Hi. I had this problem and have had similar ones with other games and this is how I solved it.  The game would run for me in windowed mode so I knew it wasn't the computer.  The problem was my 1920x1080 widescreen monitor.  I had it connected through an HDMI cable and the only resolutions I could switch to were far too large.   So what I did was connect a VGA cable to the same monitor and then switched over to it through Display Properties.  I was now able to select much lower screen resolutions and my game ran perfectly after selecting a lower one.  When I am done playing I switch back to HDMI.  I hope this helps as it took a frustratingly long time to figure out.  -Dave

A soldier's death is never in vain if it makes the formula more plain.
A few dozen make a better case for refining that third decimal place.
They call me Zombie because I don't sleep, as I slowly struggle to climb this heap,
of corpses, data points, and trials, but from the top - I'll see for miles!
