    If it’s saying that you need dedicated graphics memory, you probably need to not plan on playing those games, or with those graphics settings at least. The GeForce 9400M is an integrated graphics solution, and does not have dedicated video ram. Thus, it’s not a driver issue, but a problem of the game wanting a more powerful graphics card.

    Did you install the bootcamp drivers?
    Which involves on the windows 7 side.
    Insert the OS X install disc and install bootcamp

    Since at first glance you may have the generic drivers from windows 7 since you didn't install your drivers
