    Hi all,

    I just installed Empire Earth on my laptop computer:

    Compaq Presarie 2140, 2.4GHz AMD, 512MB, 60GB, ATI Radeon IGP 320

    I have all latest updates for Windows XP, latest video driver and updated Empire Earth to v2.0


    The game starts and works fine!

    That is until I use "Alt-Tab" to switch to another application. When I then switch back to Empire Earth all I see is a black screen.

    When I move my finger on my touch pad, I see the game cursor, but everything else is black. This happens even if I haven't even actually started a game yet, but is still in one of the game's menu screens.

    One note, if I from "Game Settings" choose "Game Settings", and then change from "Primary Display Driver" to "ATI Radeon IGP 320" OR VICE VERSA and press the "OK" button, the game exits. Maybe that's normal.

    Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

    Thanks
