It means you need to update your drivers go to nvidia website and download the right driver and install it. It could also mean that you have to upgrade your graphics card completly and buy a new one. Try downloading the latest drivers first.

The drivers are the software that your computer uses so it knows how to use a piece of hardware. You need to download these from the nvidia site. What OS are you using (such as windows 98, xp, vista, mac, linux). If you tell me what Os your using I can easily find the drivers for you. Or, if you go here http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp . Just click graphics drivers (the top option) and then fill out the rest.
