    Go to Start --> Run and type 'dxdiag'. After that's loaded up, go to the display tab and click the "Text DirectDraw" button. It sounds like there might be an issue with your current video card drivers. If the test fails, try to find some new drivers for your video card on the Internet (preferably from the manufacturers website).

    Did this just start happening recently?

    try reinstalling your video card drivers again

    then run dxdiag
    (click start >> run > dxdiag > click ok)
    go to the display tab and run the ddraw and d3d tests
    if they dont work then you need to find the correct drivers for your video card, mobo, or agp/pci adaptors
