Call of duty-could not load opengl.

By im a thinker
Mar 19, 2006
  1. When trying to load call of duty, a fatal error repot comes up and says that it could not load opengl. Then it says to make sure that you have the latest drivers for your video card from the manufacturers website. My computer is not meant for gaming that much. Its a dell. I have the best video card in it that it can hold and im pretty sure its a 256 mb. I am able to play star wars republic commando, but im not able to play battlefield 2. So why is this message popping up if i was able to play call of duty a while ago, but not now?
