I decided to try out Windows 7 build 7057 after I read numerous reports of the integrated card x3100 working very well on Windows 7.

I use XP Pro normally for my casual gaming (like CoD4) but I figured if I could get a performance increase and a better os to boot - then why not?

I installed it fine, and then installed CoD4. I cannot find any servers in multiplayer. I've searched all of the web and come up with things like: check the port forwarding on your router, check your firewall settings, etc. One suggested trying the console command /connect to manually connect to an IP and came up with "your ping is too high" and "server timed out/disconnected".

That makes a lot of sense. However, even with the firewall off and the ports forwarded, I still can't connect.

Twist is, my brother is a casual gamer as well and decided to give the same build a whirl (x64 as well) and dual booted his HP laptop. He has had no problems whatsoever, and we were using the same internet connection at the time.

I debated posting this in a CoD4 forum, but I felt that maybe since I was using a Macbook and Boot Camp that it would be better suited here.

Ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Proud Macbook owner.

The problem probably lies in Windows 7. While it may work on the HP laptop, there is no guarantee that it will work on another PC and even more so on a Mac. You would be best to downgrade back to XP Pro.

Okay, thanks.

Just wondering if there was some hope.

I backed up my XP with winclone, so I'll probably just revert back.

Thanx.

I got Windows 7 through MS when they released it to the public which I believe was build 7000. I'm pretty sure that was the only build of Windows 7 that was released to the public.
