Let's get some info...
What are the game requirements? Does your computer meet them?

Go Start>Run, type in:
devmgmt.msc
Click OK.

Device Manager will open.
Any errors there?

It looks like your video driver is missing.
Go here: http://support.thete...e-1573aca75a1b}, download, and install 6-10_xp-2k_dd_ccc_wdm_enu_36790.exe
