Sounds like your computer has an integrated video card and the game is looking for an extended graphics card. This type of card plugs into the motherboard via the AGP, PCI, or PCIE slots. Depending on the type of video card and computer, you may need to upgrade the power supply when you put the card in. If this is a laptop there is no good way to upgrade the video card.
It is referring to the capabilities of your video subsystem. Check your motherboard manual if you are using an on-board video controller or the documentation for your add-in video card to see if it supports this feature. If it doesn't, you will need to buy a video card that supports it in order to play the game.
I figure you are using he onboard VGA with your motherboard. Looking through the BIOS Setup for it, I don't see where it allocates a block of your RAM for use by the video (as a lot of MB's do). All you an do is set the frame size from 1mb to 8mb, max. I suspect the chipset is allocating RAM for the video on the fly.
Regardless, if you want good video performance, you should consider going to a separate video adapter, preferably one that is PCI Express, with a minimum of 256mb of RAM. This takes the load of video processing off the motherboard, and places it on a dedicated GPU, using its' own memory. The Nvidia chipset is popular and well-supported, but most any name brand will do the trick. Shoot for one with PC Express, and as much RAM on it as you can afford.
