CoD2 Dx Error with Vista

Recommended Posts

i just got a brand newsony vaio laptop, with directx 10, 2gb ram, 200gb hd, 1.8ghz dual cpu, and vista hp. I wanted to play Call of Duty 2, but when I finished installing it, at first it would just stop responding, then I ran it in SP-2 compatibility mode, and it gave me a DirectX error. Is this because i have DirectX 10, and it needs DirectX 9.0c (it may not, I don't know), or is it another problem?

Make sure that you have the latest drivers for your graphics card, sound card and motherboard (although sometimes downgrading graphics drivers might also help). Make sure all unnecessary background tasks have been closed. Try setting the hardware acceleration for your sound card to Basic acceleration. Try downloading DirectX from the Microsoft site and reinstalling it.

If you have nVidia - xFire has been known to cause some unrecoverable directx errors. If you have it installed try disabling it.
