RED ALERT 2 on windows 7

I really hope I am not reposting this question, I am using an acer 4738z with win7 32bit, i installed red alert2 today and the menus and other options cannot be seen, but in truth they are there, if i just click without seeing it does respond normally, also i get a black screen when the videos play, while i can hear the audio,i tried compatibility mode to win2000, winxp, tried running as admin still didn't work

like on this screen
