    in your system bios, turn off the fastwrites option, I think it is actually called AGP fastwrites but I aint sure, but if you do as I perscribe you can be sure that you will be playing that game in no time. try it and post back.

    Do you possibly have a program that has remote control features? Like LogMeIn? If so you need to uninstall it.

    same problem

    same error here when trying to launch call of duty 2. i can't find a fastwrites option in my system bios. disabling the Intel speedstep mode of the processor didn't fix it. and disabling write combining on the direct x diagnotic app didn't help either. where is the fastwrite option in the bios? any other suggestions? thanks in advance.

    The Agp fast writes option is for agp mainboards only; mainboards with a pci-e slot(s) don't have this option.

    Also try to use 'System Restore' in Windows XP to a working restore point, where you can play CoD2 without the mentioned problem.

    Or use a directX eraser tool (not recommended!), e.g. DirectX Eradicator 2.0:
    http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=626

    some important notes:

    "This utility is designed to safely uninstall DirectX runtime components from Microsoft Windows (32-bit) operating systems. DXE gives you the ability to remove and restore DirectX "on-the-fly". Thinking about reformatting? Try this first. You just might be able to save yourself from a lot of hassle.

    * Full uninstall support for DirectX 2.0 - 9.0c,
    * Full Registry cleanup; Automated rollback.

    Do keep in mind, while DirectX Eradicator has been tested extensively, the removal of DirectX may not be the proper solution to resolving hardware / software compatibility issues... Contact your OEM for assistance, or obtain the latest device drivers if you are unable to resolve these problems.

    Need help?! Take a moment to view the Readme file and get answers to questions most asked by users before taking the "plunge".

    Version 2.0 includes the following enhancements and fixes:

    * OS detection mechanism - enabling DXE to be run on ALL? localized
    versions of Windows 2000 or later; not just "English".
    * DX uninstall/rollback support for Windows Server 2003.
    * Automated DX rollback for Windows 98/ME ".

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the info. I've never had COD2 work on this machine, so a restore won't work for me. It sounds like I'm going to be out of luck.

    And his answer was bad anyway.. Games checks dx features at initialization, not at loading levels
