Did you follow the suggestion supplied by MS?
System manufacturer and model?
Go Start/Run...type msinfo32 and hit Enter.
What data is reflected for System Manufacturer and System Model?
Scroll down to Components/Display. Same question for Name, Adapter Type, and Adapter Description.

You did well with the graphics, thanks .
I don't game, so don't take any of this as coming from someone who really knows .
The message from Microsoft says...that your onboard video chip isn't sufficiently powerful enough to handle game requirements.
Game requirements call for DirectX version 9 and you probably have an earlier version.
DirectX version 9 has been out for awhile...if I were you, I'd try installing DirectX 9 from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en.
FWIW: A system with XP on it that's not running DirectX 9...is probably missing a number of updates. A quick glance indicates XP SP2, which means that you probably short about 80 critical updates to help protect your system from known security vulnerabilities. I would say that a visit to Windows Update would be of some use.
