Make sure you have gotten all the patches for it. Also, the game is old enough that i can say it might have compatibility issues. Through the games main .exe file go to properties and see if you can run it at a 95 or 98 compatibility mode.

i found out how to fix the problem. Go to the run command. tyoe in dxdiag. then go into the display tab and make sure the direct x is enabled. mine was disabled for some reason.
