Try installing codecks, to play multimedia it's required to have the right codecs present, DirectX isn't requiredfor movie's, only for 3D Graphics which require the Graphic Card to do all the work.
Try installing K-Lite Mega Codeck Pack, it includes lots of codecs for multimedia. It's 100% free and legal. It comes with a small multimedia player called "M-Player Classic" which looks like the old Windows Media Player.

Direct3D is a component of Microsoft's DirectX graphics software and is one of the more commonly used graphics accelerators in PC gaming. Of course, before you can enjoy the benefits of Direct3D acceleration, you need to have that particular component enabled in DirectX. Fortunately for your gaming needs, enabling Direct3D acceleration is not an overly complicated process, and can be achieved in a matter of moments. Open the "Start" menu and type "dxdiag" into the Windows Live search box, then press "Enter." This will bring up the "DirectX Diagnostics" dialog box. Click the "Display" tab. Locate the "Direct3D Acceleration" entry. Click the "Enable" option next to the Direct3D entry. This will turn on Direct3D acceleration. You may need to restart your computer to make the changes effective. Hope this helps. http://www.microsoft.com/games/en-us/aboutgfw/pages/directx.aspxhttp://ati-catalyst-drivers.en.softonic.com/Optimise your ATi graphics card's performance b> http://download.cnet.com/3dmark2001/3000-2121_4-10056689.html
Your processor is the problem : It's a dual core 1GHz AMD C-Series processor C-50 and even though it might barely be able to run the game, the game was made before the processor type was released, and thus the game doesn't know what the heck it is and only sees that its a 1GHz CPU and thus considers it to slow to run the game.
Here are the system requirements: Operating Systems: Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista
- CPU: 2.4 GHz
- RAM: 512 Megabytes of RAM (1 GB required for Windows Vista)
- DirectX 9.0c Compatible 3D accelerated 128 MB video card or equivalent (must support Shader Model 2.0 or above)
- DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card
512kbit/s or greater broadband connection for online gameplay
- 6.1 GB free hard disk space for DVD format and additional space required for DirectX 9.0c installation
- 8x or faster DVD-ROM drive
