What video card are you running?

Try upgrading to the latest video card drivers?

www.nvidia.com
www.ati.com

Also try the latest direct-x?

What is your current setup, hardware and software wise?

you have to do it in a number of places.

a good checklist:

Find out the speed of the CPU (ex:Pentium 4 2.2 GHz)
the model and make of the Graphics card (ex: Radeon 9200 SE 128 MB graphics card)
how much RAM you have on your machine (ex: 512 MB of RAM)

For example here is my system (simplified):
Intel Pentium 4 2.4 Ghz
Radeon 9800 Pro 128 MB
1 Ghz DDR RAM



If you would like to find out what you have on your machine, you have to check your system's properties and do a little bit of digging, or use a 3rd party software like SANDRA.

Judging from what i can tell.  It is either
A.) you don't have a graphics accelerator that is capable of supporting open GL
B.) (as mentioned by Wakeup) your video card drivers are not up to date
c.) (as mentioned by Wakeup) your directX installation is not up to date.

also, there is a possibility that your specific graphics card has issues with Medal of Honor.  Make sure to patch the game to the latest release (as well as follow the other directions by Wakeup)
