Solved: COD WaW crash
I've been playing this game for about 2 weeks and after about a week I had to up date my video card From a NVIDIA 6600 to NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT.. This seems to have worked great until today.. At first it did not want to advance to the last Russan level were you enter the main building in Berlin.. It just stoped loading and shut down and returned me to my desk top. After fussing with a few settings now I get an DirectX Error message..
" DirectX encountered an unrecoverable error.
Check the readme file for possible solutions "
I've reinstalled My video card and up dated the drivers.. Installed the lates ver of Direct X " 9.25.1476 "
Any help on this one? Thanks RussP

The only fix I ended up with was to redo my computer and start fresh. This is the first time for this computer since buying it. ( Long over do ) With everthing being loaded back up fresh, everthing works ok. I'm thinking I may need to add more ram? I still get some chatter during the audio and video play back while it's loading each level. My son-in-law is a computer tech-guy at Pitt university and he thinks that my mother board is lacking a bit too ( needs to be faster ) to accommodate the intense game play.. But the games all play well.. COD4, COD5 and Brothers in Arms. Had to start each one over, because I wasn't sure which folder the saved games were in. But then I don't mind the do overs, all three games are fun to play even the second time around. I was over half way through them all when this happened..
