I'll assume Its the graphics card you have. Its to weak to run the game properly. I have the same problem in fact. I just recently added a gig of ram but over looked the incredibly demanding graphic requirements to play the game. So even though you might meet the minimum game requirements for the processor, ram and memory to play the game you still wont be able to see anything without a stronger graphics card. They need to make the game a bit more graphically friendly.
I am having the same issue. I had this problem with the demo and tried contacting cryptic for help about 3 weeks ago with no response. My husband, God bless him, thought it was just because it was a demo so bought the actual game for me and the issue remains. I cannot receive any help from cryptic. So good luck. I am afraid that I will just be out of the money. :-(
