If the games aren't starting up at all, try and update them, or type the issue you're experiencing into Google.

If they're running too slow, reduce the graphics quality within settings. If that still doesn't work, look for the minimum specification on the packaging or search Google for it. Games with good graphics will require faster, more expensive graphics cards. You should be able to get your computer upgraded by just about any computer shop, or a friend may be able to do it.

I dont have graphics card now so i cant play some big games

You won't be able to play bigs games, Usually with the games, it comes with a system min requirement and the min direct x version need to play those games. If you do not meet the min requirement, then you cannot play that game, and you will need not just to upgrade the video card but maybe mem, cpu and direct x to meet the min requirement.

I didnt upgrade my wii and now some games dont work how do i fix this

you should upgrade the Wii when it says too or when you get a game that does not work, the Wii is like a computer, it need "add on's to run properly.

also make sure that you have the proper memory cards, the wii does not like some cards and wont play games if you have them.

Graphics card will not support games that were introduced after 2004

It's likely that you'll need to upgrade your graphics card. I ran into a similar problem with my older Dell system. You might want to see what graphics card is recommended for the game or games your attempting to run on your system.

Need graphic card upgrade for Dell Dimension 4500 w/ pixel shader

This is an older machine that has a 4x AGP port for graphics cards. The good news is that cards for this slot are cheap...usually in the 30-50 dollar range. The downside is that you wont get the greatest performance out of them. I would recommend going with a Geforce FX 5200.
