That chipset doesn't support DirectX 8, I believe. You can upgrade to a DX9 capable card for $75 or less. You can find GeForce FX 5200 cards for less than $50.

Try here:

BTW, what game are you trying to play, and what are the specs of your computer (memory, processor and speed, etc.). With an old graphics chipset like that, your computer may have other hardware issues besides the graphics.
