Kingdoms of Amalur won't start

I double-click the icon, the developer's logo rectangle pops up (showing an ugly troll or something), then that box turns black, then nothing ever happens. If I go into task manager, it says "Not Responding." My computer is slightly outdated but seems to meet the requirements. I can run other games with higher specifications on high settings, so I'm not sure why that would matter. Here is some of my dxdiag info. If anyone has any suggestions, please respond. I'm searching online but getting quite frustrated. It took two days to download this on my slow internet, and I'm really disappointed.
