[FIX]Hello guys, a quick FIX. When the activision logo appears, press fast ALT + Enter and then it will be on windowed mode. Set it on fullscreen and that’s it

I really dont know. I’m trying to fix for days now. The problem is that I love this game and i dont want to refund it or similar s**t. I have very decent pc specs (i7 2,4GHz, 16gb ram, 1050gtx 4gb and game installed on 1 tb of ssd). The game just crashes after about 10 minutes I play it. No error messages. Please help!

I tried a lot, reparing, new installation etc. but it was very simple in the end. I have a NVIDIA GeForce graphic card. If i look into it via Windows it always said the driver is up to date. But if you install GeForce experience there is a really new Game Ready Driver. You can install it as well from the NVIDIA website: https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/158181/en-us (this was for my system)
Afterwards the game starts perfectly fine!

I had the problem that on my new pc call of duty modern warfare would just randomly close. No error messages, just throwing me to the desktop, closing the game.

So after trying to fix cod on my system for a few days, i stumbled across the suggestion to disable ALL non Microsoft services via “msconfig”. That worked!

What you do is searching for “msconfig” on your task bar search bar, launch the msconfig.exe, choose the tab called “services”, check the box below that says “hide all Microsoft services”, then select disable all. Apply. After that you’ll have to restart your pc. Now all your non-Microsoft services should be disabled. If the game works now, you can start activating the services you need step by step to pinpoint the service causing the crashes. I just enabled the ones i really need such as my mouse, audio driver etc and didn’t bother trying the others cause it still worked.

Hope to help some peeps with this cause this problem was annoying, nothing else seemed to help for my case.

I did #7 #9 #10 and deactivated my Onboardsound, Updatet the Driver vor External Headset Tactical3D, then i removed the Writeprotect for the Folder. The Gamefolder and Battel.net.
If the Intro is coming up Skip it with a Mouseklick and now it works for me. Cant tell where the problem exactly was.

With my 2nd monitor ENABLED, the game would start and display some logos and then black screen–no way to play. When I DISABLED my 2nd monitor, the game started normally. Thank you.

I used to get the black screen and crashes, did few of the option on top and then played for a few hours… till I got the blue screen with code CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED

Honestly a little surprising, but just killing my background AutoHotKey process did the trick. No idea how that could be interfering with things, but it really does seem to be as simple as that.

I think that #8 solved for me, but I did several other steps too (except #6).
But beware to at least don’t shutdown Networking service nor Audio like I did in first time.
When I checked that it worked, I toggled back like 90% of Windows services – the rest stayed turned off.

Well, I’m a victim of the crash. Purchased PC version of Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Installed it (*** me it’s 150+GB install) and pressed PLAY 🙂 🙂 And that’s it. Black screen indicating that the game launched, then after 5-6 sec it crashes and a Huge blue “battlenet” button PLAY 🙂 🙂 I’m gonna follow the above mentioned fixes and if any of them work I’ll let you know. Currently trying to update Geforce + install Windows 10 updates.
