      You might try installing a different version of DirX. A lot of games come with DirX so you can install it from the same CD. Or you can get an upgrade at http://www.microsoft.com. Sometimes simply reinstalling DirX can solve the problem.

      Did it work before with the same OS?
      If youve upgraded from say win98 to 2000 or XP the Direct accees problems of some games and the Bios come into play and will dump program and system.

      how long are you waiting with that black screen on ? If I remember correctly it was AOE that did the same thing to me and by accident I founded that if I wait a few more seconds it eventually comes up. I thought as well, that it’s corrupted, in the beggining. The same case or something simillar, now with AOM.
