I am surprised you are not experiencing other performance issues while running Win7 Ultimate 32 w/ only 2gb ram.

Use this to complete your system spec's page,

All I see is 32 bit and 2gb of ram so hardly a gaming rig.
Post a link to the game with the issues
Also seeing this is a re-install make sure you go to the manufactures website and download all the drivers for this machine
Also go to the Intel site and look it up there for graphic's/ chip set drivers.

You are missing the driver. What's your motherboard model? Standard VGA Graphics Adapter means no video driver installed.

Apparently Intel GMA 915 Does not support Aero extensions. Also, refer to this video to install the driver on Windows 7:

According to the pictures in Post #1 you also don't have SP-1 installed (7600) should be (7601).
Lots of things will not work proper in Windows 7 that doesn't have SP-1 installed.

You can install SP-1 using Windows 7 Updates.

Could you complete this tutorial by Brink and post the log here.
It could give information that might be helpful to solve your problem.
