Chances are your graphic card cannot support the game you are trying to play. Your desktop has an intel integrated graphic card.

Goto this link and enter your service tag, and it will locate the latest drivers for your system.

hi khubani, thanks for that tried that but the driver listed is in fact older than the version i got?

That's to be expected, most manufacturers list drivers and do not frequently keep them updated. Try running Windows update via Start->Windows Update, or through your system's Control Panel, under Start->Settings->Control Panel->Windows Update. If at all, Windows may be able to find a later version for your drivers. If Windows Update fails to find your drives, you may already have the latest drivers to be installed.

If you would like to continue, you could goto Start->Run->DxDiag. Once you enter that, click on the "Display" tab and check if it identifies your graphic card in a more detailed manner. If so, you can google the drivers for that card, or goto their website.

For example, if it was an ATI Card, you would goto
If it was NVIDIA, you would goto
So and so forth! Good luck.
