On COD4 I keep on getting this problem: UBYTE4N vertex data.
----- Initializing Renderer ---- ----- Client Initialization Complete ----- Attempting 44 kHz 16 bit [Windows default] sound ----- R_Init ----- Getting Direct3D 9 interface... Pixel shader version is 2.0 Vertex shader version is 0.0 Video card or driver doesn't accelerate transform and lighting. Video card or driver doesn't support UBYTE4N vertex data.
Error during initialization: Video card or driver doesn't support UBYTE4N vertex data.
Re: on COD4 I keep on getting this problem: UBYTE4N...
Simply put it means your Video card is not up to the min standards to play this game.
Do you know what video card is in your PC?
Is it a laptop or desktop?
COD4 needs 100% compatible DirectX 9.0c card with at least 128mb of ram.
Yours I'm afraid doesn't appear to be.
As the game is initializing it checks for the basic requirements to run, as you can see as it reaches the direct 9 interface it seems to except your pixel shader version but can't find transform and lighting (vertex shader) which it needs in order to run, so hence comes up with the error.
You may have to upgrade to DirectX 9c if it will allow you to do so, if not:
The chances are you have an older PC with an older video card (which could possibly be changed and upgraded), or you have a PC with an integrated card (which could also be upgraded) or a laptop with integrated graphics (which will almost be impossible to upgrade)
Although there are some amazing laptops on the market, they are not generally that good at playing high spec modern games, simply put because they are compact, they do not have the room to use the large high powered video cards necessary to do so.
come back with a few more details

What game? You have Intel Graphics, which if you update the graphics drivers might just support ubyte4n (OpenGL 2.1) vertex data; but if you're running something more sophisticated than Peggle (say, Far Cry) you would want a recent vintage of ATI videocard as no doubt mentioned in the install text and on the game's front matter (box, Steam news, etc.) as well. You get one PCI x16 slot to put such a card in; no SLI (but then the cost stays helpfully under $200.)
Hi, The problem is that your card sounds terrible. Either it is extremely
old and outdated (in which case get a new one such as the minimum spec
requirements on the box), you only have two options. The first is to take the game back, or the second is to buy a new computer or video card that supports the minimum requirements. It sounds to me like you are using the on-board graphics port, my advice would be to purchase a new graphics card, anything not under 512MB as most of today's games require 512MB as minimum.
Hi, your laptop does not have a compatible graphics card enough to let you play COD 4, COd 4 requires a high end graphics card to play this game.
Below are the minimum specifications needed to play this game.
CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 2.4 GHz or AMD(R) Athlon(TM) 64 2800+ processor or any 1.8Ghz Dual Core Processor or better supported
RAM: 512MB RAM (768MB for Windows Vista)
Harddrive: 8GB of free hard drive space
Video card (generic): NVIDIA(R) Geforce(TM) 6600 or better or ATI(R) Radeon(R) 9800Pro or better
Hope this helps!
You sound like you are on top of things, but I will give you some tasks to do first.
Since I have no idea on what all you have done, I have some questions / suggestions. 1st: Have you Defragmented your computer? If not this month, please do so ASAP. 2nd: How much free space is left on your hard drive? You need over 15% free space. 3rd: Have you cleaned out you cookies, temp Files & Temp. Internet Files? 4th: Every item you add or install anything on your computer, it starts running each time you boot up. This eats up your limited power and processor.To see this you will need to use the CRTL/ALT/DELETE keys to open up your TASK MANAGER On the right side you will see a TAB called START UP. Each item that is checked or ********** is running in the background. You do not need this stuff running. Its a gift of Microsoft to make it start faster for you and is no longer a needed item since you have so much power. Uncheck most if not all items, like MSN or YAHOO chat, Games and anything not directly related to the computer operation.
Please keep me informed.
no there aren't any drivers, but the problem you will have is that the bios is updated to suit Vista and installing XP will cause problems with components in the notebook.
My advice is to keep Vista if you havent already uninstalled the operating system, but you will notice that your hard disk has two partitions, install XP on the other partition and have a dual boot notebook, if you have uninstalled then lend a friends copy of Vista and use your own instalation product key code on the underside of your notebook and re install.
