If the Windows XP is from a different computer that has been registered with Mircosoft, it will read as conterfit - Windows XP is setup for one licence per computer. If that computer that XP was on is no longer, you might be able to call Microsoft and tell them that, and get them to validate that copy for you. As for your Sound and Graphics, it sounds like you don't have the correct drivers for them, each computer is different with different drivers needed for each interface. You will have to have the make and model for each device and find the drivers for them.

Hello xvanpersiex, these are "Full Specifications" of your [Graghis Card].
"Check this to the 'Specs' of the "Motherboard to see if it 'Supports' the Graphic Card?"
"Try 'disconnecting, and reconnecting' the "Graphis Card"
Verify that 'all' the "Connections" are "Tightly Inserted."
*Go to the Control Panel > Device Manager > AGP Graphic Card > Verify Installed? >
Update Driver! > Restart Computer"

"If this information helped? Return and give a "Helpful Rating," please!
Thanks, paul7of9"

Software


First of all, you should not even mention that is a cracked version, I will fake I did not hear that. I am sure you installed the pirate version only to test it on your computer, and you will buy the original if this works.

Regarding the games here are the specification:

Minimum System Requirements:
You must have these minimum system specifications for the game to function correctly. We do not provide support for configurations that do not meet the minimum requirements.
  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows® 2000/XP (Windows 95/98/ME/NT Not Supported)
  • CPU: Pentium 4 1.5Ghz or Athlon XP Equivalent
  • RAM: 512MB
  • Graphics: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible video card which supports Hardware TnL and Pixel Shader 2.0 (GeForce FX / Radeon 9500 or higher)
  • Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card
  • DVD-Rom: Quad-speed (4x) Dvd-Rom Drive
  • Hard Drive: 5.0GB free disk space
  • Input Devices: 100% Windows 2000/XP compatible Mouse and Keyboard (Gamepads and controller are not supported)
Recommended System requirements:
  • CPU: Pentium 4 2.4Ghz or Athlon XP/64-bit equivalent
  • RAM: 1024MB
  • Graphics: ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series or higher video card
  • Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card, Sound Blaster X-Fi series
  • DVD-Rom: Eight-speed (8x) DVD-Rom drive or faster
  • Hard Drive: 5.0GB free disk space
This game requires a CPU of at least 2.4 Ghz and a powerful video card, such as
ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series or higher.

You also need
DirectX 9.0c installed, that may be the reason why it does not start.
Try downloading
DirectX 9.0c here, if it does not work, then, providing that CPU is good enough, you will need to upgrade video adapter or get a new computer.

Download from here and install:
Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime
or
Download details: DirectX 9.0c Redistributable for Software Developers

Sometimes you need an overpowered computer to play latest games, standard computers are usually not powerful enough for new games, that is the reason why they invented Xbox and PS.
