Your video card appears to be missing one or more features required to run Call of Duty.

You should install the latest drivers for your video card, being sure to uninstall the old drivers first. If you already have the latest drivers, you should completely uninstall the drivers and then reinstall them. This fixes most problems. If the game still doesn’t work, it may be that your video card does not have the minimum features required. Please check the readme for more information, including a list of supported video cards.

i’ve installed the latest drivers but didnt work. please help me!
