halo 2 strange problem

Hi everyone,
I've installed halo 2 on my PC, it's a laptop, but when i start it up, it not working correctly. After the message: "Experience may change during play online", there's nothing happens, even an error message and i can't play the game, my monitor become dark.
So, what's my problem, i've read some threads about halo 2 on windows 7, but none of them suitable for my case.

Plz, i need help.

PS:
//This is my system
Windows 7 ultimate 32bit
////////////////////////////

VGA: Ati Radeon HD 4330

What third party security AV are you using? Its firewall might blocked the connection while you trying to access online. Also try to run game as administrator (Right click-->run as administrator).

Hi Tuan,
I'm using Free Avira, and i've tried run under administrator, tick the compability mode as windows vista sp2, but it's still not working while the firewall is turnoff, and there is no error message.
The task manager show me halo2 process always occupy 50% processor, is that wrong? Or must i turn some windows service on ?

Update your DirectX: Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime

This will cover DX versions 9, 10 and 11... you're probably missing 9 and 10.

Hi Fumz,
It's not solved my problem
My Windows 7-Version is build 7600, is there any bug in this version ?

Try updating your Ati drivers: Graphics Drivers & Software

Good luck!

Did you dl and run the installer? Same thing occur?

No, there's no bug in 7 that would prevent you from playing the game. It's a software (driver) conflict you've got to find and resolve.

If it were me, I would, as Robin suggested, update my graphics drivers. Only this time, after you've downloaded the latest drivers, don't install them over your current set. Download and install Driver Sweeper: Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

Uninstall your video drivers, then reboot into safe mode (tap the F8 key at reboot). In safe mode, run Driver Sweeper and place a check on the ATI box... let it delete all traces of ATI drivers. When it's done (which is fast), reboot normally and install the 10.6 drivers.

Let's see if that, along with having the latest DirectX doesn't solve the problem?
