SetPixelFormat(57) failed after window create


i just installed panda3d and created my own game with two lines specified in manual.
the whole game is :
import direct.directbase.DirectStart

when i ran it, i get the following error.

DirectStart: Starting the game.
Known pipe types:

:display:wgldisplay(error): SetPixelFormat(57) failed after window create
:display(error): Window wouldn’t open; abandoning window.
