The error you're getting suggests that you don't have the proper driver installed for the nVidia GF 320M or that GPU does not have enough horse power or VRAM to run the game. Go to the nVidia site while in Windows XP and download their latest driver for your card. Try it. (Make sure it's for XP not Vista or Win 7.)

proper driver installed it's what came with it. I read up other game issues and it might be because the mb doesn't have a video card. I'd love to go XP but my laptop was imaged by my school for windows 7. Was mainly to play a few games during times where i get bored at school, but i suppose i can't if it has to be on xp
