Default Hardware Accelaration Error

I tried to run a game on vista and received the following error

What can I do about this..?
I tried following these steps but no help it doesn't really let me change anything...?

Rightclick the Windows desktop and choose Personalize.
Click "Display Settings".
In the Display Settings dialog box, click "Advanced Settings..."
On the resulting dialog box, click the "Troubleshoot" tab.
Click "Change Settings"
You'll probably see a User Account Control message box asking for permission to continue. Click "Continue"
On the resulting Display Adapter Troubleshooter dialog box, move the slider one notch to the left.
Click OK as many times as needed/close any windows that opened along the way, and return to the Windows desktop.

What game are you trying to run?

What graphics card do you have or are you using onboard graphics?
