Try adjusting the hardware acceleration in the display properties, then in the game settings. If this doesn't fix it, then there may be compatibility issues between the game and the video drivers.

My pc laptop has no display on the sceen when it starts up but the start up tone for windows xp comes on the pc starts. So please help mi find the driver hp550 laptop graphics diver

If there is not display, then how will you install Video driver? It is not possible. As you mentioned, the login sound can be heard, then it might be the problem with LCD screen. Connect an external monitor if you have (press Fn+F4 to get the display on external monitor) and check if you are getting display. If display works on external, then the LCD is gone bad.

If no display on external too, then perform the following steps.

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

If the issue still same, contact the manufacturer.

Some games use a different setting for the screen resolution other than what you have it set at, and when exiting the game it doesn't automatically reset the resolution. Go into the display properties, and under the settings tab you will find the screen resolution. Set it to 1024x768. This setting should work depending on the screen size and the video card you may need to go a little higher.
