    Call Of Duty Black Ops freezes when playing it in Windows XP SP 3 but works fine with Windows 7

    I installed Call of Duty Black Ops game in my Windows 7 OS where it worked perfectly without any issues but recently I have reverted back my OS to Windows XP SP 3 for some other reasons. So now I tried to install the game in it and it just freezes, lags whenever I try to open the game. What is the problem? Why it is not working properly in Windows XP SP3 when it was working properly in Windows 7? Can you please provide a perfect solution so that I can play without any issues?

    Hi,

    A lot of issues are getting generated everyday, as antivirus, patches, service packs are a major source of conflict with installed programs.

    Though the updates are written with extreme care and backward compatibility progression etc. are kept in mind always, but not all thing can be taken care always.

    Even the games programming can get corrupt or damaged in moments without any prior notice and proper explanation.

    Easiest way is to find a fresh copy of the games and install it, of course, you need to remove the older version from the setup and then install again.

    Thank you.

    Hi Friend,

    Your Call Of Duty Black Ops freezes when playing it in Windows XP SP 3 but works fine with Windows 7

    There is due to following reasons,
    >> may be directx is damaged/corrupts,
    >> may be your games require the old directx version as per your system requirement

    So, first of all Repair the directX
    and then try to playing Call of duty

    If issue persists,
    Download and Install the Directx 9,
    and then try to playing Call of duty.

    I hope you will understood.

    All the Best.
