sounds like you need to download and install drivers for your sound and video cards

To expand on Brian's answer, you need to install updated drivers for your video adapter. If you know what kind of video card you have, you can go to the manufacturer's website and down load the most current verson to install. If you have onboard video, then you'll need to install the VIA chipset drivers for your motherboard.
If you are not sure what kind of video card you have, let us know and we may be able to direct you on how to find out.
If you do know and have obtained the video driver but are unsure on how to update or install it, post back and we will be happy to talk you through it.
The same holds true for your sound card drivers.

P.S., WELCOME TO TSG!!!!!

Download and install any updated drivers for the video card/display adapter. You might also want to download and install the Microsoft DirectX 9.0b multimedia drivers.
