    Have you updated the game with the latest patch (1.3)? That may fix the issue. Re-installing the game may help the issue.

    What video card does your iBook have: ATi Radeon 9200 or 9550? I thought I read somewhere that the 9200 doesn't have enough features (probably shaders) to properly render the game. That is probably why it doesn't support CoreImage either.

    I would think that your iBook's video card just isn't quite powerful enough to render everything at once. Maybe if you drop to the lowest resolution and settings it may fix your problem. Call of Duty 2 is definitely pushing your iBook to its max! I'd suggest upgrading your ram, as 512mb is not that much, and your computer's performance will be a lot better with more ram in games and in general. Hope that helps! Oh ya, also make sure you have the absolute latest patch/version of the game as that may also help.

    Click the Apple icon in the top left hand corner and select "About this Mac" You can then click "More Info," which will open up system profiles. Listed under Graphics and Displays you should be able to find what video card you have.

    Unfortunately the video card is soldered onto the logic board of the system and can not be replaced or upgraded. Whatever you have, your stuck with.

    call of duty 23 requires an ati 9600 vid card. a 9200 isn't powerful enough
