Default Windows 2003... and gaming..

Yah well the problem is.. that some games.. for example Airport Tycoon 3... and Settlers 4 wont start for sum reason, what happens is when i go 2 open the game i here the game startup music playing but my monitor just like kinda goes black, thier like lights on it that show when ur adjusting it and what not... and they are all blinking when the monitor goes black... so yeah im just wondering what the problem could be?
