Graphics card either not up to scratch to run it which you will need a new one. Or your drivers are out of date - which you can download the latest from the manufacturers website.

Its probably the graphics card.
I had the same problem, but when my mom installed an Nvidia GeForce (forgot the number, I think it was 9500) graphics card, DoW2 worked just fine. Still does.
So try this out and if it doesnt work, well then I cant help

Yeah. 99.9% of all graphic problems seem to be due to out of date drivers. Research what card you have, and update the drivers. It's free but can take a few minutes of hunting around, but the manufacturer always has updates available on their website. Although with a fresh game like DoW2, you might need a better card.
