From th eLenovo site, looks like you have Radeon X1400 onboard graphics. FIFA is going to require more than this can give, in several areas. It is very unlikely you can upgrade the graphics in any way, as the existing is part of the mobo.

You do not have a video card as such, it is a component on the motherboard. Replacing it is taking a bit of your board and trying to put another in- not impossible, but near as. There are external cards, but they cost an awful lot. Long and short is that the chance of replacing it is effectively none. Sorry :(

It doesn't look like the proper video card driver is installed.
This may or may not help you play FIFA, but it may help with other games.
I think that this particular Lenovo Thinkpad T60 (model 1951-44S) uses an Intel based
onboard graphics chip.
You might want to try to install the Intel driver listed here > Drivers and software - ThinkPad T60, T60p
Here is a direct link for the Video Driver > Intelv6.14.10.4926
