Alright so I put in the CD and the game starts up. The intro movies are played and after that everything is fine for about 10 seconds. Then, suddenly, everything on the screen turns into a white or yellow box. The button still function properly, but they look like boxes too. I start up the game by clicking around by memory. The actual game is nothing more than a big purplish screen with a small yellow bar at the bottom. At least the sound still works.

This problem has left me unable to complete my campaign so far and I've been working with one of my friends to see if we can fix it, but so far, nothing works. If anyone else has had this problem before please help me. Thanks

PS: We think it may be graphics-card related, but the game worked for over a year on that same PC and no one changed out the cards, so we can figure out why that would be the problem. Everything else on the PC works fine.

Anyways that's why the Zhukov campaign has been stuck. Sorry guys.

New graphic card drivers tend to solve problems like that. If that doesn't, then a reinstall is your next best bet.
