I run a Dell XPS Gen 2 M170 laptop with a Geforce 7800/256MB RAM.
COD2 will do nothing but crash and give me a "Directx unrecoverable error" no matter what I do.
I've scaled back video and audio to nothing and this still happens.
Given that this laptop runs BF2, HL2 and Fear at 1600x1200 without even slowing down, I find it hard to believe COD2 would be such a piece of crap.
I don't suppose anyone has been able to get past the Directx error?
