As it sits your computer doesn't quite meet the minimum specifications for
WOW.

One reason for the display blanking could be the game adjusting the display
resolution lower from your default desktop settings, another could be as
system RAM is being reassigned to the graphics adapter. To play WOW under
Vista you need to have 1024MB of system RAM but your computer shares its
system RAM with the graphics adapter, which leaves you with not quite enough
RAM left over to play the game. 32MB is the minimum graphics memory required
to run the game but the recommended amount is 128MB and WOW would use much
more if the memory is available. The more RAM that is set aside for the
graphics the less RAM left over to run the game or other software in. If
there is a setting to lock the amount of RAM being used by the graphics
adapter and you also add more RAM to the computer it could help a lot. On
the plus side for you, adding more RAM will improve the overall performance
of the computer, not just the one game. WOW also requires a Pentium 4, 1.3
GHz processor minimum. Your processor is fast enough but it is only a
Celeron so the game play (framerates, lag) may may not be all that good.

The driver version recommended by Blizzard for your Mobile Intel 965
chipset is 15.11.3.1576. That information might be out of date but even if
it is an older driver version it should at least be one that is known to
actually work with the game.
