# HARD DRIVE: 40 GB 4200 rpm
# CD DRIVE: DVD/CD-RW combo drive
# BATTERY: 6-cell lithium ion
# WIRELESS: Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG WLAN (without Bluetooth)

I used to have one of those lappies.. specs are fine for that game, xp/win98 compatibility is the key

first, and easiest thing to try is win98 compatibilty mode

r.click the program icon>compatibility tab>select win98

Download the 1.2 Patch (http://www.blackflystudios.com/SiegeOfAvalonPatch+Interface20.zip). It usually fixes the pink screen bug.

Thanks I have tried both and now have a new problem. After starting the game and exiting the story intro, a window pops up titled 'Failure' List index out of bounds (255). Any ideas?

Could you copy/paste the exact error message? Ctrl+c and Ctrl+v will grab and dump what is in an error window.
