Can you give us some more details to work with? (System specs, graphics driver version)

Is this a new problem or has it always been like this? Have you made any system changes recently?

That might be a problem. DMC 3 is a fairly new game. From memory Geforce 4 cards don't even have shaders. Period. 99% of all new games use at least shader model 2.0.
Without shaders the card is unable to apply textures etc. (It varies from game to game) to the models.

Try running though the First Steps.
That will provide you with links on how to install newer graphics drivers and update your DirectX. To update the game there should be a support link within the actual game itself.

If you do all that and still see nothing but blackness, make sure that all the graphics settings in the game are set down as low as possible.

If you still have problems you might want to start looking for a new graphics card. Even if you do manage to get the game to show something, it won't be pretty. Not on the ol' Geforce 4's.
