"Could not load OpenGL. Make sure that you have the latest drivers for your video card from the manufacturer's web site"

You can download updated drivers and Nvidia's website: http://www.nvidia.co...ers/drivers.asp. I'm not sure your card is directx 9 compatable.

Ive already downloaded that driver and im pretty sure its an appropriate 1 because it shows NVIDIA's logo right on the back on the actual game

A mirror is just a server in which you can download a file. Each different mirror contains the exact same file. I believe you are going to need a new graphics card but I would like someone else here to cofirm it. IF this is the case I would check out the Geforce FX series. They go for around $50 and are fully DX9 compatable.

Also the Nvidia label on the back of the game is more marketing then anything else. An ATI card would run the game just as well as a Nvidia.

OK now there are 3 different versions of CoD. Is it V CoD (CoD 1) CoD:UO or CoD 2?

If it's CoD 2 you won't be able to play with your graphics.

1. Re-install

2. Post back

3.Manually install it

4. Post back :whistling:

5. We will get to that if nothing else works. At its most basic level, OpenGL is a specification, meaning it is simply a document that describes a set of functions and the precise behaviors that they must perform. From this specification, hardware vendors create implementations — libraries of functions created to match the functions stated in the OpenGL specification, making use of hardware acceleration where possible. Hardware vendors have to meet specific tests to be able to qualify their implementation as an OpenGL implementation.

OpenGL serves two main purposes:

To hide the complexities of interfacing with different 3D accelerators, by presenting the programmer with a single, uniform API.
To hide the differing capabilities of hardware platforms, by requiring that all implementations support the full OpenGL feature set (using software emulation if necessary).

If you want more info on it go to http://en.wikipedia..../OpenGL#Example

he main reason I have seen this happening is not updated graphics but you have done that so it maybe a malfunction in the game you have. Just try the steps I said before and post back for me.
