In the options, what's your hardware settings?

You could try start>run>dxdiag, then click on the test tab, and see if everything works correctly.

Do you have onboard or integrated video? RC3 requires something called "Hardware Transform & Lighting", something that onboard/integrated lacks.

Type dxdiag in Run then go to Display. Find Chip Type, then post it here.

I am sorry to inform you, but RC3 will not work with that.

Get a real video card, preferably a nVidia GeForce card. The 6600GT is a good budget card, just make sure your motherboard has an AGP or a PCI-Express x16 slot.
