Your system does not meet the game's requirements (aka upgrade your PC).

Guessing by that really old version of windows, your CPU is probably the problem.

Unless you're using some theme for Win 7.

The Radeon 9250 doesn't support DX9, as far as I know.

The last Valve game to require at least a DX8.1 card was TF2. From L4D onward, it requires DX9.

Yes, your CPU is the problem;

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K7/AMD...2000DUT3C.html

Notice it says that it features SSE. You need a CPU that is SSE 2 compatible and I don't believe that specific CPU is.

Knowing that Alien Swarm is a lot like Dota 2, I'm positive Dota 2 requires a SSE 2 compatible CPU as well.

Can you tell me all Guides How to resolve this problem? Reinstalling already done, or perhaps a file in C:\Programme\Steam\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\bin missing?

If you've read the previous posts, you'd know that tweaking wouldn't fix your problem.

An outdated CPU that doesn't support the required set of instructions, and a GPU that doesn't support the required shader level.

Better gear up, pal.

Giving my other DotA 2 BETA KEY to the one, who might know how to resolve this problem or what kind of programms are used to be needed to fix the problems. Because as far as i know many games need 3.5 Net Framework or C++ Visual Studio

You already have a topic about this in tech support, only create one thread and wait.
