Hiya Peeps

Can anyone please help me. I recently purchased call of duty 4 and when I go to alter my graphic settings. Cod4 closes and a direct x error box appears on my screen.

My graphics card is all updated which is a nvidia geforce 6600 pci 16.

Anyone any ideas to why I should get this error box ?

Regards

It probably installs DX9 with the game but make sure you have the latest DX9, and the latest drivers for your card; click here

I have downloaded the lastest drivers to my card but the error im getting is :

DirectX encounted an unrecoverable error

Check the readme for possible solutions

Lots of people with similar problems, for COD2 too judging by a `google`. Do DirectX tests work properly? Problems in any other games?

Go to START then RUN and type dxdiag and see if any error are reported and tell us what version of Direct X it says you have.

The version my pc is running at is :

DirectX 9.0c

comes up with no problems found.

I dont have any probs with any other games I play so why this one ? :(

Try reinstalling Direct X 9c its the only thing I can think of but if there was something wrong dxdiag should have reported something.
Graphics wise you should be using driver 163.75 out on 6th Nov 2007.

Yes thats the driver im using at the mo. Ill try the direct 9.0 again. Ill let u know if it works but cant see this being the problem as its ran all my other games perfectly :S and as you said it would of detected an error when i did the dxdiag run
