This may be to do with your display adapter (graphics card). You don't mention what you have, but I would suggest installing the latest drivers for it and trying the game then.

My graphics card is 8600GT 512mb PCI-E .I unistalled the Nvidia drivers and the game loaded.Then I downloaded GeForce 8 series for windows XP 197.45_desktop_winxp_32bit_international_whql and installed it but I got the same problem again. Stop 0x50 in blue screen.

a good place to start would be to make sure your computer is updated to the latest level of Directx for your version of windows
Then go to this page and and download the various patches for the game listed there

Well I have installed directX10 in windows xp which is a directx9 OS and when I'm loading the game it says that directx9 is not installed in the computer.
I have already unistalled directx10 using the "add/remove programs" but when I'm trying to install directx9 it says that a better version is already installed in the computer.
Do you have any ideas?I would need some help please

Microsoft never ported DX10 to Windows XP. So if you've installed it, then its a hacked/cracked/bastardized version which could have caused all kinds of damage to the system. You may have uninstalled it, but theres no guarantee the damage has been reversed

My advice is to cut your losses now and to reformat and reinstall the machine - this time sticking to "real" software, not unofficial hacks
