    Can't get Call of Duty to run on this new MBO & CPU.
    It locks up when it loads the game, opening screens run fine.

    OS: WIN XP Pro Service Pack 2 all currant updates.
    DirectX (DirectX 9.0c)

    Motherboard Name Soyo KT880 DRAGON 2 v2.0

    AMD Althon XP 3200
    Memory 1 gig or ram total 2 512 mb sticks of OCZ SDRAM (spec. below)

    DIMM1: OCZ OCZ4001024V3DC-K
    DIMM3: OCZ OCZ4001024V3DC-K
    Memory Module Properties
    Module Name OCZ OCZ4001024V3DC-K
    Serial Number None
    Module Size 512 MB (2 ranks, 4 banks)
    Module Type Unbuffered

    Error Detection Method None

    Video Card

    Video Adapter Properties
    Device Description NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200
    Adapter String GeForce FX 5200
    BIOS String Version
    Chip Type GeForce FX 5200
    DAC Type Integrated RAMDAC
    Installed Drivers nv4_disp ( - nVIDIA ForceWare 71.84)
    Memory Size 256 MB

    I Installed the 1.5 patch from Activision NO differance

    Tried older and newest NVIDIA Drivers NO difference

    Tried two 512mb sticks of Corsair PC3200 NO difference
    Tried a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 128mb video card NO difference
    The game runs fine on the PC I got these parts out of.

    Talked to SOYO and they told me to up the memory voltage a step at a time.
    APG slot voltage.
    And adjust the Memory timings, so one at a time I adjusted these settings.
    NO Difference

    When the game locks up, in Task Manager the CPU usage stays at 100% until I
    end the game program from the applications tab.

    Any one else have this problem? The PC run's great otherwise.
    It seam to have a problem with Graphic Accelerated games.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks, Fred Kenngott

    i’m not a gamer so i don’t know if i can help much but check your
    memory and cpu stabilty.

    i’d use memory86 to test your memory. run it overnite and check for
    errors. if some show up it might be fixable by raise the dimm voltage
    or timings. i don’t think it will be a bad stick because you have the
    same problem with both brands.


    if all checks out ok then run prime95 to test cpu and memory. under
    options/torture test/blend. watch your temps but don’t be suprised to
    see numbers in the 50s. running this overnite is also a good idea. as
    long as your not overclocking that should be good enough.


    if this is ok then it back to trouble shooting drivers and the such.
