  1. hello i am asking if anyone one knows what may be wrong!

    my system should be able to run it fine? but!

    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6850 @ 3.00GHz (2 CPUs)
    Memory: 4 gigs
    Hard Drive:500 GB
    Video Card:NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT

    But i play single player, and i can put everything on high and it runs great, but then when i go to multiplayer, it works like crap, i have to put everything on low, and it lags so badly? i have no idea what to do? anyone have any ideas?

    Take a look in the Device Manager and see if there are any yellow symbols under Network Adapters. If so, you will have to reinstall the driver.

    hey i did what you told me 2, but there is no yellow symbols. but would it hurt to install the network adapters again anyway just in case? like where would i find the network adapters?

    Usually CoD4 causes problems with its anti cheat system PunkBuster. It uses 2 with similar names and your firewall may possibly cause 1 or the other too be blocked causing the choppy game play. If your using a router try port forwarding it. can help with that.
    Norton Antivirus and Sound Blaster Live software can also conflict and cause choppy game play, so they may need un-intstalling.

    Hope that helps.
