I've read through many of your topics, and have finally located my problem at being a onboard graphics card. Not having a non-intergrated card seems to be the reason why I can't run it. My question here is if there is anyway for me to run it without that, and if not, can I upgrade my machine to handle another card? Here is my machine off Belarc (Also gotten off this site).

Your system doesnt have an available agp slot or pci express slot of course which sucks.

Your only option is to put in a regular pci video card.

Make shure you have atleast one available pci slot on your motherboard because the info you posted doesnt tell me anything about your slots.


This is the fastest regular pci slot video card there is available and is really your ONLY option unless you build a brand new gaming pc.

Thank you, I am not sure how to show you if I have a available slot or not. That card is fine to me, I don't run anything to hard, and call of duty 2 is the hardest thing I've ran by a long shot.

Thanks.
