Question about XFX NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT 512MB DDR3 PCI Express Graphics Card
Hey guys i have a 8800 GT alpha dog edition from xfx nvidea card... i
actually used to play cod 4 with the driver 169.21..... I had already
finished cod4 modern warfare once with nvidea driver 169.21.. i
recently played call of duty 4 modern warfare with the new nvidea
driver 178.24 , but just within 15 minutes my comp restarted ... I kept
on trying more than 10 times but when ever there is a huge explosion or
any massive graphical requirement my pc just restarts while playing the
game....But when i reinstalled the nvidea driver with 169.21 the game
seems to be working just fine .. i played more than 3 hours on a
stretch without any restart issues...I even installed the latest nvidea
driver180.48 and 181.20 from nvidea website and still am having the
same problem that i had with the driver 178.24 the pc just restarts..
But i have no problem playing crysis or assains creed for any long
duration with the latest nvidea drivers 178.24 or 180.48... so please
help me if any one has able to solve the problem or encountered such an
issue cause every time i have to reinstall the old driver 169.21 to
play cod 4...
i also have the latest patch 1.7 for cod 4 and do not encounter any problem with any other game...
The temp runs around 63-69 when i run cod 4...
My System spec
AMD ATHLON X2 dual core 5000+
2 gb Ram
windows 32 bit xp professional...
I will take a stab at this, I advise that you contact Nvidea about this issue and COD 4 also, so they can get programmers working on it, it is very important you supply them with all your components you are using to see if they can reproduce your error, also be aware there could be hardware issues internal to your machine you may not have been aware of IE. the mb may have some bad caps or the Nvidea card may have bad caps , but I think it is a video processing error that either Nvidea should be aware of and COD programmers, they will want to know if the new drivers are having problems, and with what game. or games, my recommedation woul dbe to keep with the older driver and wait for a replacemetn it seems that the other games will run on the old 169 ver. Newest drivers are not always compatable with the newst game they can have issues for 6 months or for ever if no one informs teh game designers and teh video card designers.
I hope this helps, mozzilla is not needed...but it hink you know that...

The game is probably not compatible
or you can download mozilla foxfire to run the game
