Call of Duty: MW2 Won't Play (New Computer)

I recently got a new gaming desktop that runs 64-bit windows ultimate. It has a 3.3ghz x6 amd processor, 8gb ddr, and a AMD Radeon 6970 2gb. I think those would be the most important specs in order to come up with a resolution.

Ok, here's my problem. When ever I try to play Call of Duty: MW2 Multiplayer (it runs single player just fine) it shows the cover picture for about a second and then the screen turns black like the game is coming up. Instead of loading the game, all that happens is the resolution turns to 800x400 and a mouse pointer appears in the middle of the screen. I have to alt-tab-del > task manager in order to close out of it. Here's something interesting that I noticed when viewing the process in task manager. It shows the process as, "iw4mp.exe *32" I'm not sure, but i think maybe the *32 indicates 32-bit? As if it's a 32-bit game and could have a problem with my 64-bit os? I don't know, just an observation. By the way, it shows the game as "Not responding" when i go to task manager and it never loads, i left it on that black screen for like 10mins once.

Anyway, if anyone has any advice, tips, or needs additional info, I'll be checking this thread.


Well, its been a few days and no one has addressed my issue. I tried playing it on my old laptop that runs vista and it works well. Its just i would rather play it on my new computer.
