    If you let people know your system specs, they may be able to make some analysis.

    I dont think the 7000m has all that is needed for COD4 to play.

    You can verify this by visiting this url:

    Select COD4 and it will test your system to see if you have the minimum hardware requirements for this and many other games.

    I had the same problem, update drivers or you should buy a new videocard maybe the Nvidia Geforce 8 series, because almost every game that is coming out for Computer needs alot of RAM and a good Videocard, and Vista isn't the ideal gaming software, I got Vista too but I updated RAM and Videocard and everything works fine,

    Good Luck

    Is it a legit (or 'bought') copy of the game, or is it a pirated copy? If it's pirated, we will not offer support on it, but if it's bought, you are ok.

    What exactly does Punkbuster say/do?

    You should run the game smoothly because you have a nice videocard and plenty of RAM you say.
    , but can you show more of your specs?
    You should check the Cod 4 menu go to options and then locate Punkbuster enable it or disable it(COd 4 Multiplayer probably won't run if you disable it because every server is PUnkbuster enabled), (Punkbuster is a anti-cheat program) or maybe you don't have Punkbuster Installed, when you downloaded Cod 4 did it say you wanted to download Punkbuster because when I installed it , a pop up came up saying I had to download Punkbuster so I did.
    Go to canirunit.com to make sure you're Computer can run the game.

    Good Luck
    p.s.I have had problems with the 64-bit
