Do some Googling.... I think you'll find some fairly hefty video requirements to play the game. Anyway, make sure directX is running OK and you have the latest 3D drivers for the nVidia. I suspect it's the video card in your machine that's not up to specs. Some very interesting replies in the forums regarding the game - seems like not everyone has been able to get it to work even with better graphics than you have.

Regards.
