Game Fixes – Call of Duty: Black Ops — Lag, Steam Errors, Crash, Black Screen PC Game Fixes

Call of Duty Black Ops Game Fixes

Like Call of Duty: Black Ops? Good! After all, every single CoD game is fun! 🙂

Errors occur with this game though, which you may need to troubleshoot.

Follow our guide to fixing these PC game problems. From game lag to game freezes, we have a solution for each. Note that some issues with the game may only be fixable through a patch released by the creators. For all the rest that do not, take a look below!

Lag Game Fixes

This section pertains to PC game fixes for lag.

Call of Duty Black Ops Takes 100% of System Resources / Lag
This will hopefully be fixed by a patch later on. Big bug.

1) Launch Steam in Offline Mode
2) Start the game
3) Exit Steam.exe via Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL, Process Tab)

Solution From: Steam Forums

Game Lags / Lagging / Stuttering / Jittery
If your game seems to be skipping frames or is just lagging, then try the following general game fixes first:

Exit all unneeded programs and services
Lower your game resolution / graphics settings
Turn OFF game shadows

If the above doesn’t do it for you, as it likely won’t, then try:

1) Open Task Manger (CTRL+ALT+DEL)
2) Right click on the game under “Processes”, Call of Duty: Black Ops
3A) Set the Affinity to ONE CPU
OR, if that doesn’t help
3B) Right click the game under processes, and Set Priority to “HIGH” (you do not normally want to do this though)

Solution taken from Steam Forums

More PC Game Fixes for Lag
Try these:
Type cl_maxpackets 100 in the game console (then re-open the game)
Disabling Steam Cloud (right click the game in the Steam library -> properties -> updates uncheck “Enable Steam Cloud sync”

Solution from Steam Forums

You Can Try the Following Tweaks:
These all help decrease lag–

/cg_brass – set this to “0” to help decrease lag
/r_blur_allowed – set this to “0” to help decrease lag
/r_cachemodellighting – set this to “1” to help decrease lag
/r_cacheSmodellighting – set this to “1” to help decrease lag
/r_distortion – set this to “0” to help decrease lag
/r_dof_enable – set this to “0” to help decrease lag
/r_glow_allowed – set this to “0” to help decrease lag
/r_multiGpu – set this to “0” if you don’t use a more than one graphics card.
r_specular – set this to “0” to help decrease lag

Solution From: gamers-underground

Another PC game fix that you can try is a config_mp.cfg modification. It’s simple to do and requires only editing 2 modifications.
1) Go to the players folder for Call of Duty: Black Ops. For Steam, it’s located here:

Steam\\steamapps\common\\call of duty black ops\\players\\config_mp.cfg

2) Open config_mp.cfg and make the following changes:

seta r_glow_allowed “1” to seta r_glow_allowed “0”
seta r_gfxopt_dynamic_foliage “1” to seta r_gfxopt_dynamic_foliage “0”

Solution from Steam Forums

Error Game Fixes

This section contains PC game fixes for game errors.

“BlackOpsMP.exe has stopped working”

If this error is showing up for you, then try

Running the game in single player mode to see if it works
Revalidating your game files

Solution from Steam Forums

“DirectX Encountered an unrecoverable error. Check the readme for possible solutions.”
If this happens for you, then try the following:
Reinstall DirectX or Upgrade it
Upgrade your video / graphics card drivers
Set the game’s compatibility mode to Windows XP SP3

If you experience this error, try the following steps:
1) Verify game cache through Steam
2) If that doesn’t work, delete the Call of Duty (CoD) Black Ops *.NFC game files located in the steamapps folder and steamapps/common folder
3) Load the game again
4) Reinstall the game if that doesn’t work

Solution from Steam Forums

Crashes / Freezes PC Game Fixes

This section pertain to pc game fixes for crashes and freezes for Call of Duty / CoD Black Ops.

Game Crashes After Changing Resolution
This game problem has been occurring for some. Your game may in fact crash when changing the resolution. Await a patch for this to be fixed.

Game Crashes at Menu
Try the following PC game fix:

1) Navigate to the following directory

Steam\\steamapps\\common\\call of duty black ops\\players\\

2) Rename config.cfg to configBAK.cfg
3) Rename config_mp.cfg as well

I suggest renaming rather than deleting in case you may need those two files again later.

