Is this a machine you've upgraded to Win 10? If so, have a look at Settings to see what might need tweaking. I'd also suggest doing a System File clean up. The upgrade uses a fair amount of space on your C drive but, you can manually clean the bumph left behind off your machine. If your notebook has a small amount of memory, this might be a sensible move.
I've noticed from trying to upgrade my Win 8 tablet that, even though I've inserted additional memory, getting the upgrade to use that 2nd section fully appears to be problematical. Consequently, the majority of the upgrade happens using my C drive. If you have added additional memory (and you've not done so already) I'd suggest uninstalling P+C from your C drive and re-installing it on the other.
Assuming you're using a mouse rather than a touch screen pen, are you able to right click the game icon and open 'Properties'? If so, I'd suggest using the Compatibility Wizard to see what it recommends as the best option. Once you can get the game to open, you can adjust the screen resolution to what suits your notebook (from a limited range).
I've upgraded to Win 10 on my Win 7 machine and can advise that I have no problem with running and playing P + C.
Chances are you've already tried or know of these things - in which case I apologise for trying to teach you to suck eggs! But, if not, I hope the above suggestions give you some assistance.
