Ok wtf is going on......ever since I bought CoD I have been having the same problem....it shuts my monitor off when I play and I can't turn it back on so I have to reboot my system. I have the 1.4 patch installed, have reinstalled the game 3 times now but still can't get it to run right. Any ideas on how to fix this?????????????
Make sure your video card is compatible with CoD, download it's latest drivers, and check the cable connecting your monitor to the video card.
This should be in the problems forum...but anyways
What are your PC specs?
My video card is all up to date, Radeon 9000 pro, 512 mg ram, AMD 2500xp cpu.
This problem is related to CoD only, nothing else has ever caused my monitor to shut off like this, it is a legitimate copy of the game. I have no hardware or software problems otherwise.
What is your refresh rate set at, if you set it to high, the monitor will go into a black screen, So if your monitor top refresh rate is 85, and you try to set it to 90, when you start cod, the screen goes black, check your display settings and video card setting which are in the same control panel (display).
