Righto, well I'm running Windows XP Pro - SP3 as of right now and I cannot get this emulator to work for the life of me. I've installed everything correctly (as far as I know) and all my drivers are up to date.

So I start the program up, and everything appears to be normal. The output window says:

PCSX2 0.9.6 - compiled on Feb 27 2009
Savestate version: 8b400004
x86Init:
CPU vendor name = GenuineIntel
FamilyID = 3
x86Family = Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.20GHz
CPU speed = 3.195 Ghz
Cores = 1 physical [1 logical]
x86PType = Standard OEM
x86Flags = bfebfbff 0000649d
x86EFlags = 20100000

Features:
Detected MMX
Detected SSE
Detected SSE2
Detected SSE3
Not Detected SSSE3
Not Detected SSE4.1

Hotkeys:
F1 - save state
(Shift +) F2 - cycle states
F3 - load state


and the actual emulation window is running. I do have a BIOS and plugins that do work with this version, but when I try and run a game (by clicking File > Run CD/DVD) I get this in the output screen:

Resetting...
Ready
Bios Version 1.60



**************
rom2 NOT FOUND
**************






**************
erom NOT FOUND
**************



Framelimiter rate updated (UpdateVSyncRate): 59.94 fps
MTGS > Thread Started, Opening GS Plugin...
MTGS > GSopen Finished, return code: 0xffffffff


and then a little window pops up that says:

'An unhandled or unrecoverable exception occurred, with the message:

The GS plugin failed to open/initialize.

Pcsx2 will now close. More details may be available via the emuLog.txt file.'

I did look in the emuLog.txt file, but it doesn't say anything out of the ordinary, except for everything I just posted.

Help? D:

Alright, since no one's replied yet I figure I should give a little update. I did get rid of that nasty 'The GS plugin failed to open/initialize.' error by messing around with the configuration, but now I have this:

PCSX2 0.9.6 - compiled on Feb 27 2009
Savestate version: 8b400004
x86Init:
CPU vendor name = GenuineIntel
FamilyID = 3
x86Family = Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.20GHz
CPU speed = 3.195 Ghz
Cores = 1 physical [1 logical]
x86PType = Standard OEM
x86Flags = bfebfbff 0000649d
x86EFlags = 20100000

Features:
Detected MMX
Detected SSE
Detected SSE2
Detected SSE3
Not Detected SSSE3
Not Detected SSE4.1

Hotkeys:
F1 - save state
(Shift +) F2 - cycle states
F3 - load state
CDVD Plugin CDVDbin.dll: Version 3 != 5
CDVD Plugin CDVDiso.dll: Version 3 != 5
CDVD Plugin CDVDnull.dll: Version 3 != 5
SPU2 Plugin SPU2null.dll: Version 4 != 5
Resetting...
Ready
Bios Version 1.60



**************
rom2 NOT FOUND
**************






**************
erom NOT FOUND
**************


and then I get the whole 'pcsx2 0.9.6.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.' deal from Microsoft and it crashes.

The game I'm trying to play BTW is Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life and it's a .mdf file, if that matters any. :p

I actually just found out I don't have any of the drivers for my graphics (including video card and such) installed, but you're right, my CPU is pretty old so I'm assuming the GPU is as well. I have a Dell XPS 600, so I'm assuming I'm running either a 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX or a 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 6800

Well that GPU will be 'okay', but that CPU will surely bottleneck you.
Regardless, install your latest GPU driver and make sure that you also installed the latest directX runtime.
Also, make sure that you are running a corresponding version of plugin.
You need SSE2 version or something that your CPU supports.
