    When I start the game, the two logo screens come up fine, then Atrus' letter.

    But once the game gets to the menu, everything goes black, and I can only tell what the mouse is over because the only thing that is displayed is the hints.

    When I click on game options, I see the animation of the page turning, which works perfectly, then the screen goes black again, save for the menu hints.

    When I wander around and go into the game itself, the screen is black, and I see the bottom icons, and that's it.

    I have to CTRL+ALT+DEL to get out of the game.

    I updated my drivers to the latest Catalyst version, which included uninstalling the previous ones fully, rebooting, installing the new version, rebooting.

    DirectX 9 is showing no errors with it's diagnosis.

    The music is great tho :P

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2
    ATI Radeon 9600 256mb ram, AGP 8x
    Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Platinum
    1024mb DDR RAM

    For the thrill of giggles, try the Omega drivers?

    There's also a list of different driver changes you can make to the catalyst settings that might affect this. Heimdall G is the one that knows that information.
