PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: XPpro SP2
Problem Application Name & Version: Call of Duty[fresh install]
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages: Call of duty has encountered a problem and must close
[no amount of reopening or rebooting my machine eradicates this problem]



Well I can run it for about 5 minutes.. when all of a sudden it closes. After it closes my desktop and everythings is extremely bright, I check the color settings and everything is normal.
I used to run it on a 98se machine with the same video card, and the same desktop resolution. It worked fine on the 98 machine, although the 98 machine was 16bit high colors and my XP machine is 32bit color as default.

Should I change the color setting of my desktop, because the only change really is OS and Motherboard, I doubt the motherboard is affecting it so the 32 bit color is the only thing I can think of..

Any ideas?

I think you have an ATI videocard, don't you? If you do, rightclick on the desktop in Windows, properties, Settings, Advanced, VPU Recover. Uncheck both of the options of the VPU recovery and press Apply, then OK out.

Now try the game again, I will want to bet you the game won't bork out anymore.
If it still does, make sure you get the latest ATI catalysts for your card from this link, then uninstall your old videocard drivers & control panel through add/remove programs, before you reboot and install the latest drivers.

You can just take the normal Cats, no special need for the Control Center drivers yet. They will only add to the burden.

Doh soz.. I guess I should have mentioned my video card.

It's and Nvidia Geforce fx5200.

However now my DVDRW aint workin.

I was usin daemon tools... and hit unmount drives, any other time it unmounted the virtual drives but it removed my real drive, now iv tried uninstalling it and reinstalling the drive.. updating drivers and restarting the machine.. no matter how many times there is still an exclamation mark marked beside it in device manager... it really sucks.. it was fine now my mistake with daemon tools had fluffed it!
