The mentioned Rendering Path makes me think it's a problem with the video card.

The best way to check your video card (as far as I know) is to right click My Computer --> Hardware --> Device Manager and the video card should be under "Display Adapters".

So let us know the video card and we'll try and help! :whistling:

That is most definantly integrated graphics which WILL NOT run CoD 2. You will have to do some mobo research to see what connection type you have and buy a new video card.

(And if it's not integrated...it's so terrible it can't run it)

This integrated video card is indeed the whole problem, you need to get a better video card. We have had alot of people with your same issue wanting to play cod2 on intel integrated graphics... :whistling: Its just not gonna ever happen. Integrated isnt meant for gaming anyways.


List us a budget and tell us if you have agp or pci express. Not really enough information for me to find out.

What exactly do you mean????? The 7000 series is a good card but your 7000 series is a low end card.

Do you mean choppy gameplay?

the video card in your signature says its a 7300LE. The LE is a lighter version of the 7300gs. If you want to be able to play games nicely your going to have to spend $175-$200 minumum on up to $500 for a good video card.


Im not trying to make you mad but you said you wanted an answer, that video card is really slow and its not considered a gaming pc with that video card. If you spend $200 -$500 on a video card then it will be a gaming pc..

256mb dont mean jack if the rest of the card is slow. Just because it has 256mb doesnt mean its fast man, it doesnt work like that. There is much more to a graphics card. It has a gpu (graphics processing unit), it has clock speed it has memory speed, it has pipelines, they have memory which will be ddr,ddr2 or ddr3. Yours has the plain ddr..
