I have installed the game Egypt III. The installation went fine, but when I try to start the game, nothing happens. I updated my video and sound card drivers, but it still doesn't work.

Your first problem is the video card.  

You have an intel 82815 which does not have the 3d requirements.
and is at the bare minimum for memory requirements on the video card...but again, does not have the 3d part.

I would suggest buying a cheap Geforce 4 Mx440 or Mx4000.   Should be able to find them for around $50 or less.
