and all my other games still work and ive been through the useless help files that came with the game.

I think Black and White is a pre-XP game, so you may have to run it in compatability mode (fight-click on desktop icon, select Properties then Compatability tag)

User FAQs for the game can be found here click here

Hi, You could try this link click here and maybe check out the tech support as there could be a hundred and one reasons why it wont run, it works ok for me on my similar system with geforce 4mx 440.
Great game by the way.

Find the game files then right click on the .exe file which starts the game,cant remember which one as i have uninstalled the game recently,and click send to/desktop then locate the shortcut on your desktop and use that to start the game.
