"Your card doesn't support ShaderModel 3.0. Only way is a hardware upgrade.

Citations & Additional details

While for the AMD 690G chipset, the IGP is named ""Radeon X1250"", as for AMD 690V chipset, the IGP is clocked lower and having fewer functions and thus named ""Radeon X1200"" - Reference 1
Chipset models in the series (excluding RD690 and RX690) feature an Integrated Graphics Processor (IGP) [...] based on Radeon R420 and contains 4 pixel pipelines capable of Shader Model version 2.0b with DirectX 9 and OpenGL 2.0 compatibility but lacks hardware vertex processing- Reference 2
For 690V, ""Radeon X1200"" was the name of the IGP, with clock frequency of 350MHz. The major differences between the 690G and 690V chipsets is that the 690V chipset lacks support for TMDS output and no HDMI output, therefore limited to VGA or LVDS output only - Reference 3"
