Fix already tried -
Fix 1. Disabled phone modem under "Device Manager". Modem that i have installed is called "PCI SoftV92 Modem"
Fix 2. Right click the exe file, click on tab named Compatibility, check the "Run this program in compatibility mode with" box and then select "Windows XP Service Pack 2"
Problem with Fix 2. - I don't get the option of Windown Service Pack 2 option. I only have got 4 options there which are as follows. Windows 95, Windows 98/ME, Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 5) & Windows 2000
Fix 3. Start > Control Panel > Sound Right Click on the default playback device (e.g. Speakers) and click properties. From there select the Advanced tab. To eliminate this error the default playback format must be set at 24 bit 48000Hz (Studio Quality).
problem with Fix 3. - I do not have option called Sound. I only have got option of Sound & audio devices. And, there isn't anything called properties. Just advanced tab which gives you option for hardware accelaration & sample rate conversion quality. Tried setting it to basic however issue still persist.
Fix 4. deleted all accounts and the .txt file in the 'C:\ Users\ Username\ AppData\ Local\ Activision\ CoDWaW\ players' folder.
I then deleted the file 'Treyarch.bik' in the folder 'C:\ Program Files\ Activision\ Call of Duty - World at War\ main\ video'
Problem with Fix 4. - Couldn't locate aboesaid folder i.e. users\username. Did try deleting the file "treyarch.bik" but to no avail
Fix 5. The trick is to insert your DVD or mount your .iso file and navigate to [DVD Drive]:\Setup\Data\zone\english
This folder contains all of the fastfiles for each level in the game, these are vital for loading. Sometimes, the installed files can get corrupted, so the best plan of action is to Copy and Paste them all from the DVD folder into the installation folder.
Fix 5. status - Replaced all files from DVD still didn't work
Posting all fixes as it may be helpful to someone else facing same issue. Unfortunately none of the fixes worked for me. Any other bright sugegstions please?
Is it safe to post Hijack this & CPU Z logs? I was thinking of posting well in advance but thought it would be better to seek advise from Mods first.
