    I am running a machine with following;
    -AMD 2.2GHZ 3500 processor
    -1GIG ram
    -ATI Radeon xpress 200m (with 128mb dedicated memory)
    -WinXP SP2

    I have trouble running games that have requirements that are much less than what my computer has. For example Call of Duty 2, it is not playable unless i turn down all the graphics, and even then the graphics skip sometimes. Come to think of it i cannot play any DirectX 9 game. I have tried to remove spyware and stuff, but it didn't work. My graphics card supports Directx 9 100%

    If you have any suggestions please help!

    Do you have the latest drivers for your video card?

    You should also be somewhat careful playing games, since laptops (I assume you have a laptop since it's running a Radeon Express card) were not really designed for gaming. WHen you play, make sure there's enough space under and around the laptop for the cooling fans and vents to get access to cool air, otherwise it will heat up very quickly.

    My Driver is updated, and the game still doesn't work. My computer has no problem playing F.E.A.R and Halflife2. But cant play Call of Duty 2 when using directx 9, nor can i play Chronicles of Riddick.
