It could be that the video card is not powerful enough or that you need to update the version of direct x that you have. Check your version of direct x by going to start, run (on the right hand side) and type in dxdiag and press enter, the first screen that will be displayed will have your version of direct x. If it is not as high as 9c then I suggest that you download direct x 9c from microsofts website or run a search in google for it. Download it and this will update your directx. Secondly when you are in the dxdiag program check under the display tab and make sure that 3d features are enabled. If they are not or you do not have this option (because it is greyed out), then you may need to upgrade your graphics card.

answer:your system is not compatible or your operating system
first of all make sure the game is compatible with your system.if the box says 256 ram have at least 380 or 512 for best performance.if the box said 1.00ghz and you have .89ghz proccessor the game won't work.if you wouldn't mind would you send me the specs of your computer and the game so i can determine if the game is compatible.i only need the processor ghz and the amount of ram,video graphics and the info on the game box.if you don't know how to get this info just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org will write a walkthrough for you.
If so here are a few things you may need to fix / look at, since I doi not know how well you maintain the computer.
1st: Have you Defragmented your computer? If not this month, please do so ASAP. 2nd: How much free space is left on your hard drive? You need over 15% free space. 3rd: Have you cleaned out you cookies, temp Files & Temp. Internet Files? 4th: Every item you add or install anything on your computer, it starts running each time you boot up. This eats up your limited power and processor.To see this you will need to use the CRTL/ALT/DELETE keys to open up your TASK MANAGER On the right side you will see a TAB called START UP. Each item that is checked or ********** is running in the background. You do not need this stuff running. Its a gift of Microsoft to make it start faster for you and is no longer a needed item since you have so much power. Uncheck most if not all items, like MSN or YAHOO chat, Games and anything not directly related to the computer operation.
If it did run and all of the above are good then do a system restore to an date that you know it played.
