Call of Duty 2 is a very specific game (search for call of duty errors on this forum lol) and it needs very specfic graphics card. I was about to buy the same game but realized it would be too much of a risk.
You've provided a GREAT deal of information--and thank you. Your best bet right now, would probably be to reinstall directx and/or check for best updates. It isn't likely, but it is possible it got corrupt. Next, realize that GEFORCE FX series are weird. A lot of games of today except GEFORECE but decline the GEFORCE FX. I'm not sure the reason, but they do.
Let me know how it goes.

When you get the replaced 5500 install it but install the latest drivers from nvidia and direct x 9 which should be installed by the game if you let it when prompted to do so.

See thats the thing, my room mate had the same problem with his pc having no agp slot and he bought the same card, from the same place. His works and mine does not. Only difference is that his pc is a older dell, and my pc is a new HP. I think it has to do with the drivers from nVidia and direct x. All of the latest drivers seem to not work on my pc. Any sugesstions would be great!
Have you tweaked the graphics settings within the 'options' menu of the game? I have a ATI 9600 All-in-Wonder video card that runs like crap with the suggested settings. I had to manually go through a bunch of settings to get the best possible fps and such.
Manually set it to 800x600 resolution, set it to directx 7 (it sucks but that's how I got mine to work), dynamic lighting to 'off', shadows to 'off', smoke 'off'. See how it runs then. Make sure to remove anything running in the background (i.e. popup blockers, email, chat progz, etc.). Is your computer that different from your room mates? Other than obviously his being a Dell and yours HP...compare memory size & speed, CPU, Hard drive speed, etc. After all that post what you've found.
