Question

Chances are pretty good that your video card drivers are out of date, were not installed properly, or are designed for use with some other graphics card or operating system.  Hence, the message.  Go to the manufacturer of your card (not the manufacurer of your computer) and download updated drivers that match your card and operating system.  See https://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Graphics-cards/ta-p/700073#Section_.1.5

" Go to the manufacturer of your card (not the manufacurer of your computer) "

 

If you have a Dell or Alienware computer, you will want to get the drivers from Dell's site.

If your GPU is on the motherboard, get the drivers from the computer manufacturer's site.

Otherwise, for descreet cards, get the universal drivers from the GPU manufacturer; not the card manufacturer.  As in if you have a PNY Gefore 550, get the drivers from nVidia rather than PNY.

Your on-board Graphics Subsystem is very below par for running anything related to 3D Graphics:

If your PC is a tower and has the other minimun sized components then a Graphics Card upgrade may be in order.

Below is a link to the most common Graphics Cards available and their market price. IMHO any nVidia GeForce card is better than what you have now. You want the highest rated performing GC you can afford.

Use that link to see the complete list of common GCs.
