errors installing Origin on Ubuntu

I'm new at Linux so I hope I can give you the right information. I've been trying to install Origin on Ubuntu 16.04 and I keep getting errors. I used some youtube guides to install it with PlayOnLinux and tried it with various versions of Wine and various other settings, both the originsetup.exe and the originthinsetup.exe, etc etc, and I am just at my wits end after many hours of this. Can you help me figure out if there is any hope at all? It's a pretty old computer but Origin was running fine in Windows before my hard drive apparently started failing so I got the bright idea to install a new hard drive and try to put Linux on (even though this is clearly way beyond my capabilities). This latest time I was using Wine 1.9.12-staging. I have also tried 1.9.12, 1.9.8 and 1.7.35. None of these worked. I am not sure how to even check my computer's specs at this point, I probably need to download a program that will check that. I did do sudo lshw -html > myspecs.html but they didn't even look like the specs you would be looking for, but I can add that huge file if you want. Yes I am pretty confident that I am have actually installed Linux on the new hard drive and not the failing hard drive but yes I was dumb enough to make that mistake already...
Here is my latest debugger log. I saw the complain about msvcr120.dll in the previous log and found the file at https://www.dll-files.com/msvcr120d.dll.html and added it to the virtual drive but this clearly does not seem to have helped.
rt:MSVCRT__wsopen_s : pmode 0x01ff ignored
Thanks so much...

Sorry I did not have more system info. I had to go to bed, I've been fighting with this for so long and getting very little sleep. I downloaded "hardinfo" now and have the following information.
Processor: 2x AMD Athlon(tm) OO X2 250u Processor
Memory: 3788MB (2624MB used)
Operating System: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
This still doesn't appear to give me information about graphics or anything. It has an integrated graphics card. The computer has also been locking up pretty frequently since I installed Linux. This weird repeating pattern appears on the screen and there is no mouse cursor or anything and I have to turn it off. The old hard drive has a ton of bad sectors but I checked the new one I am running off now and it ha 0 bad sectors.
