what are your specs? do you have an 8 series graphics card? as dx10 only works with the next gen graphics card e.g. the 8 series by nvidia so you may need to rewin your direct x

You can't run DX10, you only have XP. DX10 is only available for Vista. Get the latest version of x9.0c:
Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime

Buy a video card, because you have onboard video (which sucks, basically no 3d hardware acceleration) and an open agp slot.
