I've just bought a new display/monitor - Asus VG248QE that I paired with my GPU using a new displayport cable.

When trying to run CoD2_mp.exe I get black screen as if the game would run normally, but instead it just closes in seconds and sends me back to Windows desktop.

I think I have all the settings placed correctly as seen on picture below.


CoD2_mp.exe compatibility settings:

[x] Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
[x] Disable display scaling on high DPI settings
[x] Run this program as an administrator

Other games like PUBG, Call of Duty 4 (MW), CS:GO,.. run just fine.

Thanks in advance!

It sounds stupid but try to plug in a microphone in the red space on your PC.


Like on the picture, simply plug something in and try to restart COD2.
