RAM: 3.0GB
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 9300 GS
Video RAM: 1.5GB
Hardware T&L : YES
Pixel Shader version: 4.0
Vertex Shader Version: 4.0
Sound card: pass

As others have said, that is your problem. You will need a graphics card upgrade.

Agree with the other posters, you need a better card, even low end gaming card like HD5670 or GT240 is MUCH better than 9300GS. :)
