jeeze...that's a little hard for me to describe as i can't run that utility (it's a home program and i'm on a domain computer at work so it won't even install...which is a bummer...)....there should be a button somewhere that says save log?

It should said display adapter in the righthand pane. If it doesn't you could try downloading and running Sysspec.

sysspec (download link at bottom of page).
When it opens click the system button > then click the down arrow next to system > click info to clipboard > click ok when it says that it was copied to the clipboard > reply here and paste the info here.

Up to you, would only take a couple of minutes and you would know if you could play the game or not.
