Cannot Play! After 3 intro movies, everything goes black

I've written in to the support email address and received no response at all

I just bought this game online via Steam at the beginning of June and it fails to start. it shows the 3 "startup" intro movies then the screen goes completely blank. I'm assuming it's a menu screen because if I click randomly on the black area I hear clicking. Once, i think, the game started and I had also a plain black screen but sometimes a pure-white polygon went past.

I've looked here on the forums and people speak about some people getting blank movies but they say skipping them to the menu and then changing settings helps. My problem is I _CAN_ see the movies, but i _CAN'T_ see the game itself.

I have:

Windows XP Professional x64 Edition (2003 service pack 2)
nvidia geforce 8800GTS (i have the latest drivers)

Any help to get this working would really be appreciated!

Thank you

Fix for movie black outs

I was able to get the movies to play by disabling "desktop composition" for the game.

This can be done by right clicking on the either the short cut or the .exe file, chosing the compatibility tab, and chceking "Disable desktop composition"

Hope this helps. I have 32 bit Vista and run a Dell XPS 700 w/ dual nVidia GeForce 7950 GT video cards.