Suggestion from Steam Forums

Game Freezes
Your game may be freezing. Try the following game pc fixes:

Play in offline mode
Right click the game EXE -> properties and set the compatibility mode to Windows XP SP3 (service pack 3)
Disable any programs that may interfere with the game (i.e. anti-virus or firewall)
Reinstall DirectX

Sounds Problems PC Game Fixes

Have issues with the game audio? Check out these PC game audio fixes and more at segmentnext.

Can’t Hear Game Sound / No Sound
If there is no sound / audio or you cannot hear it (the sound may be very low, but still on), try the following PC game fixes:

Note: Verify that your sounds IS NOT muted! Your audio may be set to “MUTE” because of the game!

1) Launch the game
2) ALT+TAB then go to Start -> Run -> Sndvol32 (or load master volume through Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment -> Volume Control)
3) Drag the Master Volume and/or the Wave audio tickers / slider further up until you can hear the game. Be sure to lower it again if this doesn’t work or once you’re done playing to prevent your sound from blasting! Also, make sure “mute” or “mute all” isn’t checked…

Solution 2 (Windows 7)

1) Go to My Computer -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Sound -> Communications (tab)
2) Select the “Do Nothing” option

Solution 3

1) Go to My Computer -> Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices -> Volume (tab)
2) Click on the “Advanced” button under “Speaker Settings” and click on the “Performance” tab
3) Try setting “Hardware acceleration” to NONE AND/OR try setting “Sample rate conversion quality” to GOOD (it’s on “best” by default). Note that you should try doing these one at a time, and then both at once, as the least amount of settings altered is what you want to achieve

Solution 4

1) Locate the game EXE
2) Right click it -> Properties -> and set the compatibility to Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) compatibility mode

Solution 5
This one is identical to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare sound fix that many used previously.
1) Setting your audio to 16bit 48000hz playback
Solution from Steam Forums

Solution 6

1) Navigate to your game folder -> redist -> DirectX
2) Run the DXsetup setup again

steamapps\\common\\call of duty black ops\\Redist\\DirectX\\DXSETUP.exe

Solution from Steam Forums

Misc PC Game Fixes

Unable to Download Game / Game Unavailable
This occurs when the servers are loaded with many people. The only solution to this is to wait and be patient. Try again later, perhaps during off hours when most people are asleep.

Steam Disconnects / is Offline / Connection Lost / Fetching Stats Freezes Game Fix
This is a problem occurring for many users. It is currently being worked on by their staff. For the time being, if this is causing you problems, then

How to Change Field of View
You can change Field of View (FOV) through the console via the command /cg_fov 80 or through the game menu. Some people have problems with the game crashing when trying to change it. Try doing so through the console and if that doesn’t work, then through the game options menu.

    Asus P5K motherboard (RealTek onboard sound device)
    4GB RAM

  20. Comments  Skoleador   |  Thursday, 11 November 2010 at 12:19 PM

    I have this kind of problem, in fact, I have multiple problems with this game, first it was a black screen after interrogation intro, and now game freeze during scene in Cafe, when militia captain try to pull my hand or whatever. When i tried to start game in 800×600 resolution mode, i get this kind of message: “Error, insufficient disk space, you must have at least 5 mb of free space on game drive”. I have much more than 5 mb but problem is still. I solved that problem when i switched resolution to 1024×768. What is going on with this game. It is SKIDROW release..

  21. Comments  raisins   |  Friday, 12 November 2010 at 12:23 AM

    Well, i am one of thousands of people with the same problems, good enough pc great internet and 100% lag, stuttering, fps drops even withe everything on low. So i log on today and the guys over at CoD have released a patch, so ofc i am excited, open the game, im greeted with 3 black screens, 2 crashes so after getting past this, i get into a server, first indications were ok ran around killed a few people had a solid 60fps, 15ping, but that was short lived as the fps drops came back into play and my pc froze and crashed. So hopefully the game will be “fix’d” with the next batch of patches? who knows! but i for one am seriously and 100% dissapointed with this title so far, every cod game so far been great, but £40 for an uncomplete game i just feel it isnt great.

  33. Comments  jrdspc   |  Friday, 12 November 2010 at 8:54 PM

    There are a lot of problems that I am encountering;

    1. My rank reset when i joined a server; from rank 28 to rank 1.
    2. I can only access my acquired purchases/weapons associated with rank 28 on that server.
    3. Any other server, I am rank down to 1.
    4. I can no longer use the ‘Operations’ Menu (Create a Class/Contracts/etc); It does not save the data; and it has kept my previous classes intact; however I cannot use them but only on that one server. If I try to create a new class with my current ‘lowered’ rank; It will not save.
    5. Fatal Errors occur profusely.

