Hello D3Z and welcome to Geeks to go!

Your main specs are:

1.73GHz Intel® Centrino Processor
1GB RAM
128MB (SHARED) Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900

The graphics card isn't supported by the game. You could try updating your graphics card drivers just in case.

XP drivers

2000 drivers

Hi, I just bought Call of Duty 2 today and I am having the same alpha blending problem. I have a Dell Inspiron 1150 notebook with the Intel graphics controller. I've been told that a graphics card cannot be replaced in a laptop. If my graphics card isn't supported, am I just SOL?

Intel graphics will not support gaming. period. certainly not any games optimized for dx9. Hope you have an agp slot so you can upgrade your video.

Updating your graphics card drivers was a long shot anyway.
Your going to have to upgrade your graphics card, for COD 2 I would recommend nothing less than the Geforce 6800 series or ATI's equivalent.

Hello Fred Savage and welcome to Geeks to go!

Your correct in saying you can't upgrade graphics cards in laptops. Basically if you want to play games you need to buy a desktop PC.

Hello koolmruz and welome to Geeks to go!

I've looked at the specs for your PC on the Dell website and it appears that your PC doesn't have an AGP slot. The lack of an AGP slot makes it almost impossible to upgrade your graphics card.

The only graphics cards open to you are normal PCI (not PCI-X. PCI-E or PCI-express) cards. PCI cards are very slow by todays standards so it's more than likely any PCI card wouldn't be fast enough to give you decent speed in COD2.

Hey Zeus, you seem to know a lot in regards to COD 2 and graphicsl. I am unable to run the demo due to the alpha bending on the graphics card or driver and hence understand I need to get a graphics card but I am not sure if I have an AGP or PCIE slot in my machine. Are you able to tell from the given specs in the same way you did for Koolmrus guy?

Thanks, any assistance is appreciated.

Hello Flogger and welcome to Geeks to go!

To be able to help you i'll need to know more about your PC.
Can you download and install Belarc Advisor.
Run it and it will analyse your PC and display a report, can you then either paste the log or attach it to your post.
