You've already answered the question. You're using onboard graphics; onboard graphics are not supported.

Gateway has no information on "P5ws5".

Can you find it and throw up a link? Gateway Official Site: Notebooks, Laptops, Desktops, All-in-Ones, Displays, Monitors, Accessories

I'm at the Gateway site scratching my head. The only video drivers listed for the 6520G are provided by Intel. Huh? http://support.gateway.com/us/en/pro...1&modelId=3009

You know... you should be able to run CoD. I know they say they don't support onboard graphics, but yours meets or exceeds every requirement they have. I can't think of a reason why you shouldn't be able to play it?

If I were you I'd find the latest set of graphics drivers. Usually this is no problem, but I can't seem to find anything for you, not at the gateway site and not at AMD.com.

Where and when did you get this machine?