    What can I do?

  34. Comments  Mashi   |  Friday, 12 November 2010 at 11:20 PM

    For people who are getting blank screen problems: got to the nvidia website and download physx. Install it on your computer and run black ops. It worked for me. See if it would work for you

  63. Comments  Naota   |  Monday, 15 November 2010 at 4:42 PM

    =) You can get updates for your video card by going to the nvidia website. They will have it in their support/downloads/drivers page. You can get it here. I would’ve provided you with a better link but that page allows you to choose multiple languages since you have trouble with english.

    and today I reinstall directx and that c++ thing, everything was ok! 🙂 i dunno how, i have done the same thing yesterday, but it wasn’t take effect 😀 ?

  73. Comments  Andrew   |  Tuesday, 16 November 2010 at 7:21 PM

    So I’ve figured what the problems was with my Call of Duty Black Ops MP graphics stuttering.
    My current setup
    Windows 7 64bit
    I7 920 stock clock
    GTX 480 latest w/GTS 250 phsyx, nvidia 260.99 drivers
    6gb ddr3
    X-fi Titanium Fatil1ty soundcard PCI-e
    Before and after the patch I was still experiencing what seemed to be mix of lag and stuttering performance problems. I’ve tried the a variety of supposed tweaks from .cfg edits of multi-thread, multi-gpu etc…but none have made a difference.
    I’ve tried setting my primary(GTX480) to handle Physx(in the nvidia control panel and had GTS250 neutral) AND reverting back to the 2nd gpu(GTS250) as physx and still no luck.
    So, just a few minutes ago I decided to remove my GTX 480 for power saving reasons and moved up the GTS250 as the primary video adapter. Fired up COD Black Ops(exact same ingame graphical settings) and played on the same server and to my surprise I was having no stuttering/lag effect issues. At first I was afraid there maybe something wrong with the gtx480 so I installed it(did not install the GTS250 as 2nd gpu) and even that everything was fine. Decided to install the GTS250, started up the game and the problems came back. I even swapped the cards around making the GTS250 as primary and 480 as second gpu and same stuttering problems again. So thru this observation can I confirm atleast with my system that running multiple gpus caused my system to render unfavorable gaming experience even after the patch installed thru Steam. I’m no expert but I hope this helps with anyone else to troubleshoot with their systems with multi-gpus.

    Some time the background application are also responsible for the issue with the Black Ops. To resolve the same it is better to close all background application and also the Windows Services which might fix the issue.

    Hey everyone! I’m having a strange problem and couldn’t fix it and was unable to find a way to fix it. I have Windows 7 64 bit. When I launch the game, during the intro the little spinning circle thingy (which tells you when windows is loading sometinhg) appears and no matter what I do, it won’t go away and the game doesn’t react. The “push a button to continue” screen appears after the intros, and the little circle is still there. It’s like COD is on my screen but my controls are in Windows, because I can quit the game using alt-ctrl-del. Any idea?

    I was getting the same error message, so I did a little research.

    Then it hit me!

    If your playing account is limited, and you have a separate Administrative account, you need to go into C:\Program Files (x86). The install directory for Black Ops should be under the developer “Activision”.

    Right click Activision, select Properties, Security Tab, and then the Edit button.

    You need to allow “Full Control” for just about everyone. My guess is that limited accounts are allowed access to BlackOps.exe on an executable level, but if your security settings don’t allow limited users to save or edit files within the Activision directory, then your game running on the limited account can’t save in the Save folder.

    Try it out; worked for me!

    Single player works like it should, my problem is during multi player ill get maybe 10 to 15 min. Of game play and then it freezes. I contacted someone with Activision and they may as well told me to F off. The the following guy told me bad graphic card “this one is new and works fine with other games.” But just to humor them I tried my old card nvidia 240. Same @&#! Different product.
    Any ideas? Game is fun but not worth the frustration. Its sad when a company is willing to push a great game out before its finished just to make the holiday bucks and then turn there back on there costumers

    I’m having a problem with freezing in-game, I just recently formatted my computer so there shouldn’t be any problems with DirectX. I’m running on Windows 7 64bit, should I still do this step?
    “– Right click the game EXE -> properties — and set the compatibility mode to Windows XP SP3 (service pack 3)”
    Since I don’t have Windows XP I don’t see why I would change the compatibility mode to it. :s

