Playing Call of duty 4 on vista

I have a Toshiba Laptop with vista home premium, it is only 6 months old. I have loaded call of duty 4 and it will not play. The message says - video card or driver doesn't support UBYTE4N Vertex data.

I have down loaded directx 9.0c and have enough all of the specs required to play the game. I have also checked id my video card driver is upto date and it says it is - can you help?

Re: Playing Call of duty 4 on vista

Vista is a bugger for keeping bits of everything hidden for a rainy day,i.e half your hard drive. i dont know of a solution to your problem only that if your speck says you have 200g of this and 160 of that,it actually means that it does have that but will only let you see it if you can find the answer to the devista code!!
And if you can do that then your employed by microsoft to show the people that made vista how to get back sorry

I need a serial number from a acer notebook running windows vista premium/home premium. Mine is a 751h and runs basic, so they won't ship me the free upgrade. However, there are videos all over the...

The free upgrade is sent out by the laptops manf. directly to you as long as you bought the laptop in the past 4 months. It is regardless of the current version of Windows Vista that you are running. According to an article found here

"Acer says "shipments will begin in increments. All orders will be handled on a first-in, first-out basis." So if you bought a computer last week, you could be at the end of a long line."

Best you can do at the moment is just wait, your not going to be able to do much till Acer ships out that upgrade. Even if you did install Windows Vista Premium, you would be stuck till you got the Windows 7 from the manf.

As far as I know (I have a Toshiba though a few years old now) and do a Recover to Factory Default state from Hidden Partition every 6 to 9 months and I hav enever been told to Tap F1 but instead Hold down "0" i.e he Zero button on my laptop as I turn the Laptop On from an Off state by pressing the Pwr Button and ONLY release the "0" button when I get a Recovery Meny with 4 Options I think.

Your Model might be a different Button on the Keyboard so PLEASE check your User Guide/Manual for instruction.

could try to add ram. laptops rarely have good video cards for gaming, and its prolly using system ram instead of dedicated video ram. If its using system ram, the reaction time will always be slower than if it had a suficient amount of dedicated video ram.
