    The graphics card was designed for workstations not gaming and may not be compatible with your game. Try installing the most recent supported driver for your card and see if that helps.

    BTW, this isn't a Windows operating system question. Wrong forum.

    Try the Nvidia website.

    It would help if you'd post your system specs. Use this software to see what processor / mobo / RAM / graphics card you have.
