I just got roller coaster tycoon 3 platinum and it installed fine but when try to run it, it loads two of the startup screens and then freezes on an all white screen. I haven't had any trouble playing the first roller coaster tycoon game.

I don't have any idea about what most of that is, or how to check it. I have an Acer aspire 5100-5674 with windows vista. I got it in 2007 if that helps.
I'm really not much of a computer person
