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 Either it is extremely old and outdated (in which case get a new one such as the minimum spec requirements on the box), you only have two options.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.


Good luck

We are trying to load modern warfare 2 and I am getting a message Error during initialization: Video card or driver doesn't support UBYTE4N vertex data. What are some options?


1. Look online for the newest device-driver for your video-card.

2. Purchase a new "high-end" video-card, remove the old video-card, install the new video-card, and load the device-drivers from the CD-ROM that came with the new video-card.

3. Don't try to load the "Modern Warfare 2" software.

UBYTE4N vertex data COD5: for the computer not working! plz help


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.

COD4 Computer Version Troubles


The error message you got would show up in the following scenarios:
1. DirectX not up-to-date.
2. Video card drivers old.
3. The game being played with a not supported video card.

Check for the above mentioned and it should be either one of them.

To play the game on the least possible settings your video card has to be or meet the performance capabilities of ATI Radeon 9800Pro or better \ NVIDIA Geforce 6600or better
