I dont know if i am doing it wrong.. i am new on this site so sorry

At present i cant play ANY game.
so i have an intel core i3-2100 CPU with 3.10 GHz
4 gb of ram and 32 bit system. How ever i dont think i have a video card or if i do have it, its pretty basic. even while opening the applications like spider solitaire it flashes a warning "hardware acceleration is turned off or is not supported by your video card"
looking through the display info, i got this:
name: standard VGA graphics adapter
adapter type: not available
adapter ram: not available
installed drivers: not available
color planes: not available
color table entries: not available
resolution: not available

i dont know what to make out of this.. i seriously have no technical knowledge.
i have a resolution of 1366x768.

i want a card that can support games coming in the next years, but a medium to low setting will do. i dont necessarily want high setting (i guess that needs a more costly card)

please help me, and suggest ways i can make my PC compatible for gaming. it would be a GREAT help.. and if you can explain things in detail it would be really really awesome.

That sounds like a laptop. There's nothing you can do. You're stuck with Intel graphics.

Somethings that would help, model number of the computer.

Do you know if the video driver was loaded?

What Operating System?

Go to Run and type in dxdiag, look under the display tab and it should tell you what kind of video you have.

What country do you live in and your budget in local money, some countries have different prices for the same video cards.
