please help with my EXCEPTION ACCESS VIOLATION - jimbro - 01-13-2011

I keep getting this message when I try to run it after it crashes. I've been poking around and I guess I probably need to download new drivers, or something? Can you please help me and tell me what to do? There's a good chance that I wont understand the "technical computer" talk. If its possible can you give me some step by step instructions on how to fix this? If it is fixable.

I'll post the HPL Log for you too

What graphics card do you have? From the log it looks like you have a very old s3 card that only supports OpenGL 1.4 and no shader support. You need an nvidia geforce 6 or an ati x1000 or newer card to play the game.
