21. Modern Warfare 3 and DirectX encountered an unrecoverable error

  1. Right click on the desktop and choose "Preferences"
  2. Select the "Options" tab
  3. Click on the "Advanced" button
  4. Choose the "Troubleshooting" tab
  5. Lower the "Hardware acceleration" bar to "None"
  6. Untick the selection box for "Activate combine writing"
  7. Press "OK" and restart the computer

What the process is doing after this;  is that DXDIAG is setting the DXDIAG settings to null.
Now do the same process again as told above, all the 7 steps.

When you have restarted the computer for the second time, now you shouldn't have any problems.

or....

Try downloading and installing DirectX 9.0c on your PC. It will not affect your DirectX 10/11, but it may assist with your issue as it installs DirectX files you may have.

or...

In Steam Games Library/right-click game/Properties/General/Set Launch Options/ put in -dx9 and that will make the game run in a more-compatible DirectX 9 mode. 

20. ClientRegistry.blob

How to reset the ClientRegistry.blob when needed?

Certain Steam issues may be corrected by renaming the ClientRegistry.blob and restarting Steam.

Windows XP/Vista/7

  • Completely exit from the Steam client.
  • Go to C:Program FilesSteam (or the Steam directory that was specified during installation).
  • Locate ClientRegistry.blob and rename this file to ClientRegistryOld.blob.
  • Restart Steam to allow the file to be recreated.

17. Getting LAG when playing MP Modern Warfare 3 ?

Turn off the theater recording option in the video options. Lag gone.  

16. Mouse works in single player but not in MW3 multiplayer.

  1. So far a full re-install of Windows is only known option to fix this.  Back up data and format before re-installing.

15. Can't connect to a Modern Warfare 3 Server.

Keeps you hanging in connecting till you get the server connection timed out message. Crossfire or SLI related. Turning multiGpu from 1 to 0 fixes problem. And you do this in this file:  C:|Program Files|Steam|steamapps|common|call of duty modernwarfare 3|players2| config_mp.cfg.

14. Connecting to online services  + CoD Modern Warfare 3 server is not available at this time.

Apparently there are many problems with Orange Broadband and Netgear routers. If this is the case for you then update to the newest firmware. Once this is done log back onto your router and go to ADSL settings and change the multiplexing method to LLC-BASED and change the DSL Mode to ADSL2+. You can ask Orange for their latest router/modem.

Video shows Modern Warfare 3 Lag & Hit Registry

TIP : Play on the MW3 dedicated servers. Fixes everything and it works flawlessly. Only issue is you can't rank up. Just create a private match class and you can use it in the dedicated servers.

You can't find those dedicated MW3 servers ?  

You must enable the server browser first !  Load up MW3 Options -> Dedicated Server -> Enable Server Browser.

If you keep on getting lag check our Solutions for MW3 errors, crashes and install problems page.
