Ok i have played single player without a single problem. All settings totally on max at 1920x1200 without even 1 slowdown... Everything runs completely smooth. The menu for singleplayer is fast and responsive as well. HOWEVER.. when i go to the multiplayer menu IT LAGS so badly. like mouse speed is lagy, button response is lagy. Then i joined a game and STILL lagy as ****...

i have patch 1.4 from here:;9287438;/fileinfo.html

i loaded it and i thought it would fix the problem but no such luck... i have no idea what to do or what the problem is

Please help me

A guess: A weird interaction between anti virus, and punkbuster.

I used to have a problem with call of duty 4 too, it would play fine and then randomly freeze in game for no apparent reason. what solved the problem for me was exiting out of rivatuner and atitool. apparently, some other people were having the same problem and that worked for them too. i hope it works for you. it really pissed me off since cod4 is amazing but its just so frustrating to crash so much.

There was something similar in COD2. If you checked the "Dual Card" box or whatever, you would actually see a performance boost even if you just had a single card. Granted it was only a few FPS, but it could mean the difference between the M1 firing like a sub-gun or a bolt action.