    F**king shieeet. I’m starting to get pissed off at this now, when I checked compatibility mode it keeps asking for permission (running as administrator/checking that box won’t help) to change system settings or whatever. Even if I press yes it just comes back a second later. :s

  133. Comments  Murre   |  Monday, 27 December 2010 at 9:30 PM

    “Another PC game fix that you can try is a config_mp.cfg modification. It’s simple to do and requires only editing 2 modifications.
    1) Go to the players folder for Call of Duty: Black Ops. For Steam, it’s located here:

    Steam\steamappscommon\call of duty black ops\players\config_mp.cfg

    2) Open config_mp.cfg and make the following changes:

    seta r_glow_allowed “1” to seta r_glow_allowed “0”
    seta r_gfxopt_dynamic_foliage “1” to seta r_gfxopt_dynamic_foliage “0”

    Solution from Steam Forums”

    OK everyone. it seems 99% of lag problems are with Nvidia cards. and guy with the ATI 5750 HD, im running a ATI 3300 HD with no problem… except the avalanche part… that lags a little… and i got a 5750 HD comming in the mail 😀 So nVidia should have a driver update soon if not already. My only problem is with the next to last level where u escape from the interrogation room. i go through all that to freeze after Hudson hits me….. ive done it 6 times trying different things and none work. ok so i run in that room, Hudson grabs and hits me, the the little cut scene with Reznov happens, the Hudsons pointing the gun me, he says a sentence, he flinches and has an ak47 and sunglasses, flinches again and has the pistol again. The subtitles keep going but everything elso stops.

    @Jan What OS do you use? If you use XP try this:
    set the hexadecimal value to 18000000

    Try at your own risk though. This is still an experimental fix.

    My game freezes almost everytime when its “loading”. It doesnt matter if im in “Campaign Mode” or “Zombie Mode”. When the mission change or the map or the map is reload, it freeze. So, i must do the Alt+Tab or open the Task Manager and close the game. Will try with the compatibility mode at game.exe properties. Just in case, any other suggestion?

    Just bought the game, single player would not start, would just go through first few cut scenes and then black screen. Launched Multiplayer, then exited. Copied config_mp.cfg, renamed to config_sp.cfg, restarted the game and it worked just fine.

    “THe procedure entry point SteamAPI_RestartAppIfNecessary coulf not be located in the dynamic link libraby steam_api.dll

    I have recently got a copy and installed it.
    Was able to. Yet, when I try to run the game from my desktop icon, that error comes-up. I downloaded a “Crack” for it. And still coming up with the same thing. Hope somebody would be able to get back on me with this.

    I’ve got a game-rig so don’t worry about the specs.
    I’m sure that it should run on it.

    I’d appreciate all the help that I can get.

    Here’s a fix that worked for me–an uncommon one that, if needed, is the ONLY fix that DID work. Bought Win 7 Ultimate 32 bit. Installed, and everything worked fine–WITHOUT having to use special drivers! Including the mobo chipset drivers. And that was the problem with ONLY Black Ops! Of course I read everything there was available, and even tried the hair-brained ideas submitted by ppl who wanted to help, but had not done any research.
    Well, to get to the point, all I did as a last thing, having all the other “try this–” suggestions exhausted, was to install the latest mobo drivers from my Mfgr., which of course replaced those of Microsoft. Even the original mobo disk would have been more appropriate for my system. Which has been upgraded from a core 2Duo to a Quad core q9650, and from 2 GTX260SSC in SLI, to 2 GTX560Ti in SLI. Finally, since the beginning of Win 7, and then Black Ops–I have no more crashes!
    This may not be YOUR solution, but it was for me. If Win 7 made you think that you could do without the hardware drivers for the mobo–well, I was mistaken! Good luck on your particular issues. But don’t neglect these facts, as I had. 😉

    Hi there!

    I also had problem with black screen. After playing from 2-10min the screen would go black and nothing could be done expect boot. After checking all the solutions found on the net (nothing worked), I realized that this might be a case of graphics card over heating. Opened my computer and found about 0.5 cm of dust everywhere 🙂 The graphics cards fan was totally covered in dust. I blew most of the dust of with a canned air, tried black ops… played about 2 hours with out problems!
    My graphics card still shows high temperatures (I’ll better do a proper clean up later, completely removing and cleaning graphics card’s fan), but it seems that the over heating was the issue here.

    Hope this helps some of you!
