im having the alpha blending problem ive read quite a few ppl have. Im taking my graphics card isnt compatible.
Its a SiS 661 in an Aspire SA85. If you need any other info ill try and find it. Also wondering if im able to put in a new graphics card, because ive been reading ppl need to buy new motherboards to put one in. If i can, do you have any recommendation on which one to buy?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

To update drivers i would first recomend createing a system restore point

To do this got to Start / All Programs / Accsessories / System Tools / System Restore

Then select create a restore point
Hit Next then type a description like "Just in Case"
Then click create, it will then say its been created and just click close

Now for updateing driver

Go to start then RightClick on My Computer and select properties

Then a little window should appear

From the Tabs at the top select hardware and then device manager

Now an even bigger window will appear with lots of expandable options

Look for Display Adapters

Your graphics card name should then come up

Double click on it and yet another window will apear

From the Tabs at the top of this window select Driver

Then select Update Driver

For the connect to windows update screen that will come up i recomend selecting no or yes this once as it will unlikley find one there

Then click next and select install automatically and next again

It will now search the web for a driver if there is a later version for your graphics card

If there is one it will download and install for you and tell you to restart your pc

(if this has caused more problems use system restore to go back to the point we made)

If there isnt one it will just say keep this driver

Hope all this helps!! :whistling:

your video card is not supported by COD2. IF you have a AGP slot available in your pc, then you might be able to find a cheap, but decent video card that is able to play it.

Please note, that if you interested in building a new system that you should post

No problem :whistling:

You can also use that to update any other driver if you need to in the future
