So im not sure if i can run the newest COD, so i ran a test to check my CPU. I have an Intel Centrino Duo T2300 Processor. When i go into my device manager, it shows two seperate processors, rated at 1.66ghz. now, when i run the test, the results are only showing 1.66ghz, instead of 3.22. Is the test just telling me the processor speed of ONE, or is my other processor not working??

And also, would my combined CPU speed be 3.22 or something else?

If you have a multi-core processor, which you do, the device manager will list the multiple cores as separate processors. Both cores have 1.66GHz., and the device manager will list two CPU's as such. I have a Core 2 Quad 9450 and my device manager lists four CPU's.

Are you talking about Call of Duty: World at War? If so a 3GHz single core processor is suggested (or an Athlon 3200+ or higher), which you don't have. You have a 1.6GHz Dual Core processor. When determining the speed of the processor in a multicore system, the clock speeds are not added. Your CPU, a Centrino Dual Core, has 1.6GHz in each core. That is the maximum clock speed of your processor, 1.6GHz not 3.22GHz. You may be able to run the game, but it will be very slow on that Centrino processor.

HERE is a handy little website where you can find out if your computer can run certain games. Once you've installed the required download you can choose which game you are curious about and it will test your computer and let you know the results.. :thumbsup:

I just tryed it again today, and still the same thing. My firewall is off, all pop-up blockers and anti-virus programs are off as well.

Are you using a laptop? Some laptop chipsets are unusual and could throw that application into chaos.
