I as well have been struggling for years with this problem. Luckily, I just found out the following solution.
Using the latest driver, version 188.8.131.529, and Windows 7 x64, do the following:
Right click on Desktop
Select Screen Resolution
Click Detect (with no additional monitor connected)
Next to your first display, you'll see a grey square with the text "Another display not detected"
Click on the grey square
Next to "Multiple displays" it will say "No display detected"
Click on "No display detected"
A drop-down menu will appear
Select "Try to connect anyway on: VGA"
Click on your primary display (the square with the big "1" in it)
Next to "Multiple displays" select "Extend these displays"
Hit the Apply button and start Red Alert 2 and/or Yuri's Revenge. With me, this solved the problem.
Don't forget to set the Power Saving on Maximum Performance in the Intel Settings screen (in Display Properties, don't forget to choose Advanced Mode) !
Hope this helps!

Same Problem Here.
Just got a brand new HP Pavilion DV6 with I7 Core with the intel HD 3000 and a Radeon GPU but no RA2 or Yuri.
Tiberian Sun and Firestorm have the same problem.
No Buttons on the start up screen.Have done al that was written here but no luck.
Please help Intel
nailed it!!! change your color settings true color 32 bit to high color 16 bit.
Open game in windowed mode, create a shortcut to game and add -win
"C:\oyun\Red Alert 2\RA2MD.exe" -win
that solved my menu problem.
If it works for you too plz reply your experiences so our fellow comrades can fight for Soviet Union once again.
