Default video card problem

Please help a computer challenged member of this forum...
I have a Emachines t6212 with a ATI RADEON XPRESS 200.
When I got the computer I could play Battle for Middle Earth on it with no problem at all.
Now, when I start the game I get a message asking if my video card has the requirements to play the game...it also asks me if I have something called Direct x 9....
Could I have erased some setting on the hard drive so the game is not working? Now(and I know this is probably a stupid question) isn't the video card installed in the computer?? I couldn't have erased anything vital could I???
How do I get my game to work again...
Thanks.
