i'm not sure if things are very different where you are, but i noticed that you don't have either Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 installed for Windows XP. not only is this bad for your computer's security, it also prevents DirectX 9.0c from operating correctly.
to fix this, go to www.windowsupdate.com (using Internet Explorer) and get the latest updates. as a warning: since you don't even have service pack 1, its going to probably be a 250+ MB download.
hope that helps. :)
After looking for 30 minutes, Now downloading service pack 1, I hope this will work, I'll get back to you. (Not a threat =p)
Okay, I installed Service pack 1&2.
Installed the Game
First try, Sound hangs.
Second try, Got blackscreen after i created character, i still hear sound if i'm correct, Do not know for sure?
What must i do? This is getting really discouring, I want to play the game, Didnt pay 50 euros for it for nothing.

you might want to try re-installing your video drivers and then directx 9.0c to make sure everything is configured correctly.
for your convenience:
Forceware 66.93 for Win XP/2000 (http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_66.93)
and directx 9.0c is should be on disc one of the kotor 2 install CD's.
I did, I completely wiped my PC, Reinstalled EVERYthing again, So.
Any suggestions left?

Well you could take a leaf out of Zaphod Beeblebroxes book and tell your computer that if it doesnt do what you tell it to you will get a very large axe go down to its memory banks and give it a reprogramming it'll never forget
admitedly this probably will not help or solve the problem but you will feel a lot better
until you realise you'll probably have to buy a new computer because you just smashed it to pieces with an axe
but heres a link to lucas arts support page maybe it'll help
good luck and may the force be with you
I'm already a customer there, also sended a email to them also, so..
