The problem could be a couple of different things, it depends... does the problem laptop have sufficient specs for the game? (Good enough CPU, RAM, video?) The issue a lot of people will point out here is you are running windows ME, which is a very old (and many consider unstable) operating system.

You could try updating the directx drivers and so forth, but microsoft has ended support for windows ME. If the laptop supports it, I would recommend upgrading to windows XP. Otherwise try updating your video drivers and directx drivers and hope for the best...

Thank you for your reply.  I checked the item you listed above.  The windows me  had  to be changed as you suggested.  The game works on mine but  I  have the xp pro. You were also correct on the directx drivers and video  drivers.   I appreciate the help very much.   Regards....
