    Re-Install the game. If that doesn't work,try downloading your latest video drives...if you already did,do it again. And how many MB is your video card?

    Download a copy of Belarc Advisor to get a look see at all your installed hardware & software. I would even suggest printing the results out to save time when giving info to tech support. Post your motherboard & video card results in this thread.

    Here's your video card:
    I see you have an HP.
    Read through these
    removing old video card drivers . Scroll down to the details for W98.
    Get new drivers here
    Good idea to get them before you uninstall the old ones.
