I3 sandybridge acer all in one

ok so my problem is this... i have an acer i3 all in one (specs later in post)

well it was bought from a pawn shop and had a virus on it, so i factory restored it... now it starts giving me issues about how my graphics card is not supported (pretty much every game does it, including WoW) only thing is that it DIDNT do this before i restored it, same story with skyrim, fable 3, etc... if anyone knows why it is doing this now please help me out

PS could having a 32g flash for pagefile have done anything?
