solitaire collection display problems



When I open the app on my HP nx9420 with an ATI x1600 graphics card, the programs opens up fine. Then when I click on any game like "Spider" the display becomes all pixelated and I can not read the screen.


It's probably something to do with my graphics card but everything other program using Windows 8 works fine.
