Please help!

I just bought the game, but it doesn´t start. The game only shows me that paradox-video and the akella-video. I have no idea what to do. The screen becomes black and stays like that. :(

CPU: AMD Athlon 6000+
Graphic: GeForce 8800 GTS 640 MB
RAM: 2,00 GB
Free Space: about 200 GB
Direct X: 9.0 c

Does anybody know how to fix this?

Thanks for your help!
