Put the game disc in. When it spins up look for extras or whatever. In there you should find the DX set up. Install it.

What was the error. It says at the end "check read me". You can try and do a repair. Install disc and see if it will give you that option after you hit install or uninstall.

Clean out and clean up your hard drive. Do a defrag. What hardware do you have ? Been to Windows Update lately ? How much virtual memory do you have, how much does it say you need ?

Any game patches available ? Uninstall and re-install ?

1gig of ram..???? Your system is severely under powered for this game..... 7600gt...??? I had spits and sputters with higher end video cards and ram than you run playing W@W. COD4 and 5 are different games and have different hardware needs.

I googled COD W@W patches and found 2 different ones. Actually I scrolled down further..... there's quite a few different ones. Something like 6 of them.
