Default Monitor not displaying game

Hi ,

I just got Call of Duty 5, installed it , went to play but my monitor is not displaing the game,. I can hear the audio of the game but can't see anything. Any idea what setting or something I have to change in order to play video games. I have a brand new computer so it should be able to play this game. Please help.

Thanks in advance,

Dan

Most likely sounds like a video card driver issue, COD5 is a recent game, what drivers do you have installed?

And could you please list your system specs?

he probaly doesnt even have a video card. Maybe an intergrated one. Since he said it is new he might have just bought one. Like a dell or something

You know what? It is a video card issue. The computer I bought has an inboard card (ATI Radeon 2100) which is only 128 mb, COD5 has a minimun system requirement of 256 mb. I need to upgrade the graphics card, which I will.

Thanks guys,

Dan
