unable to create direct 3d device

  digf 10:31 29 Dec 2007

I have just purchased and loaded two games onto my PC. One is OutRun2006 Coast 2 Coast and the other is World Racing 2.
I get the following message when I try to play them, Unable to create direct 3D device with the current settings Run Config tool and check that video settings are valid.
I have tried the screen settings on all the sizes listed in the config. box without any success.
The graphics card is a onboard Intel(R) 82845G/GL/PE/GV
Op.system is XP
I'd appreciate any help as I'm completely lost

you are using integrated graphics, maybe they are below the minimum requirements for the games.

I don't know anything about graphics cards but I'm begining to think you're correct. I think I need to go to the local computer shop and get info on a upgrade.
Thanks for your help
