Excellent post Ross! 2 Kudos for you. (haha, ok this isn't MySpace)
Well first off, you have DirectX 10 with Vista, but your video card is
not DirectX 10 compatible, but with Call of Duty 2 that shouldn't
matter, game only runs at DirectX 9.
Why is your graphics memory so high? It's not too powerful a video card
and the more memory you give to your video card just takes away from
your system RAM. If you know how, lower your video ram to 256meg or even
128meg I don't think you'll notice a difference.
Crud, I don't have your original post, I honestly forget what you were
having problems with.
Oh, Lee just posted you need to install DirectX 9, well you can download
it, or you can go to your game CD, open it up, and look for a DirectX or
DXSETUP folder. Run DXSETUP.EXE and it'll check to make sure your
DirectX files are OK. No need to download.
If you have other games running then that may be all you need.
otherwise, go to intel.com and find drivers for the Intel 965 Express
notebook chipset and the Intel x3100 video card. Install their latest
and that should help as well.
