Looks like you need the appropriate video drivers Easiest way to try to find it is by going to this website http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and letting the microsoft website autodetect it for you.

If this doesn't work then you'll need to find out the manufacturer of your video card and the model number Then go to that manufacturer's website and download and install the appropriate driver
