View Full Version : Help...!!! CoD4 Issue. Hit brick wall for many hours!!

03-15-08, 08:15 AM
Ok i got my new rig setup and running. Sadly my net capped half way through the updates, so i managed to get all the XP/Drivers updated. I got some kinda intel chipset driver form intels site..it ran...didn't see anything installing...but the issue i have atm is with CoD4.

I have a 7950GX2, i ran CS Source/VST / HL2 EP2 and i see gains across them all, i also see it in CoD4..the problem is that when eva i move forward or shoot..the FPS hits rock bottom..then when i stop....boom sky rockets up again....When i unload a clip..fps goes from 200s to 30..when it reloads..it goes upto 200+/etc...when i move forward..it starts slowing down...

I have the Steam version of CoD4. I didn't have this issue before in my old rig..i am not sure what it the problem is..but i have a strange feeling its the onboard sound drivers..it has to be some kinda driver related issue...

I have tried,

-Different Drivers for nvidia & Audio. Currently forceware 169.91 (very nice drivers Quadro)

-Thought it was the G15 Keyboard...no luck changed it/etc.

-Thought it was heat related somewhere...across everything it is fine...and nice and low...

-I am atm trying to google for a -no sound input line to maybe try get cod4 to load with no sound...

-Disable SLI/etc....nothing.

It is very strange..i love the game..and i want to play it, i can see really big improvements to the FPS just from the upgrade but still keeping my old GPU ><

I have attached a picture maybe that might help..



Gigabyte GA-X38-DQ6
2GB DDR2-800 Corsare (4-4-4-12)
CoD4 is on the 500GB Partition Seagate 7200.11
E6850 (3Ghz) + 9700NT Zalman.

No overclocking.

PLEASE help...

As you can see...first shot...195fps..then shoot...fps kaput...

This has to be some kinda driver issue...or something..and its driving me insane lol.

Hmm..just installed Crysis. No updates still 1.0 (patch is too big for capped net speed to download.

First level island starting area..i am sitting arround 50fps~ all medium cept for textures/etc all high...when i move the mouse arround..it still says 40-50..but it moves like...4-10 fps..

Is there some setting that is changing the way mouse works? I remember reading it somewhere..ages ago....

Ok this is just very strange...

I went into a corner...and press/hold W (i cant go anywhere) and my FPS drops to 37....when i let go...it starts going back to 120~...

WTF?! -.-....

Well i tried alot of things. I even tried disabling most of the USB Ports and trying PS2 to get the game running...in the end nothing worked and i have pretty much given up...man really wanted to play cod4 on the new pc since its alot smoother...as long as nothing is moving in the dam screen...

I am not sure what is going on...

Does anyone know how to disable the sound in CoD4? When i disable sound completely and try running cod4 the game crashes.

It seems when eva i shoot like for example with the r700...and then he reloads the next bullet...i get a small sound stutter and a huge fps drop...this is why i think it could be just something related to the sound driver/realtek hd driver...this is so frustrating aaarg -.-

Problem fixed. It seem putting it on the second PCI-E fixed it...

Wow it even put my VST now nearly 300FPS...thats doubled from my old A64 3700 lol...

Which was 142FPS~ and on pci-e 1 it gave me 270...on the second slot 300FPS
