I am having a problem with Battlefield 2. I have a brand new Alienware
system. Someone who also has an alienware system but a totally different
config is having the same problem.

An error keeps popping up everytime the game hardlocks in event viewer, I
was hoping for some help.

Event ID: 4609

The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal
processing. HRESULT was 8007041F from line 44 of
d:\qxp_slp\com\com1x\src\events\tier1\eventsystemobj.cpp. Please contact
Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error.

Specs:
Ath FX-55
6800 GT SLI

Hi OG,

Those errors are difficult to pinpoint, but not impossible
to troubleshoot. Try these suggestions to begin with
however since it's a new machine, try steps 4+5 first! :-)

Let's try some basic troubleshooting. If the problem still persists
please post back and we'll try some more steps. Good luck! :-)

1. To see if it's a software conflict: Temporarily disable Startup
programs one at a time, starting with Firewall, Antivirus, and ad
blockers using this utility: http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml
or this method: http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_content.php

You can lookup what a program does before you disable it here:
http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php

2. Run a virus scan at: http://housecall.antivirus.com and then
install MS AntiSpyware from: www.microsoft.com/spyware to
remove any Spyware or Adware which could clog up your PC.

3. Click My Computer / Rightclick the Drive & Choose Properties
/ Run the "Disk Cleanup..." / Next Click the "Tools" Tab and run
the "Error-Checking" and "Defragmentation" utilities.

4. Go to the Windows Update site for everything under Critical and
Recommended: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com Some games
require a patch: http://www.avault.com/pcrl/patches_list.asp?letter=a

5. Update DirectX and your Chipset, Sound, &Video Drivers:

itís not your machine as-is. it is possibly cd/cd-rom, or screwy
files. try installing different software to see if itís not the rom,
then if itís not, try defrag or scndsk to see if your computer just
needs some basic maint.

boot with your xp cd. press enter to install xp then press F8 to
accept the license aggreement. then choose to repair an existing
installation and let it run its course. this doesnt format your hard
drive. it simply replaces all the windows system files.

i also have an error message when i try to install disc 1 of
battlefield 2, the installation runs until it gets to a file with the
extension "Menu_client.zip" and then i get an error message saying
that i need to restart the installation. ive used a different dvd/cd
drive but the problem still persists. this is the second ea game that
ive bought that had problems installing, and im getting a little bit
frustrated. does anyone know something that could help?
