try out the following things :
1. make sure that your sound and video card drivers are DirectX 5.2 compatible.
   [if you do update directX dont forget to restart]
2. get the update pack -
3. shutdown background prorgams such as AV , ATI etc.. they might interfere with the     operation of the game.
4.Try setting your resolution to 640x480 8bit color.
5. open prefs.cfg [MechCommander main dir] with wordpad/ and change the
    following line DirectDraw=t to DirectDraw=f
