Monkey Island Special Edition Collection - PROBLEM

Hey guys, i'm new to the forum, and Ive been digging like crazy to try and find something about this problem (also here in the forum) and found nothing.

It's also a startup problem, but a little different than the ones i've seen around.

I bought the cd of the Monkey Island Special Edition Collection, which includes both the new Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck's Revenge.

After the installation the game goes to a menu window, where I can choose to play The Secret or Monkey 2, listen to the game's musics or check the art concept of the games.

Listening to the background musics or watching the concept art works alright. The problem is, when I choose to play any of the 2 games the menu closes, the CD (which this game's version asks for if you want to start the game) stops rotating and that's it!! It simply doesn't start up! No crash reports, no blue/red agonazing window, nothing.

I tried the graphic .ini thing (this version aparently doesn't have this file, only the .pak ones), tried to disable the sound enhancement, tried loads of things, nothing worked.

The pc is really new, I bought it last week, and was dying to play this games....

The laptop configs are:
