Sounds to be that you need to make sure renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 1 is set to '1' under C:\Where you Origin folder is\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings

Then open VideoDefault with a notepad & amend the above line
Intel i5 2500K @ 4Ghz, Asus P8P67 Evo, 16GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz, 120GB OCZ Vertex 3, Sapphire ATI Radeon R9 280X Toxic OC, 650W BeQuiet Gold, Thermaltake Armor, Win 7 64Bit HP, XL2411T 24" 144Hz Gaming Monitor

It's already set to 1 on mine and it still doesnt seem to launch.

EDIT: I got the game to work in windowed mode via adjusting the defaultresolution 0 in the above file.

So I think it's a resolution issue, I'm guessing all those having problems are running of 16:9 high resolution monitors. Trying dropping down to a 4:3 resolution or just launch in windowed mode, set a resolution on bf1942 then match it with your own and launch full screen perhaps?
