Did you instal new drivers?Error message tells you clearly that drivers are not installed properly.

Just write in google Intel ® 82915 G / GV/ 910Gl + drivers and sure you will find a website to download last drivers for your card. Or just go to intel website and search for it. I don't know your OS adn if you have laptop or PC, so I can't search it for you. Here is the link http://downloadcenter.intel.com

That's not a graphics card, it's an old Intel chipset with integrated video and it's highly unlikely you'll be able to improve the performance in Second Life by updating the driver. If this is a desktop, you may be able to add a discrete graphics card with at least 512MB memory but to do so will undoubtedly mean upgrading the PSU as well to power it. If it is a laptop, there's nothing you can do but get a new laptop with a decent discrete graphics card.

Congratulations, you have the infamous and rather worthless GMA 900. This chip is so slow that honestly I'd recommend you don't even bother looking for drivers and just buy a used $10 graphics card which will be about 100 times faster. Yes, I am being serious.

Your best bet would be to get a Nvidia gforce 9800. They retail for about 75-100 USD. I got mine on sale at Best Buy for $75. The improvement over the 6800 that came with my system was unbelievable. Very easy to install and will improve your overall internet experience as well as SL.
