Call of Duty 4 crashed my system

Q: Call of Duty 4 crashed my system

reposting from CoD4 forums.

So, I installed CoD4 a couple hours ago, and heres what happened.....

Everything worked fine. I logged in, played multiplayer some. I ranked up the 3rd time (forget rank) and when I did, the game froze.

I alt-tabbed, ended the process, and rebooted. Again I log in to multiplayer, and play another 90 min or so, with no problems.

After exiting out, I went to grab lunch. Came back, and nothing would respond on my comp. USB - mouse and keyboard were unresponsive.

I held my power button down to shut the comp off (only way) and heres where the fun started.

Logging back in, no error screens or messages or anything. It seemes to take a long time to boot up, 2-3x the normal start-up time. I get back into Windows (XP Media Center) and everything seels fine. Until I try to click something, anything.....

I try to start CoD4, and nothing happens. I try to start WoW, and nothing happens. I try to click the start button, and again, nothing happens. Ctrl+Alt+Del does nothing, and by now, I can only move my mouse. Clicking and keyboard use has no effect.

Again, I power off. This time, I get a pretty blue screen, telling me one of my disks needs to be checked for consistancy. Fine, Ive had this before after crashes in the past, no big deal.

CHKDSK file verification completed.
CHKDSK indexes ...... freezes at 4% completed. I walked away for 15 min, and came back, still @ 4%.

Uh Oh

Hold power button down again, to reboot in safe mode....

The file list starts scrolling by, and then it freezes.......on


5 min later, its still sitting on this file, or the one following it, I'm not sure.

Preferred Solution: Call of Duty 4 crashed my system

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I was playing CoDUO one day and tried to play a map which would not load because the game was reading the wrong files. I decided it was a great itea(at the time) to just go and delete all of my call of CoD/CoDUO files without uninstalling either first. After deleteing all files(or what I thought was all files) I tried to reinstall both games. When I insert the CD, the main title screen opens and gives me the options to play in single/multiplayer, or uninstall. if I click on uninstall, the uninstall wizard starts to open, then goes away with no affect. I found a post here on how to possible delete Cod and CoDUO from my computer, that post is here: http://forums.techguy.org/games/472741-uninstall-call-duty-help.html . I have followed the steps given by colmaca but to no success. I have tried searching in all hidden/non-hidden and all indexed/non-indexed places on all my drives to find anything related to Call of Duty, and get nothing. Is there anything else I should try? Please help, I would like to get back to my 'clan' on CoDUO

Hello everyone. I want to thank the two people that helped my with my Call of Duty installation problem. It worked and I got Call of Duty to run. But now I have another problem, with my Call of Duty United Offensive game. Everytime I have tried to install it I get the same message: "Another version of this product is already installed. Installation of this version cannot continue. To configure or remove the existing version of this product, use Add/Remove Programs on the Control Panal. {A662E280-64A8-4CF5-8407-D0808602B3}" I have went through and deleted everything that had to do with Call of Duty United Offensive (I even uninstalled the CoD: UO SP demo) and I even went through the Registry Edit and deleted the file {A662E280-64A8-4CF5-8407-D0808602B3} under LOCAL MACHINE, SOFTWARE, Microsoft, Windows, CurrentVersion, Uninstall. But now I am stuck. I have tried everything I can think of to install it. Does anyone else know of any way I could possibly install it?

well i just bought the said game, i run x2 7950gx2 (so 4 cards essentially) ive never ever had a problem with running sli on any game until i installed this game. i get to play for about 5mins and then it all freezes up and i have to hard reboot. i have tried older drivers and many different card settings and i still get the same freeze, it doesnt happen in any particular place either its just random.
i have managed to temp fix this by turning off SLi and just running off the 1 card, it works but id still rather have the 25-30% performance increase ofc.
anyway system specs as standard..

AMD 4200 dual core processor 2.21gig
2GB OCZ gaming RAM
n-force 4 mobo sli ready
nvidia 7950gx2 running quad sli
1000w something or other PSU
soundblaster se+ audigy

A:call of duty 5 SLI

Firstly, be more specific on the PSU. A something or other doesnt give alot of info and power s the root cause of an awful lot of problems. You need to specify so we can see if its got enough power in the first place ( which I assume it has as it wouldnt have SLId in the first place) and whether it is liable to probs.
Secondly, it sounds like you have a bad card. I suggest you take both cards out, then install one on its own and run COD for a while. If its fine, take the crd out and install the second one as primary( just one in the rig at a time) and do the same. I am fairly sure you will get a bluey on one of the cards, and this will be the faulty one.

Basically Whenever I join a game I get kicked by Punkbuster with errors such as "loosing key packets". In game modes such as Free for all I can play for a bit then get kicked by these messages, however then I play search and destroy, I get the connection interrupted symbol after every round without fail.

Also when spectating the game seems to play in slo motion almost. Furthermore, if I manage to play in a game for a bit, the game starts jolting about every 5 second ever so slightly (not lag).

I might also mention that I have a decent spec PC with ran this game fine about a year ago online with no problems. (I had wireless internet then).

Currently I am Running Windows 7, I have a high speed cable internet which works fine when downloading etc.. (which i'm not doing when playing COD), I supposedly have the latest version of Punkbuster, I have tried turning the firewall on and off. I basically have no idea whats wrong and would appreciate any help. Thanks.

