Modern Warfare 2 players are experiencing an endless Scan & Repair loop that leaves them unable to play the game, and our quick guide might be able to help you out.
Any launch of an online multiplayer game is likely to have one or two teething problems that can hinder the ability to play the game, and Modern Warfare 2 users are experiencing this thanks to Scan & Repair issues on PC.
The Scan & Repair process is a method that allows the hardware to self-assess itself and look for errors that could damage and prevent the system from working efficiently, or at all.
Although this is a convenient method for solving internal problems, Call of Duty players are forced into a perpetual loop of Scan & Repair tests for Modern Warfare 2 on PC.
Modern Warfare 2 Scan and Fix problems on PC solution
According to Twitter account Paradox Customs, a specialist in PC, PC Parts and PC Optimization, they found that by going into the game’s settings and disabling Parallax Effects might be the way forward.
The user has fully presented the details and the instructions are quite simple to follow:
- Fire up Modern Warfare 2.
- Go to the main game ‘Settings’.
- Choose ‘Interface’.
- Now go to where it says “Parallax Effects” and change it to ‘OFF’.
- You should hopefully no longer experience the Scan and Repair problems on PC.
We should note that Paradox Customs prefaced their method by saying, “This isn’t 100% effective, but it’s working for us so far!”
So it is by no means a guarantee that it will work for you, but it is a possible solution for the time being until something more permanent is discovered.
As always, if in doubt, you can always try uninstalling and reinstalling the game as well to see if a reboot magically fixes the problem as well.
We hope the solution managed to solve the problem for you, and if you want more Modern Warfare 2 guides and content, then we have a lot more below:
