Intel® 82865G Graphics Controller [Display adapter]

Looks like onboard video. You need a video card to play Call of Duty 2. An ATi Radeon 9800XT and up or a nVIDIA GeForce FX 5900XT and up should be fine.

Intel® 82865G Graphics Controller is onboard graphics.

Onboard graphics is simply not up to the job of running modern games, you need to upgrade your graphics card.

Looking at the Specifications of your Dell Dimension 3000, it appears that it doesn't have an AGP slot so upgrading the graphics is next to impossible. You would have to get a PCI graphics card not PCI Express (PCI-E) just normally PCI.
