This issue occurs if the video card installed in the Computer doesn't meet the video requirements to play the game. You can visit the Computer's manufacturer website to check for any updated driver for the video card installed in the Computer.

Hi there, Assuming you don't have a PCI-Express graphics card installed (which would need to be identified if so), then you can get Intel GPU drivers by clicking here.

Your drivers may be correctly installed already. If the game you are trying to play requires a version of DirectX or other graphics rendering system which your integrated Intel display adaptor does not support, then it will often tell you that you have no supported display device/adaptor, which could be misleading. However, a new driver may add new feature support which may get you going.
Try the Intel driver above, if this does not work you may need to install a supported PCI-E graphics card for the game(s) you're trying to run but please reply with any further information.

The problem is that your card sounds terrible. Either it is extremely old and outdated (in which case get a new one such as the minimum spec requirements on the box), you only have two options. The first is to take the game back, or the second is to buy a new computer or video card that supports the minimum requirements.
It sounds to me like you are using the on-board graphics port, my advice would be to purchase a new graphics card, anything not under 512MB as most of today's games require 512MB as minimum.

Good luck

The game you are trying to play does not support your graphics card or ther is a problem
with your graphics driver. To be sure, try uninstalling the graphics driver and then
reinstall it again. Then try to run your game again.
Also make sure that your antivirus is not blocking the games

Runtime error

There might be a problem with your graphic card or the game you are playing that your graphic card can not support. or you might have to uninstall the game you are trying to play and install the game again.. most likely it will be the graphic card not supporting the game.

hope that helped.
