You can try updating the Video Driver. I would suggest you to update the system with a good Graphic Card because Windows Vista needs a good video memory. Onboard Video will not be able to compete with Windows Vista requirements.

If you are running Vista, before you consider downgrading to XP, find your privateer.exe file and right click it. Once the page is displayed, left click on compatibility. Then check the Run this program in compatability with... Click the button below and scroll until you find XP. Click it and then click Apply to save it. Then click ok. That should enable you to run the game on Vista. If it doesn't something is wrong with your operating system, not the computer.
Boot the system in safe mode. Go to device manager and under display adapters , right click on the onbaord graphics adapter and disable the same. It worked on one of the systems i troubleshot for the same problem.
If you have an onboard video card, that won't be enough to run the game. Try updating your graphics card. Here are the requirements to successfully run the game:
suggested system requirements:
Pentium III 1 GHz, 256 MB RAM, graphic card 32MB (GeForce 2 or better), 1.2 GB HDD, Windows 2000/XP
you cant upgrade your graphics by means of a driver, if it's a desktop pc you will have to fit a newer AGP graphics card or fit one if you only have onboard graphics, and then the relevant driver, if its a notebook, 9 times out of 10 the graphics are onboard and cannot be upgraded.
There are different reasons why this might happen. Let's try some.
1.) Does your board have an onboard video card, cause if it does, then XP might be using that as the primary monitor. TRy plugging into the onboard video when you start up! If that works then you need to disable the onboard video.(try disabling it in bios!)
if not then
2.)When booting at the select xp or recovery console, press F8. You'll get the menu with safe mode and what not. Go down to Enable VGA Mode then press enter. If that works, go to display settings and lower your resolution then restart. But usually when this happens your monitor says "Out of Range" but u can still try
Well if that doesn't work, tell me more!
