First you might want to give us some details about your computeres. Such as:
1. What type of video card do you have?
2. What type of Operating System?
3. How much RAM does your computer have?
4. What sound card do you ahve?
5. How fast is your computer?

The more detailed information you give us, the better.

Ok, so apparently you have an onboard video card. Now, I'm not sure but, that may be the reaason why you aren't able to play your game. According to the readme they provided on the website,
Quote:
Minimum: 32 MB video card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers
("GeForce2"/"Radeon 8500" or better)
Recommended: 64(+) MB video card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers
("GeForce 3" / "Radeon 9000" or better)

I am not sure if you're onboard graphics spuports it however you are definetly better off buy a separte AGP video card made by nVidia or ATI. You're gaming will be a lot smoother and your onbaord video card won't steal your RAM.

Speaking of RAM, you might want to consider getting another stick of 256 to bring your RAM total fo 512. The more RAM the better as games are more cpu and vpu intensive now a days.

I agree. It looks like the graphics card is not up to the games. If it is an onboard card, then you will need to make sure you have an AGP slot to put a graphics card in to.
