Default Direct Draw Problem

Ok I have a new problem?

My brother brought a new game the other day and when I installed it under Windows 2000 it will not run because its says there is a problem with Direct Draw. So I installed the game on my computer with no problems I have the same version of Direct X (9.0c) but I am running Windows XP Professional with SP2.

Because the computer with Windows 2000 was getting on a bit and files where all over the place I thought it would be a good idea to install Windows XP Professional with SP2 on the Windows 2000 computer hoping to fix this problem… but did it ?? NO of course not trust my look.

The problem is with Direct Draw could there be a problem with the Graphic Card not supporting it? The Card is new and state of the art so I can not see the problem here, any ideas?

PS> it run highly demanding games why not this one, before you post I have enabled Direct Draw and my Hardware Acceleration is on full.

Thanks for any help.
