    I know I don't have an ATI card, but I found this by searching Google for "cod4 jerky"

    When I launch CoD4 everything is very slow and jerky. I can't even get into the game. The very beginning "Infinity Ward" logo takes about 1 minute to do its thing (which is a stillframe of an "i" with a random bit of **** around that changes every 5-6 seconds). The game totally freezes as soon as it starts trying to show the game intro. If I minimize the game, all of the intro stuff can play out (the sound still plays) but as soon as I go back in, it freezes.

    Before I upgraded the RAM and OS the game would work perfectly if I restarted the computer AND DID NOTHING ELSE before playing CoD4. If I had even done a little web browsing, it would cause a little bit of jerkiness. If I tried CoD4 after playing a different game or after playing itself FORGET IT!

    I could tell when the game wasn't going to work by the background fog on the selection screens. It would pause for a second or so and then go real fast for a fraction of a second and then pause again... When the fog was paused, my mouse wouldn't move. Any mouse movement during the freeze would "catch up" to the on-screen cursor during the time that the fog would go fast, to be where I had moved. The length of time the freezes would last seemed to be directly linked to how much stuff I had done with my computer before trying to play CoD4. As I've said, I was able to get it to work perfectly by restarting before playing.

    My current problem, though, seems to be the same thing multiplied by a factor of 500. I tried launching the game in the safe mode it recommends, but it was exactly the same.

    As I said, I was able to run this game fine before I added 4gb of RAM and changed OS from XP to XP x64 bit. My system is:
    MB: ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe
    Proc: AMD X2 Dual Core 5600
    RAM: 6GB Corsair XMS2 (2x2GB & 2x4GB [the 4GB was just added]
    Vid: 2xEVGA GeForce 8600 GTS (Superclocked) 256MB running with SLI enabled.

    I just installed the newest drivers after installing my OS, so old driver-leftovers aren't possible. (I completely formatted before installing my OS)

    My friend has the same MB and OS and the game runs on his computer, so don't tell me to get Vista.

    Source works great, and this game ran fine on this same machine with 1 less video card and 4GB less RAM, so don't blame my computer.

    It seems like it's probably some sort of memory allocation issue, but, frankly, I don't know anything about that.

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.

GEFORCE FX 5500 video quality low, slow motion videos and games


well if your trying to game on a pc the 5500 isnt quite sufficient. If you dont know about nvidia you are about 5 generations back of days cards. So the card wont handle any of todays games. If your really trying to game i suggest you build/buy a new rig. But as far as playing videos, quality should be good. Try goin to nvidia.com and downloading the newest drivers.

About graphic card


most top-end cards will work with your computer and boost performance a bit but... your CPU and the (these days) very low amount of RAM (for e.g. this little laptop I'm using has 3 GIG of ram) would NOT enable you to play the (latest) games... if you got them to run at all they would be mind-numbingly slow.

Biggest performance boost you could give your computer and help towards playing latest games would be more RAM.. as much as you can fit in. More RAM is the best upgrade you can give a computer

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.

I have three suggestion. Since your currently using your old video card now I'd like you to update windows. You need to have at least .Net framework 2.0 installed in your PC. Do not skip installtion of earler version of .Net framework like 1.0, 1.1.
If you haven't updated in a while this may take some time.
Download & install DirectX 9.c at this link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&displaylang=en
Download your latest drivers from PowerColor here: http://www.powercolor.com/eng/support_driver.asp?CategoryID=1&SeriesID=2&ModelID=7
Restart the PC. After windows finishes loading remove your older video software from Control Panel -Add/Remove. Shut down PC, unplug power cord. Remove older video card, clean slot with a blast of canned air or clean paint brush. Install newer card. Make sure it is seated correctly. Re-connect Pc & boot to windows. Install downloaded drivers. If your card continues to wig-out after 10-45 min, it might be over heating. Make sure you have plenty of fresh air to enter the case.
