Occluded Background Geometry

I’ve googled this many times and have yet to find an answer. I hear its a graphic problem but I’m not sure what about my graphics I should change. I want to do more modeling but everytime I click on occluded background geometry I get a red mesh and a black screen that won’t let me do what I want until I switch out of it.

I have a Window Vista laptop and an Intel Graphic card (I don’t know to much about graphics) so might some kind soul give me some advice?:eek:
