Unhappy KOTOR 2 crashes on Win7

Hi, guys! I've seen lots of topics, similar to this one, and saw that some of you could help me out.
Well, I have Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32-bit, DualCore2Duo E6550, 2333 MHz. My videocard is NVIDIA GeForce 8600GTS.
I've got my hand on KOTOR 2 many years ago and played it well on XP SP2. But now that I have Windows 7 I have graphics issues. Earlier my videocard allowed me to play on the highest quality without crashing at all. But now my Win7 and videocard is not recognizible at all. Below I attached Config Report from KOTOR 2:

As you can see my videocard is seen as "RDPDD Chained DD" which is not good for the game.
I also did everything Astrotoy7 and Q said in this topic http://64.20.36.211/showthread.php?t=194324, by this I mean using compatibility installation and starting a game with XP SP2, patched the game through, replaced file mss32.dll.

In the game issues are seen through out as the following:
1. All movies are seen as shortcuts and not whole-screen.
2. I at first started a game with highest quality but starting the Prologue game was bugging so great that I figured that Frame Buffer Effects, Soft Shadows and V-Sync is preventing it. I disabled them, but on Peragus II it still crashed through out - difficulties with moving, Jedi Exile freezes while running, even though I had to lower quality to the lowest.

The same goes for KOTOR 1, but I didn't try it out right now with compatibility and replacing the files in main directory.
Can anyone help me out, please!
