Call Of Duty 4, Need SERIOUS help!!!!!!

I have thsi graphics card on my DELL dimension 5150 and i want to play COD 4 without any problems.

I bought the game the other day and had a few hours good online playing until my screen turned blue.

It says that the ATI graphics driver caused it but when i download the newest updates the online game lags so much so i cant play it.

Do you have a fix to stop my screen turning blue or a fix so that i can download a driver that doen't make the game lag or go slow.

Thank you for your help

    I don't get the blue screen, but I do have the same driver and 1 GB of RAM. The problem I have is everytime I start the the game the resolution expands to where I can hear it but can't see it because I figure it's too big. I tried too adjust my screen on my desktop but the game still responds in the same manner. Any suggestions for my current setup? Thanks in advance.

Hmmm. The blue screen isnt a good think. Even though people say what kind of model a dell computer is, doesnt describe the processor, memmory modules...how much...speed etc.

You need to uninstall your graphics drivers.

Download ccleaner and drivercleaner. Do a scan with both. Do a full driver clean with driver cleaner because it clears the junk out of your registry. Make sure you do a reg backup with both programs.

Now you can restart your computer and install the latest drivers.


the x600 card is a little on the outdated side and can probly run the game on low to medium. Start with 800x600 resolution and turn aniostropic and antiliasing off. Turn everything off that you think is necessary, start the game, and see how it runs. Download fraps so you can see your fps. If you get about 60 than you can turn a setting up. If you get 30 or lower, turn your settings down.

I hope this helps. Please contact me if you need any further advies. I also want to say that you should have at least a gig of memroy and hopefully 2 gigs to play the game at good settings.

Need a graphics card in Dell dimensions 5000 to play fall out 3


It's a common problem with people wanting to customize Dell Dimension PCs. They are a great basic PC but weren't designed to be completely tricked out. The layout for the power supply is a bit different in most of their cases and to upgrade the power supply you usually have to physically alter the case =\ There are afew video cards that have a lower draw, but I'm not sure if they are going to be that great of an upgrade.

Ack graphics card wont fit in any input slots


the adapter u are using is pci express and the dell dimension 9100 are not compatible.. try returning it for either a pci (usually the white slot) or AGP which in most cases is brown.. the AGP will be your best performance.. if return is not an option.. then it seems that a new pc is in your best interest.

Memory: 8 GB free hard-drive space, 512MB RAM (XP)/1GB RAM (Vista)

You have not given the entire model # so it is unclear if your card is sufficient, however it does say GeForce 6600GT or better - which yours is

Playing cod4, slow jerky poor performance


First of all I hope that you properly uninstalled the graphics drivers and restarted before you installed the graphics drivers for your new card. Old left over drivers can cause a major problem.

Assuming you did it right read below.


What graphics settings do you have it on? And is your firewall set to let it open?

You should also list your processor and the speed and make of your memmory.

I play cod4 on high with an agp .1950 pro @ 1024x768 resolution.

turn off antileasing and aniostropic filtering. Turn all optional settings off but keep textures on medium

No offense but you have the low end version of the hd 2xxx series and can probly only play at medium at best.

You can also go into catylst control panel and make sure the settings are auto balanced.

Leadtech winfast px 7950 gt tdh


The 7950 will have a higher requirement for power than came stock with the machine, you probably need a better power supply to run this card. However Dell needs specific power supply units so you'll need to contact Dell about getting an upgrade!

An upgrade with a non Dell power supply unit is possible but it requires a little tweaking of the case.

Good luck!
