Are you connected to the internet when you log-in to your YM? If yes, maybe you could download YM and re-install it. The installation may have not been completed.. Also, you may need to restart  your computer after the reinstallation.

Upon startup of game get this error message- "unable to initialize video mode: could not set screen mode."

try download n install latest driver..

Here is something you can try for now:
Many games provide an option to be started in "window"-mode instead of fullscreen.
Open a terminal, cd to the directory where the game is installed and start it from there, but append "--help" behind the command name (or "-h" if that didn't work)! Keep an eye open for an option that looks as if it starts the game in window-mode.
