You're still far from me. My computer has a horrible Radeon X300 card, that runs every game but counter-strike badly. It sucks. I'm pretty sure it cane be updated. Also, the amount of RAM may affect the gameplay.

laptops mostly can not be upgraded video card wise, and that's why when you buy a game, you have to check to see if it'll work on mobile versions of the chipsets listed, most games are not designed or recommended for a laptop.
from what I see, WYSIWYG. no upgradability for video. you have the A210-162, and the only other A210 is the A210-11P, totally different mobo, and has a different video chipset, sorry.

you'll need a normal pc to enjoy the games properly.

if yours is only got 2x 512 megs of ram, that's barely enough to run vista poorly leaving little for the dynamically shared video ram, putting 2 1 gig sticks in(pulling your 512's) should bump the shared memory up from 128 to

ATI Radeon™ X1200 128-319MB dynamically allocated


that will make a huge difference running in lamer settings with newer games and should really help vista

don't expect a lot from cod4

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
