I'm thinking Guitar Hero 3, it's the only game I can think of that can be referred to as that.

Never seen it, what are the system requirements?? should be written on the box

Found them

Minimum

CPU Processor: Intel Pentium D (Dual Core) 2.8GHZ or AMD Athlon 64 3500+
Memory: XP - 1 GB RAM, Vista – 2GB RAM
Hard Disk Space: 5.1 GB + 1GB Swap File
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card
Video Card: 3D Hardware Accelerator Card Required – 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible 128 MB Video Memory
Video Card (ATI): Radeon X800

256 MB 3D Hardware Accelerator Card

Processor is your problem by the looks of those specs, and you don't say what graphics card you have but i'd hazard a guess that it's not up to it either.

The processor is alright, I'm guessing it's the video card that's messing it up.

EDIT - Yep, it's the graphics card. Integrated graphics just isn't going to cut it.
