  1. Here's a few things you could try:

    Close all background programs such as Antivirus and FRAPRS, etc.
    Try again.

    1-Resinstall your Videocard drivers with the latest version available and install the latest COD4 Patch.
    2-Try the game

    3-Resintall the game
    4-Try the game

    5-Perform a ScanDisk
    6-Perform a VirusScan/Spyware Scan/etc.

    7-Try and disable your RealTek Network card (or other devices that might be causing this).

    8-Reinstall your Videocard drivers but perform a CleanDriver Registry before you reinstall them.

    ***If buy now, if you have the same problem, it might be hardware related***

    Then I would have to know if you problem only occurs with COD4 or with other games as well.

    I'll assume you have a legit copy of COD4.
  2. yeah i have a legit copy of cod 4

    and it does happen in other games. and on startup before my winodows xp loads it says hard disk not formatted or something like that

    and on the occasion wen im playing a game, the game crashes and a screen with a blue backround comes up with a page worth of writing but it doesnt stay long enough for me to read it.

    please help

    ps. can someone give me the steps on how do enable realtek mixer for XP-pro , i read sumwhere this stops the crashing thanks

    pss. how do i disable mt realtek network card?
  3. Disabling your network card.

    Option A: Bottom right of windows screen where you have your mini-icon (Time and Date). You can right click and disable the device from there.

    Option B: If option A fails then you can go in your Control Panel - Systems - Device manager - and disable from there.

    Further troubleshooting would be

    -Disable and Unplug your Wireless device (if that's what you have).
    -Uninstall your network card drivers and take out the card before your next boot.
