The simple answer is because you are playing a rather modern game on a computer that is not provisioned for playing modern high-end games.It looks like this model of computer includes an integrated Intel graphics chip with only 128 MB at the most. Intel integrated graphics chips are notorious for not being very good with games (unless the game si 5 years old or more). To play modern games, you need a computer with a discrete graphics adapter, and bare minimum 5000 MB to 1 or more GB of memory on the graphics card. Higher end systems might have several GB of on-card memory (it's been a while since I have checked).
For the requirement of the game in question you will need up-gradation of the PC hardware to suit the requirement of the game. Hence unless this is done you will not get support for the game which requires this configuration. Get estimate and see if the PC's processor/memory will support this upgrade. Take opinion before you buy and install or take a trial.
Yes I see that your computer is not powerful enough to play games currently. This can be achieved by installing a Graphics card. A PCI-E graphics card should do the trick. If you want to play simple games then you could go for a small graphics card. However if you want to play the latest games then you will need a very large graphics card and a new processor. Maybe a Core2Duo and an ENGT240 for example.
Visit a computer store and have a look around. Talk to them about upgrading your computer.

Do your PC support the above hardware requirements?
The most common input no support would be your graphic card is not up to the mark to play the PC games.
Is your graphics card drivers up to date to the latest?
Have you updated your DirectX to the latest version?
Sounds like your Graphics are just not powerfull enough.
If your graphics are built into your motherboard, there may be updated drivers on the support page.
If you have a descrete graphics card, just pop over to there web page and get the latest drivers.
If you have a laptop, you cant upgrade your driver unless there is a better driver on there web page.
If you have a desktop pc you can buy a new card that would play most games for about £40 or less
The Graphic adapter is nVidia GeForce G105M, the dedicated video memory is 512 MB. The games you are playing require 512 MB minimum!!! This means the the graphics card cannot handle the games you are playing because they are really made for a desktop PC. The only way around this is to lower the resolution of the game so its not using the high end settings. It won't look as good but at least you will be able to play them. If you are a gamer i recommend you think about a gamers desktop computer as they are built for that.
You can try running the game, hitting alt+tab to get back to your desktop. Right click on your desktop and hit properties. In the display properties window hit the settings tab and move color quality to 32 bit. If this doesnt fix it then your Graphics card isnt powerfull enough. PS In windows XP you need to make sure that you have another program running besides your game so that you can alt tab.
