I used to have Windows ME running on my computer and a copy of V-Rally 2 (among other things...). My hard drive got wiped one day and I had to reinstall Windows ME from scratch and since then V-Rally 2 no longer works. Could anyone tell me what could cause this?

It installs all right, and I run the configuration program, but when I try to run the game it goes to a black screen for about 5 seconds and returns to the desktop.

I installed it on a friend's computer to test it and it runs fine. What could the problem be? :(

When you reinstalled Windows...did you update all of your video drivers?

What resolution is the screen set at?

First of all, I re-installed ME (couldn't afford XP at the time), added all drivers, ran Windows Update etc. Then I installed the game...didn't work.

I had the video resolution set at my normal standards (800x600, 24-bit colour on a 15" monitor), heck I even reduced it to 16-bit to see if that worked...nope.

I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game a couple of times, but nothing worked. I'm at a loss.

Also, after I did install XP, it did the exact same thing.
