    You are getting that message because the Video Chip that is in your laptop is not powerful enough to run COD4. There is really no way to upgrade the chip, so you are in essence, stuck.

    Sorry

  4. Did you try uninstalling and then reinstalling the game?

    That will no do anything.

    Let me sum this up.

    The 7000m will not run the game. It is a very weak chip.

    There is no way to upgrade the card.

    No. You are stuck with what you have.
