Hey guys Ive just installed a game and I dunno where else to turn.

It says that Direct3D has failed to initialize and when I run a "dx diag" it says that Direct3D acceleration is unavailable and in the notes it says

The system is using the generic video driver. Please install video driver provided by the hardware manufacturer.
To test DirectDraw functionality, click the "Test DirectDraw" button above.
Direct3D functionality not available. You should verify that the driver is a final version from the hardware manufacturer.

Im running on a Toshiba A10 so does anybody know what Im supposed to do. Am I ssupposed to install somethng else or is my computer simply too ****?

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Ahh :/
I dont even know. Im perfectly competent when it comes to using computers for what I usually need it for but Ive no idea how to even find out what sort of graphics card I require. Ive foudn out Im running the windows provided driver though which is apparently really limited functionality.
