You could try removing directx with a third party utility such as Directx Eradicator and then reinstalling. Program requires Windows XP CD.

Ok, Im not tech guy but here is how I solved the problem. I had an ATI 9800 Pro and I first updated XP to SP2 then updated the Catalyst drivers. Now CoD2 works. I can't believe I actually 1) solved a tech problem and 2) posted on a forum. Its a first x2 !!!!

Good luck

Guys who are smarter than me,

I am having the same problem as agross. Please explain in retard-proof detail about what you XP thing I should update and how? What the [bleep] is SP2?

My computer is almost brand new (6 months). I have an Intel ® Extreme Graphics 2 card.

Hello Hana007 and welcome to Geeks To Go!

SP2 is service pack 2. It's an update for Windows XP that fixes loads of bugs and security vulnerabilities.
Info can be found here and well as a download link and a link to order a CD version.

I've noticed that you've only got Intel Extreme 2 graphics, unfortunately the Intel graphics aren't very good for running modern games and you won't be able to play the game with it. You need to upgrade the graphics card!

I would recommend nothing less than a Geforce 6800.
The price nowadays is about £120 for the lowest card in the 6800 series.

No, there isn't a cost free way of resolving the issue.

The alot of the ATIs are better cards. They make the fastest at the moment and their old cards were faster as well, the x850s are getting pretty cheap now and x800s are really cheap and they are easy to get hold of.
