Can't run The Sims 3 game on my laptop

I've installed the game correctly but i can't play it well.
At first it told me that the d3dx_9.dll file is missing and i've updated it with the latest direct x. Well, there's no more problem of that . Then, when i tried to run it once more, came out a message told that i need a new video graphic card or update it.
But, i don't know how to update it and i'm also completely out of pocket money . If i'd like to buy one, how to choose the right graphic card? Or i just simply need to update mine?
If possible, can i play it without a video graphic card?
P/s: I've checked for my graphic card and it stated that it is Intel Graphic Media
Accelerator in Use: Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family
Video BIOS: 1436
Driver Version: 188.8.131.528
Operating System: Windows Vista Ultimate , Service Pack 1
DirectX* Version: 10.0
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium (R) Dual CPU T2370 @ 1.73 GHz

In your post you have not mentioned your laptop make and model which is always useful to know.
No, you can not run your game without your graphics card, which in your laptop is built into the motherboard. You wouldn't be able to run your laptop.What you can do is update the driver for your graphics card. But will need to know what your laptop is.
The updated driver will be free so no damage to your pocket.
Post back with make and model and I will try and find the driver for you.
