U need a v-card that support shader model 3.
If this is a laptop then u are done. List the system specs.

"Please make sure you have direct 9.0c graphics adapter!! "

Graphics Adapter is the key term. That refers to your video card, not software.

Do you understand the difference between hardware & software? A video card is hardware, in other words, it's a physical piece of electronics equipment. Here is an example of a video card:

The info you provided doesn't include any info about your video card. If the model number listed is your motherboard, it uses Intel Extreme2 Graphics which is an integrated graphics processor (IGP), not a video card. And when it comes to gaming, the Extreme2 absolutely sucks. If you want to play games with that machine, you will need to buy & install an actual video card. It appears the board has an AGP slot:

There's slim pickins in AGP cards unless you're willing to spend a lot. Here's a Geforce 6200 for $33:

It's not a great card, but it's MUCH better than the Extreme2. And if you use the coupon code GEEKBERT, you'll get 10% off.

Which game is it that you're trying to play? Are the system requirements listed on the side of the box?
