You've gotta list your complete system specs in detail if you expect to get any help.

"its telling me that cpu speed requirement is 266mhz and is saying my system is -1230mhz and my driver space is not detected"

You didn't bother to list your specs in the OP & we have to check whether your system at least meets the minimum game requirements. Your specs are pretty weak by modern standards but I didn't realize Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 is a 10 yr old game. I have no idea what "driver space" must have copied that incorrectly.

"Hardware Requirements:

CPU: PII 266 or equivalent
Video Memory: 2 MB VRAM
Hard Drive Space: 350 MB
Mouse: Yes
Sound Board: Yes
DirectX: DirectX v7.0a"

"Driver space" i think he meant hard drive free space.

Maybe since it is such an old game, it doesn't know how to deal with 'modern' CPUs that run at such a high clock speed? Did you check for a patch?
