing PR, and there are a few different workarounds, but it requires testing to see which workout will fix your particular issue.

LITOralis:

Thanks for the suggestion regarding X-Fi audio issues. I'll check them out. I did get things to start and now I can display in full native resolution 1920x1080 on my main monitor. Giving PRBF2 permission through my AVG firewall helped.

But now, the window PR runs in is high res but it's a little off center so I can't access some of the controls at the bottom. The audio seems OK, but I haven't tried any voice communications. [sigh] One step at a time.

[R-COM]LITOralis.nMd--

Thanks for the suggestions. If I have sounds problems, I'll know where to start. My major problem now is that while PR runs in 1920 x 1080, it's a little off center but I can move the window by right-clicking on the upper left hand corner of the window.

I've only visited empty servers to try out the controls. However, when I'm using a scoped assault rifle and right-click to look through the scope, the screen goes black. Right-clicking again, brings back the un-scoped view. But, if instead of using the "STD" configuration of the rifle I use the "ALT" config, it seems to work OK. Maybe it's supposed to be that way.

Also, I disabled Mumble as suggested but nothing seemed different. So far I haven't had the BSOD problem but I haven't really been playing with others online yet.

Thanks for the suggestions; any others?

OK, first let's try to delete your shader cache, that should fix the scoped weapon creates blackscreen problem

Open PRLauncher->Support tab-Utilities tab on top->Clear Shader Cache click the Blue Perform Task button.

second, to center your screen I believe you can try to do it within PRlauncher:

Open PRLauncher->Options->Video-.Custom Position
enter 0 in vertical, enter 0 in horizontal
click Apply
Now, go to here and follow directions to use Shift Window:
Borderless fullscreen windowed - PCGamingWiki PCGW - bugs, fixes, crashes, mods, guides and improvements for every PC game

AND/OR use this one:

But might I ask why you do not run in fullscreen?

Thanks for your continued help. The custom video position of 0,0 did help although clearing the shader cache did not.

I'd like to run PR in fullscreen mode and I have the run property set to Maximized in the PR shortcut to the Launcher. So I don't know what the problem is. I think you understand these issues much more than I do so any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks again for your continued support.

BulletMagnet, the Shift Window program in this link is your best option:

Thanks for your suggestions. Now I am able to position the window in the proper location 0,0 and 1920 x 1080 but it is still in a window, not full screen.

Also, I have the problem of when looking through a scope, everything is black but returns to normal with changing to iron sites.

Any additional suggestions? Thanks.

We can troubleshoot this, or we can just fix it,

start PR, the profile importer will start, do NOT import your profile from BF2, instead choose to retrieve it from Gamespy.
