It's hard to tell without any line breaks what's you problem, but maybe 
you haven't installed PyGame properly? You could try to go to the 
Windows Command Prompt and run:

   C:\> python your_script_here.py

If that works, it means Python/PyGame is setup OK and it should work in 
Geany. If not, it probably means your Python/PyGame isn't installed 
properly (ex. PyGame isn't in Python module search path or such).
