Hi, welcome to TSF

What make/model is your graphics card? If it's onboard, what make/model is the motherboard? You can find these details with PC Wizard.

Are you using the latest graphics driver? Are your chipset drivers and DirectX up to date?

Does your graphics card support OpenGL? Has the game ever worked before on this computer?

The chipset drivers can be found on your motherboard CD, or you can download from the motherboard manufacturer's website.

Try CPU-Z to identify your motherboard.
