Either you are using the "Microsoft basic display adapter" or you try to run current Blender on a legacy GPU.
Can you post a screenshot from the OpenGL tab of GPU Caps Viewer
I've checked and I have a legacy GPU. Whats my best bet here?
Go to official Blender archive in Germany: Index of /blender/release
Download Blender 2.76 and try it, if it still fails work your way backwards through the version numbers.
