CoD4 startup crash

Just installed Call of Duty 4 on new laptop and it crashes as soon as I try to start it. I get the following error message, any ideas?

"Error during initialization:
Create 2DTexture( $floatz, 1024, 768, 0,114 ) failed: 8876086c = Invalid call"

Have reinstalled the game and updated Directx. Tried to update video card drivers but can't find them on or anywhere else.

PC Specs:

Dell XPS M1730 on Windows Vista Home Premium
Intel Core 2 Extreme CPU X7900 2.80GHz
Dual NVIDIA GeForce Go 8700M GT
4GB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM
320GB (7200rpm) SATA RAID 0 Stripe
Ageia PhysX Processing Unit Card

Any help very much appreciated!
CoD4 apparently has really dodgy compatibility issues with some video cards.

Have you searched around on google with the error code you get?

ye but how much did you pay :D
Just make the laptop with the specs he listed and you have the price lol :D

Aaaah painfull

I looked for drivers but they dont even have fucking drivers for the 7 series :X
