There's a Magnify.exe, is that what you're trying to start? It sits at
the top of the screen, and magnifies the area around the pointer. The
program is located in:

%SystemRoot%\system32\magnify.exe

Is it running in the Task Manager after you attempt to run it? If so,
and it doesn't show at the top of the screen, I would suspect a graphics
driver problem, or a damaged file. Try these:

- Click Start, Run, type SFC /SCANNOW, click OK. If any files are
damaged or missing, they'll be replaced. You may need to reboot
afterwards so damaged files will be replaced.

- Run DXDiag and see if it complains of uncertified drivers; try
lowering graphics hardware acceleration, etc.. Also look at the
computer manufacturer site and the graphics card manufacturer site for
different drivers. Try upgrades, reference drivers, and drivers for
other model cards till you find one that works. Do a search at
http://groups.google.com entering the game and graphics card model for
more suggestions.

Look for drivers and utilities at these sites:

See if there's a BIOS upgrade for your system. Look at the
manufacturer's site, Compaq, PB, etc., and also at the motherboard
manufacturer's site.
