Video Problem with games

My screen goes blank win my kid trys to play her game 102 dalmations, and also the online game toon town. I have a 15" proview lcd flat monitor and a gforce4 64megddr graphnics card. I can hear sound the screen goes blank when the game goes to load then it goes back to windows xp with like 800x600 resolution. I have to close the game then the monitor goes back to normal. Is it a dirver problem, monitor problem, direxct x?? please help.

Update your drivers....also make sure your video settings are setup correctly..

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.
