Some Programs won't play on Windows. But generally you can just tell it to not care when it says it had no passed the Windows Logo Test?

It would seem someone else did all the previous installations,eg :
Package PC.right ?
Do you have a video card "cd driver disk"?
If not then i guess you did lose what you never had.

Why not get Windows,your monitor and graphic card working first.
1.What graphic card is it ?
2.Does it meet your game minimum's,Max is better.
Try dxdiag.exe tests.

Glad to help and glad you understood my way of replying.Some don't.

Note:be sure to put these driver dl's on a cd-r,in case of a new Windows install as you don't seem to have the cd's that came with these devices.
