if u want ur computer faster... usualy reformat it or delte some stuff u dont need or dont use
but since urs makes a funny sound... proly ur soundcard isnt good or ur speakers and stuff .. try switching speakers n see if the same problem is there
capsule
try a fresh reinstall or check the official webpage for call of duty and look up the FAQ or help section n download latest patches n whatever.

Streetbawler91
i dunno wut to tell u but shouldnt this be in like technology? some one move it i dont have that type of power yet sad.gif
ikayto
hmmmmmmmmm if it freezes then it could be because ur cpu is overheating or that ur power supply isnt strong enough, try unplugging like ur cddrive then try playing it........or maybe you need a new grpahic card..the possibilities are endless but those are the most common........OR YUO HAVE A VIRUS........iono ;p
MeanBastard
Its not freezing, it has wierd sounds. Most likely your fans are clogging up with dust.

yea u probally need to clean ur fans .... haha i have 5 fans cuz of neon light =/

i don't want to even bother checking.. its so depressing...

Intel PIII processor
434 MHz
256 MB of RAM
around 60 gig total

and i don't know about your noise or game probs, sorry
Just_Dream
All I can say is that's some nice arse computer! MAYBE because the game's so old.. that you might have good speakers and hear all the bad mumbo jumbo sounds from the game cause it's old... I mean, old games have bad graphics too. idk what game that you said is though.

Now your systems fault? The game is either messed up or you got a virus attached to the game. Scan the system.

i have no clue at all sry biggrin.gif
butre
C2Q Q6600 @ 4.2 GHz
Radeon HD 5850
X-Fi Fatal1ty
4 Gb DDR2
600w PSU

I only beat the OP by a little.

Holy Jesus. never seen a processor reach 4 ghz. well once actually.
butre
They don't go that high stock. You have to have some good cooling to hit those speeds while still having a decent temp.
Maccabee
is cooling the only thing that holds back those speeds?
butre
No. Voltage and TDP hold you back too. My CPU uses like 125w stock, and it uses 156 at it's current speed. stock is like 1.2v, I've got mine at 1.5v, but I could probably get away with 1.4-1.45v. 1.4v is where you start rapidly degrading the life of your CPU.

Edit:

Overclocking is pretty complicated, there is a lot that goes into it.

The world record is with a Pentium 4 at 8.1 GHz. He used 1.9v, I don't know what kind of wattage his cpu took.
Maccabee
did he use dry ice? or liquid nitrogen?
butre
Liquid helium, I think. And he still burnt it up within 20 minutes.
