have you tried this:
Question The game crashes or freezes while I am playing. Answer Make sure your system meets the minimum system requirements of the game.
Make sure you have the latest video and sound card drivers from the manufacturers' websites.
Set your desktop to a resolution of 800x600, 32 bit True Color. 1) Right-click on your desktop and select Properties. 2) Click the Settings tab. 3) Set your screen area to 800x600. 4) Set the colors to 32 Bit (True Color). Under Windows NT this will be listed as 65554 colors. 5) Click Apply and OK.
All background applications must be shutdown prior to running the game.
Turn the hardware acceleration for your sound card to Basic. 1) Click the Start button > Settings > Control Panel. 2) Double-click on the Multimedia icon. 3) Select the Audio tab. 4) Click on the Advanced Properties button in the Playback section. 5) Click on the Performance tab. 6) Reduce the Hardware acceleration to Basic, the 2nd notch from the left. 7) Click Apply and then OK 2 times. Run the game now. Don't forget to turn the acceleration back up to restore the high-end features for your sound card when using other applications.

i tried doing what u said putting it to basic for sound but it still crashes :confused:
Wow, I just did a search for that error message and it seems lots of people are having it. Take a look at these 2 examples:
After reading through several dozen posts, you might try creating another user account for yourself in Windows XP and then log on with that account to see if it fixes the problem.
The next thing is to suspect maybe a hardware problem. Do a memory test using the tool at http://www.memtest86.com to see if its a memory problem.
GLAZIER I AM HAVING THIS SAME PROBLEM. wHAT EXACTLY HAPPENS IS THAT YOU GET IN THE GAME, IF YOU join spectater the game will not crash, but if you join one of the teams or auto-asign it crashes. I've tried your suggestions on all the other forums about this problem and they have not seemed to work. And on this memjory site you listed, which file do we download.
Glanzer also another good thing to know is that every time i reinstall the game it will work one time. Then after i shut down call of duty and open it up again it will start crashing. Hopefully this will help you get a solution.

OK, now that is weird. Never heard of that before. Have you checked your system for spyware and viruses?
