Hello haphuong1712,

First of all the graphics card you have isn't supported by the game.
Second make sure you've got the latest drivers installed for your graphics card. You should be able to download these from the laptop manufacturers website.

Try installing this driver it's the newest.

Download the file, uninstall your existing driver via add/remove programs in control panel, restart your PC and then install the new one.

Do you have any custom content?

Try uninstalling the driver and reinstall it again.
Also try installing this motherboard chipset driver.
