I can find files without any problems

The problem is that when i open up the shortcut for the game, the window pops up but it never goes to the title screen. It just sits there in black. People have had discussions with pianodream about trying to fix there game, but she said that she would have to hack into our computers to do it, I'd rather not do that. I have an HP 2000 notebook PC that has Windows 8. My model number is: C2M44UA#ABA
