The error means the graphics processor does not have enough system memory allocated to it.
The maximum you can allocate to the graphics processor on that laptop is 224MB.
The game requires a minimum of 256MB video memory, so you will not be able to run that game I'm afraid.
Even if you installed more RAM you would still only be able to allocate 224MB maximum to the graphics processor.
There is no way to overcome that limit.

Additionally to that, even if you could manage to get the game to run, the problem you would encounter as well is the processor.
Whilst to some extent ram is more important than processor speed that one you have is too slow to cope with that game.

When you open the above you will see that you are actually on the MINIMUM ram for that game.
One way round the situation IF THE COMPUTER IS RUNNING VISTA is to install another stick of ram, which would be a good move anyway and then if you are using Vista run the game in XP mode.
HOWEVER there is no guarantee it will work
