I just reinstalled mw4 and i'm having problems. I start up the game and i get a window. Then i get this:

80004005 - WINERR_Unspecified error ) - CreateSoundBuffer(0x1718218: DSBCAPS_CTRL3D ,(PCM 16-bit, 1 channel.

The game of course doesn't run. I never had these problems when i ran the game on windows 2000. anyway, here's my system info

Dell optiplex GX240
387 mb ram
1.80 ghz pentium 4 processor
ATI All in-wonder Radeon 9600 128mb (This is new, just got it on sunday)
Windows XP professional

any help is appreciated.

Maybe a bad install? Try reinstalling it. Also, Do an update for all drivers if you haven't done it yet.
Try to run it under compatibility mode. Also, check under ATI's know driver issues, maybe there's something there. There should'nt be any problems running mech4 under winxp. As a last resort, check the sound drivers. See if that helps. Good luck man!
