It would be helpful if you could post your hardware configuration.

As a start until i know more, read the motoracer docs for known video problems and install directx.

What version of DirectX do you have and does the game support?

What video card are you using? I suspect your problem lies with this card.

I agree, as your sound is working it isn't the soundcard (which in my experience, even in W95/8 is 70% of the time your problem), and because you are hearing sound, the system is not locking.
Be alarmed if you have a PowerVR. Whilst capable cards, they reportedly have myriads of problems with DX games.

Lets start by downloading DirectX 6.0
(Check HTTP://ftpsearch.ntnu.no for the file DX6ENG.EXE or obtain from Microsoft)

Once you have DirectX 6, do a START>FIND for "DXDIAG.EXE"
In DXDIAG, run the DirectDraw and Direct3D tests, also check for more than one display tab (If you have a Voodoo 1 or Voodoo 2)

If the tests don't work, check for updated display drivers on the internet at the manufacturer's website.

If the tests do work, click on "Save Information" and cut/paste the text into a comment so I can see how the DirectX and drivers setup is doing.
