    Are you using an on-board graphics? Try to update your driver first. Use the driver CD included with your PC if you have it.

    You will have to invest in an upgrade to your computer. Probably power supply, then graphics card, and memory.

    Or simply play games your current configuration can handle.

    Or perhaps it is time to get a new computer... or a nice used one.
