It seems to me that there are two possibilities. The first being that you may not have the latest display driver, you should check that and update if necessary. The second is that you are trying to play a game at a resolution that your card cannot handle, in which case you need to look at the game specification and compare it to the spec for your card to see if it is suitable for that game.
