first check task manager to see if you have anything running to slow it down. second, have you updated the drivers for the card recently? if not, give that a shot. what kind of card is it BTW? The memory on a video card can go bad, but that is very uncommon.
do what you suggested to yourself and test it in singleplayer, it could just be your internet connection as well if its only lagging in multiplayer. check your ping too
basically what you have to think is at about what time did it start slowing down, and is there anything, even the smallest thing, that you changed at around that time?
me for instance, I had an AMD 3200+ and upgraded to a 4800+ X2 dual core. I hadnt played BF2 until a few days after i got the processor, and then about a day later i started encountering a problem staying connected to servers. it wouldnt lock up the game or crash, it would just disconnect and kick me to the main menu. this started happening after i installed the 1.4 patch so i immediately blamed that. but after about 2 minutes worth of research I learned that BF2 doesnt like running on dual cores, so now every time I start it up I have to set it to run on one core. who would think that upgrading a processor would cause you to continually lose connection to a server?
