I have had the same problem. I have purchased a new system with an onboard graphics card and it wouldn't run. I have now purchased a geforce card and installed. It still wouldn't run. After 5 hours my son finally found the answer. He found the answers via google and various forums. The first part of the answer was a certain setting in the graphics card, a line was set to off and had to be turned on. He tried running the game again after this change and still got an error message, once again via google he entered various forums and finally the answer was to roll back the Nvidia drivers to an earlier verson and it now runs fine.
So the short answer to your uestion I guess,is look at your graphics card and drivers.
