Your Display Properties box has an Advanced button. Clicking that button should open up the Advanced Display Properties box. If you have an Nvidia display then the Troubleshooting tab will have a Hardware Acceleration slider that you can turn off. If you have an ATI display then it might be under a different tab. Turning that off should solve your problem.

When i am playing the game of igi project destop

That means that the video card in your computer does not have hardware acceleration, does not have it turned on, or lacks the proper video drivers to use the hardware acceleration.
Upgrading the video drivers is one thing to try.
Upgrading your DirectX version is a second.

MY DELL NETWORK adapter doesnt work anymore on my dell laptop i cant connect to the internet, im using my brothers laptop to ask this question!

Reinstall the driver for it. You should be able to get it from dell. If it still doesn't work there may be a hardware problem.
