    Hi vanessa
    In short it means that the game is looking for a dedicated graphics adapter that the game needs as a minimum to run. the inspiron1501 dell has an integrated graphics chipset, and a very weak one at that. it's not something that you will be able to fix. the 1501 does not have an option for a dedicated graphics solution, sorry.
