Default windows xp pro

so i got this and can't play counter strike source, red alert 2, half life 2, and yuri's revenge.

i didn't try any other games but what should i do?

Could it be doing that cause i didn't activate it yet?

they don't launch cause i double click them and it looks like its getting in cause a black screen appears but then it goes back to the desktop and thats it.

with counter strike source and half life 2 it comes up with an error that says send now or don't send so i sent it.
