this is a common issue with certain cards...this sounds patronising but make sure your drivers are up to date and other than that there aint a lot u can do other than play in dx7 mode until IW fix the issue although when one of my pcs did it they just told me my system was shite i hate them! on a seperate note anyone with ati card problems can head on over to and this guy is wicked and should sort out all ur probs no worries.
