    Sounds like the game might be launching at a resolution your monitor doesn't like. Try editing the config file to specify a resolution that your monitor/video card/game all have in common as a supported res. I know when I try to output low resolutions to my PC hooked up to my TV I get nothing. I have to run 1024 or higher to get any picture at all.

    find the cd and reinstall it. Just remember to not uninstall maps. If you dont have the cd then find a war3 torrent then im sure there is a cd key gen torrent somewhere.

    Also, make sure your version of WCIII is fully updated, sometimes there's a bug with a specific piece of hardware that gets ironed out in later versions. Always check for patches.

    check that your graphics/sound card drivers are up to date then try again

    just make sure that there are drivers installed for both (if they need them, some dont). If not visit the manufacturers website to download.
