Help Me Get This Going Please (Semi-Newb)

So I originally got Chankast and was directed to NullDC. I've used PSX emulators like ePSXe, so plugin-based emulators aren't new to me... But this program and dreamcast emulators are. I have the bios, they are both named correctly, and in the correct folder.

Problem when I ran Chankast was that it would show me the dreamcast loading splash screen type kind of thing with the swirly-deal, but the color would be really ugly... just like black and gray. Then it would go to a light blue screen and not do anything but feed me crappy sound. Using Windows Vista by the way.

So I get NullDC, thinking it might be a Vista problem. Now I start to hear the sound of the loading, sound isn't too great, but worse problem is video.. which doesn't show at all. Just black screen.

I'm using whatever default plugins the program comes with. I know with ePSXe, that would never fly and you need a whole arsenal of plugin files before the emulator is worth anything.

What should I be using?

My video card isn't exactly a fancy pants video card to begin with, but I wouldn't say it's old. I run just about any playstation game I want to, so I don't see why DC wouldn't work. It's called "Mobile Intel (R) 965 Express Chipset Family," so that's not exactly AMD or the most popular gaming card
I think(so don't quote me on this) that that's pretty much as close to "no video card" that you can get these days, sadly.
I have an Intel graphics card in my laptop though and it ran Senko no Ronde with nullDC naomi great at like 80% speed... So I guess you should be able to play anyway.
