It says that because it refuses to run in software mode. You must install your video drivers.

Read the other messages on this group. Everyone says the same thing.

Each video card has its own drivers and each driver for each video card is made for a specific OS.

the major manufacturers are www.nvidia.com (http://www.nvidia.com) <-- has a all-in-one driver www.ati.com (http://www.ati.com) www.matrox.com (http://www.matrox.com)

They have drivers for each video chip and for each OS including XP, Linux, etc.

Go into control panel->system
and check out the name for your card. Maybe that will help.
