Downloading drivers for a video card

I have Windows ME. I tried to play a game and after it was installed it says "Could not find any compatible direct 3D device with the required capabilities. Make sure you have current drivers for your video card." Can I download these drivers or what can I do? Help?

You need to visit the Web site of the vendor of your video card. You may also need to update the DirectX drivers from Microsoft. That is done through the Windows Update site (Start, All Programs, Windows Update).
