do you have the vanilla version (without any user mods) installed? and which version exactly are we talking about?

You might need to update your video card drivers and/or install DirectX 9.0c (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109).

how do check to see what version is the game

The version number shows in the corner of one of the startup screens (I think it is the menu screen). There are a lot of patches for this game, you probably need one. You should get the Hearts of Iron Collection as the expansions for the game are really necessary patches. The game does not require much from your system so your video card should be OK but try start - run - dxdiag

If there are still problems after your patch, I would check your video card. Maybe it needs a higher version of pixelshader? (1.0,2.0,3.0,...)
I had that problem in another game, where the terrain was white because my video card didnt support that version of pixelshader.
