Fix

This means that you have to upgrade your graphics card SOFTWARE.  Not the graphics card!

Operating Systems and Drivers

You may find that you need to install Legacy drivers, depending on the model of your graphics card and your computer. Note that some specific models of graphics cards older than 2006 have issues with Windows Seven. If you have issues, jump onto the manufacturer's site, and download the Legacy drivers. I should have a list of drivers and cards that are not compatible with Windows Seven shortly.

Although this is an old topic

Although this is an old topic I will solve it for you and lock the thread.

It means your graphic card cannot run the game, simple.
