Go to

Start/run
type in dxdiag and click ok

Run all the tests in this window
and click save all info button at the bottom

post the info here

all tests should run successfully, tell me if they don't

also tell me what is enabled and what is disabled under direct x features

and finally as I am not sure if its added to the all info report, copy paste any info in the notes box.

the latest graphics drivers can be obtained from your PC maker's download site. You can also get it from intel, but you are better off getting it from the above.


Be aware that this is an integrated graphic solution and the performance for this game is limited--

Call of Duty 2 CANNOT be played with onboard graphics, which is what you have. You need to purchase an AGP Graphics card that is DirectX 9.0c compatible, which means you need to get AT LEAST a Nvidia GeForce FX Series graphics card or higher.

* DirectX* encountered an unrecoverable error
* Does not support alpha blending
* No valid rendering code path detected

Intel is not aware of a fix or workaround for this issue. Contact the game manufacturer † for further updates, patches or support.


CALL OF DUTY 2 SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Minimum Requirements

1, 4 GHz Prozessor (Celeron / Duron)

512 MB RAM

ATi Radeon 9200 / GeForce 4

1 GB RAM

ATi Radeon 9800XT / GeForce FX 5900


Oppps beaten to the punch