If you are using a wired connection you should check the Ethernet cable running to you computer from your router for damage, as well as the connectors. If the insulation on the wires is pulled out of the connector, it can cause the connector to pull on the wires. Best thing to do is try a spare cable if you have one. Also if the wire runs near any electrical appliances or wires, this can cause interference (white noise on the wire). If there is no damage to any of the Ethernet cables you should get a line test done (www.dslreports.com). This will check the line quality from your isp to your home, if there are lost packets or other problems you may have to call your isp for them to fix the lines.

Hey there, right now I've reinstalled Call of Duty 4 LEGIT from my BOUGHT copy of the game. I played a bit of single player while I downloaded the patches then installed 1.0-1.6 then 1.6-1.7 patch and went on MP.
Then I loaded a server and it said "impure client. invalid .iwd files referenced." and I was like ''

i googled my problem and some people seem to have this problem when they download a torrented version of the game. Mine is 100% legit and I myself am against torrenting as it is totally ruining PC and multiplayer gaming.

Does anyone know the real routes of this problem and where I can fix it, or even better, link me to a iw_08.iwd file I can download, because that's the one that is being linked in my install directory in the error.

I've got a rather odd issue I have only seen a couple of people have, but no fixes.
I have been having problems playing both COD4 and CODWAW (5). The game runs fine, but every so often, after I've shut the game down, rebooted, or what have you, the game will not give me video once the maps load for me. Here's what happens (to the best of my ability to explain)

I play a few maps, typically 2-3 before I get tired of it. I shut the game down, and proceed to do something else.
I then load COD up later on, and attempt to join a server.
The map loads 100%, I see "Waiting for Players" at the top, I get a blip of sound, and then my G15 LCD counts off 5 seconds, then my computer screen goes black and I have to hard reset my computer. Edit: When the screen goes back, it acts like there's no video feedback from the videocard. While this would point to an issue with the video specifically - why would deleting the profile fix the issue? Unless maybe there's an issue witht he AA settings or something?

I had originally thought it was my videocard drivers, but I've had 4 different driver versions on this computer to try and fix this issue - to no avail. The only thing that I have found that fixes this issue, is if I delete my entire profile (with exception of my mpdata), and recreate it. That will fix it - usually.

I am unsure what keeps causing my profiles to go corrupt so often. It's gotta be something with the way Vista handles folders/files that I have set, and I just don'... Read more

I have a very clean and ordinarily stable Windows XP SP3 system--recently underwent a complete reinstall of Windows and analysis of the system by a professional. It is an Athlon 64x2 Dual 4400+ with 2 gigs of ram and running a Geforce 7800 GTX with very recent drivers.

I cannot seem to run Call of Duty II without the frame rate slowing to a crawl on occasion. This generally occurs when the action gets hot and heavy and my character is in danger of being killed. The mouse only responds raggedly and with great latency. Usually this will last a couple of moments and then resolve itself. I can then play normally till it happens again which may be right away or may take five ten minutes before the slowing begins again.

With this set up I should be able to play CODII (and I'm thinking of expansion packs) easily.

Anyone have any ideas what is causing the problem?

Could be a variaty of issues.
CoD has some definite hardware requirements to run correctly. Verify that you meet or exceed these.
Update your drivers including sound.
If your friend is running the game with all the bells & whistles in his video card settings on try toning them down.
Limit applications running in the background.
Scrub your harddrive of junk (adware/spyware etc.)

I purchased Call of Duty because my brother talked so highly of it, when he played it at his friendís house. I told him that I will install the game on my computer when I get back from work, and told him not to install the game by himself. But my dumb little brother could not wait for me to come home. So he installed the game by himself. He told me he didnít have problems installing the game, but he knew I would be very upset at him for installing the game on my computer. So he decided to delete (uninstall) the game before I came home. But he did not know how to do this properly. This is exactly how he deleted the COD files.

1st he went to -start-programs-COD folder-deleted it.
2nd he went to -drive c-program folder- COD folder- deleted it.
3RD he went to -trash bin and empted the trash bin.
4th he went to -control panel- remove software- and removed the remaining call of duty folder/files.

As you can see he did everything wrong? I cant recover those deleted files. Now my pc is slow, hard drive has decreased from 60% free space to 45%free space, I tried to use disk clean up but it seems to not be working (the calculating bar does not move). I decided to put in the COD cd in, to see if can reinstall and play it, but when I put it in it showed that the game is already installed and I could start playing it. The problem is it wonít let me play the game or multiplayer at all. So I concluded the Call of Duty file is still in my computer, b... Read more

I bought COD4 for PC through the Internet. Guess what? It didnt work, with screenwords (and the notice on the box which I hadnít read, buying through the Internet) indicating a better video card needed. So, as well as buying the game, I bought a GeForce7600GS, nearly quadrupling the game cost. Guess what? Still won't work.

This time: "Error during initialization. Miles sound system initialisation failed." and "Initialising Renderer. Attempt 44hz (Windows default) sound. ERROR: Couldn't initialize digital driver: DirectSoundCreate() failed, in get_system_speaker_configuration()"

I can see several suggestions online that "In the Activision folder, select Call of Duty 4. Open your Miles Folder. Look for the Mssmp3.asi file Rename it to Mssmp3.bak" That made no difference.

I have Direct 9.0c and checked that my Soundblaster Live!Value (WDM) needs no newer driver than 2/11/01. As above, GeForce7600GS and new driver. Other details are Dell Dimension 4500 Intel Pentium 4 2.53GHz, XP Service pack 2.

Do I now have to buy a new sound card as well? COD1 & 2 work fine. Can anyone help?
