Call of Duty tech issue need help!

I just got a new computer and when I installed Call of Duty, everything was fine. I started the game and went through the cinematics and when I got to the main menu nothing was there.

I could see the knife and Thompson Submachine Gun but nothing else. No wording or anything. I could click on the options but I could not see anything. I tried to guess where the new game option was and I found it. I started the game and the diary of the soldier popped up and it loaded then crashed to the games main menu and said something i couldnt see. I tried multiplayer but it just crashed and said Fatal Error.

So i cant see anything and if I try to start a game by guessing where the stuff is it crashes. It makes no sense! I could play it on my old computer with these specs:

Pentium 3 1.0 GHZ

256 MB RAM

Nvidia FX5200 128 MB

My new system has these specs:

AMD Athlon 64 3200+

1024 MB RAM

ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 256-bit 128 MB

At first I thought maybe the old video in my new computer couldn't handle it: Nvidia MX 440 128 MB, but when I put my (800pro it did the same thing. So if anyone could help me fix this and let me play CoD, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

wondering about the motherboard since this is a new system. Any possibility that you have on=board video that has never been disabled causing you to have two video adapters/cards loading at the same time? Check your motherboard manual to see if that's the case, and if so, go into the bios and disable the on-board card, save and exit.

You don't say who built the system for you, but if it's custom build or home build, perhaps the RAM is defective? Any tweaking done regarding overclocking the CPU or the video card? If so, tweak it back a notch or two.

Just a WAG.

Is there a chance that the new machine does not have the proper mobo drivers install?

Is there a chance that with the flipping around of vid cards the proper vid driver is not installed?

Is it just this one game that fails? or do you have other things that fail?

Its a new machine. Not ready for game.

In reply to: Re: Call of Duty tech issue need help!

Here's why. Your new machine is likely just a plain install of the OS, maybe the drivers from the supplied CDs. It will not have the latest BIOS, nor the latest drivers for motherboard, video, audio and more.

You should pester the supplier why they make you work so hard.

Ya what R.P. said

Isn't it annoying to spend 1500 bucks on a machine and then find that you have to spend multi hours upgrading products so the machine will run.

And if you don't know what your doing the first time you hit the net to get the updates you'll last about 20 seconds before your toast.

Geez are we having fun yet.....
