Wow omg... even I can see where this guy went wrong.... obviously being that the test says your graphics card isnt powerful enough and doesnt have some of the features required, YOU NEED TO GET A NEW GRAPHICS CARD.

Supposively yes, but I'm not sure that the card you speak of is 100% DirectX 9.0c combatable... (it claims 9.0 combatability, but 9.0c is different) in which case you may experience more problems. The FX series don't work with many games which require high pixel shader versions... I would suggest something in the 6 series... if you give me a price range of what ur willing to spend i could suggest some cards. Also, I am assuming that you have an AGP slot, being that the FX 5200 is for AGP.

hiya, my name is martin, ive been reading around and you have helped a bunch of people and was wondering if you could perhaps help me as well. Im on a strict time contraint (14days) and would HIGHLY appreciate any help. I have the same alpha blending error; ive inserted a belarc read out. My question is, will a nvidia geforce fx 5200 run call of duty two atleast halfway decent? this is my music recording pc and im not playing on keeping the game on here for long. ive read that it WOULD play it but from online reviews and stuff but was wondering if you or anyone you know has tried playing cod with this card and how good it does it. thank you VERY MUCH.

I would get a little bit faster than a fx5200. I havnt used a fx5200 and I herd people that used some on call of duty 2. The gameplay would be choppy if you tried to turn up the settings and it would play on low detail with the eyecandy off.

What is your graphics interface? Do you have an agp slot or are you stuck with regular pci. The belarc doesnt tell me anything about your expansion slots.

Im building a studio and blah blah everythings a mess, i just need some entertainment until i set up my recording studio with good sound and a good visual set up for recording and gaming. ive found the fx 5200 on ebay for under 30 bucks new. i wouldnt want a blow a fortune on a card that im hardly going to use. i only have two comp games, call of duty one and now two. thats it. not a hardcore gamer really. so what do you guys think? something from the 6 series? or would the 5200 do it ok? really appreciate this guys!!!!!

Ok hi im new just been reading around on this cod2 thing. Ok now it does the same thing to me with the alpha blending thing. Now what i'm wondering is I have a laptop with a normal intel chipset i think its 910 gml or something like that and I have 128 mb video memory. Now is there like any kind of drivers I can instal that I can get it to work? It says I dont have the Pixel Shader Ver. 1.1 or the vertex shader ver. 1.1 either, any drivers for that also?

You can try updating your direct x to the latest 9.0c

Integrated Intel video chipsets wont work with call of duty 2.

sorry, if your using a laptop none of it is compatable with a desktop. You will have to work with your mom on what can be done to upgrade her computer.

laptops are propritary for the most part. you could add your hdd with a usb adaptor. You might be able to add memory to the laptop. Just to many variables here.

personally There isn't much you can do. trying to do what you suggested would either result in lost data or at least a voided warranty if not 2 dead laptops. Yes this is a worsce case scenerio but I don't think your mom would like you killing her laptop.
