The most common problem shall be that your system might not meet the minimum requirements that the game needs...If you are sure that the requirements are met then you shall try to get another fresh copy of it as this may be corrupted.....If the minimum requirements are not met you can emulate the graphics that is needed for the game using 3D analyser....
Pixel and vertex shaders are operations the video card may be capable of, sometimes the hardware is capable but the driver or directx are old and don't support this features. Check if your video card has pixel shading by looking at its specs in the manufacturer site, if it is update drivers if it is not you're out of luck. Though it is possible to do do shading by software, if this operation is not hardware accelerated makes the rendering very expensive time wise an thus slow.
This means your video card is either too weak or that it does not have the proper drivers installed on it. Either way update your card's drivers, it always a good thing to do. If it still doesn't work, get a new video card.
You get this error because your graphic-card (architecture) is too old to run the game. To run the game you need a graphic-card which supports at least pixel shader 3.0, whil your card "only" has 2.1.
In case you're sure your card supports pixel shader 3.0, you'll need to update the graphic driver and/or DirectX (component of Windows) to the latest version(s) and try again.
If you're not sure wether your card support pixel shaders 3.0, you can post the brand, name and type of your graphic card here and I'll reply. When the card doesn't support 3.0, there is no other solution than simply buying a newer card (or don't play the game).
