Hi Everybody,

I know this has been covered over and over but i'm rubbish with computers and literally bought a new computer just to run Call of Duty 2 because the first one was so immense. I have all the necessary specs and a ATI Radeon x300 video card which is compatible with the game but I still get the 'This video card does not support alpha blending' message when I try to run the game.

I've downloaded the newest directx 9.0 drivers, a microsoft update and been to ATI's site and think i downloaded the correct driver (Catalyst 6.1 Windows XP) but I still get the error message.

:tazz: PLEASE HELP A TECHNOPHOBE IN DISTRESS!! :)

Hello ross69 and welcome to G2G!

Are all your other drivers up to date?
Did you uninstall the existing drivers before you installed the new ones?
Have you tried reinstalling the game?

Thanks very much,

I'll try re-installing tonight.

I bought the pc reconditioned so it prob hasn't got updated drivers for other hardware. which ones would need to be done? Thing is that pc won't be connected to the net for a week and I've installed the other drivers by dowloading them onto a flash drive and then copying them back onto my pc. A major pain in the [bleep] I can assure you so ideally I only want to dowload the necessaries for COD and sort out everything else when the broadband scumbags finally drag their slow butts to my house.

Motherboard drivers, sound drivers and graphics card drivers should be updated.
