When ever I go to open up COD Multiplayer from the start menu it gives me a fatal error message saying "Could not load OpenGL. Make sure that you have the latest drivers for your video card from the manufacturers website.". I dont know what I need or what to do. Please please please help me. Thank you.

You said it happens when running CoD Multiplayer. I suppose it also happens when running CoD Single Player? Did you install your graphics card display driver or your Windows XP operating system installed it automatically? Windows XP usually installs display driver automatically, but you can't play OpenGL and Direct 3D games with it. You have to install official Nvidia or ATi display driver in order to play OpenGL and Direct 3D games properly.

Downloading the latest drivers for your videocard will solve the OpenGL errors. This is a very well known error in the Quake Engine, and in most cases simply updating the Drivers fixes the problem.

And if that doesn't help, try this thread in the MOH forums, since both MOH and COD use the same engine that fix might help for you as well.

Just make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest drivers from http://www.nvidia.com/ or http://www.ati.com/ (depends on what graphics card you have) and the problem should be solved. Aso make sure your operating system is updated. DirectX 9.0b or newer is required. And make sure your graphics card supports DirectX 9 and OpenGL.

I wiped my computer like 5 days ago so that could be the problem. I already have installed latest DirectX or w/e so I might just need to go to my graphics card website and download latest update. THANK YOU SO MUCH. Ill let you know how it went.:)
