direct x problem
Im playing Call of Duty 2, and the settings for graphics and sound are default, and it doesnt look too good, so i try to put it to optimal settings. Thats what it recommends. After i click apply the screen turns black and i get that warning noise. i go into task manager to get to the desktop. And it says this: DirectX has encountered an unrecoverable error. So it gives me the FAQ for directx automatically. It said to make sure my hardware accelerator is set to full. And to make sure all the Directx features are enabled in the dxdiag. Also to update video drivers. And i did all these things. It still doesnt work. I recently got my sound card, but it had been working right after i got it. And i try to play now and it doesnt work. Ive also tried reinstalling the newest version direct x. Im stumped. I just wanna play it with optimal settings without having to reinstall the whole game.
