When I launch the game, for a split-second I see what looks like an intro, then it changes to black. No sound either.

Athlon 64 3200+ @2200MHz
1024 MB RAM
nVidia Geforce 7600GT 512MB RAM
Windows 7 Professional 32 Bit

I tried reinstalling the game, audio & video drivers, compatibility mode, using agp x4 instead of x8, running it in admin mode, disabling the UAC.
