Ok guys, i've run call of duty without error pretty much since its release. A few days ago i decided to upgrade my computer for Doom 3/HL2 etc.. etc... The specs are as follows: MSI K8N neo platinum 64bit motherboard AMD 3000+ CPU ATI 9800 pro video card 1 gig of ram 120 gig raptor hardrive Running XP-Pro etc.. etc.. Ok, so right after setting up my new PC, i installed CoD as, and joined a random MP game to test out the system. It ran beautifully, until about 10 minutes into the game. Every 5-10 minutes my entire game freezes (lasting roughly 5 seconds) and then quickly throws me back into action just as quickly as it began. This happens frequently/regularly and is hell during matches. When i check the cg_lagometer as this happens (After the game freeze finishes) the usually flat green bar has a huge space in it, followed by a vertical red line in both the ping/video sections of the lagometer. (The top and the bottom spike completely) As i said, this happens roughly every 5-10 minutes, and only began after i installed CoD on my new computer. So what do i need to do to stop this, and/or what is the problem here? I'm planning on installing new Vid drivers in the near future, but i have doubts as to how much that will help. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks

I have read about this problem on other COD forums,and it seems to be a problem with the N'force3 chipset on the Neo platinum m/board,but if this post is anything to go by,MSI are working on the problem. http://www.punksbusted.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=9417&hl=cod+freezing
