Can you tell me the specs of your machine?

Like Display drivers and processors? 

Display Driver: Intel G45/G43 

Processors: Intel (R) 2 Duo CPU E7500 2.93 GHz

From what i know definitely terrible XD if this effects it's ability to start then i i guess i need to try again when i get a better computer, as for other part's of the computer they are all old/outdated to sadly. 

Thanks, It sounds like an issue with that graphics card. I've tested it out on an old laptop with older integrated graphics) and it works. Sorry. Maybe try making sure your drivers are up to date?
