I bought a brand new dell inspiron 1318 last month. It has 3G of RAM. 288G hard drive. Stock video and sound cards i believe. Running Vista on it now. I just bought call of duty 4 for PC and it installed fine. The intro and main menu works fine. once you get to the actual game play however, it lags like there is no tomorrow. I updated my drivers and still no luck. Please tell me what my options are.

it may be due to the onboard graphics.
these may be too little, for the game to operate.
check the game requirements at the back of its pack and see if your pc is compatible.
i have done this many times and i believe this is the problem. But arent the graphics cards attached to the motherboard and unable to be updated? what are 3d accelerator cards and am i able to just put one in my laptop? would this work?
u can still update it. and dont know the second part. soz

so its possible to still update the grahics card even though its bassically a part of the computer already?
