Default Experiencing Lag - Hardware Related

Hey guys,

While in game I experience lag, usually right after spawning in for the first time after loading. Also, on some maps like Muttrah, I often (but no always) lag when flying a heli over a lot of objects.

I've noticed a general slowdown in my computer's operation, probably from an aging hard drive (its about 1.5 years old and has used 317GB of 442GB (72%).

Would a new HD help run PR smoother? I know it would start up PR quicker, but would in-game play be smoother?

Laptop Specs:
Intel i5 m 430
ATI Radeon HD 5xxx series
6GB RAM

Try the following:

1. Defragment the HDD Microsoft offers tools for this, and will already be installed on the PC.
2. Delete the BF2 cache (Located in My docs/battlefield2/mods/bf2/cache)
(deleting that folder solved my epic lagg problems, was getting 15fps.. Then deleted that, and was getting 100, so I have no idea what was stored in there :P)

Yes, it will re-generate them on the next map load. Deleting everything in the cache folder gets rid of all the crap that gets accumulated over months of patches, graphics settings changes and general game-play.

Its mentioned in the BF2 tweak guide if you want to be even more sure.
