Try going to HP's website and getting updated drivers for your hardware-- most importantly your graphics card.

hit start-> run, type dxdiag

At the bottom of the system tab it should say what version of directx you have, what is it? Also, what kind of graphics card does it have? (The display tab should tell you.)

Sorry for the delay, i've been avoiding forums as it's finals week for me. :'(
