Here's the fix I found for Windows 7. It will probably work on 8 too, but I have limited drive space on my Windows 8 laptop and have not tested it.

Go into the game folder (C>Program Files (x86)>Steam>steamapps>common>LEGO Harry Potter)

Right-click the LEGOHarryPotter.exe and select "Properties"

Under Properties, choose the "Compatibility" tab, check "run this program in compatibility mode for" and select "Windows XP Service Pack 2" from the dropdown

Also on the "compatibility" tab, check "run in 640x480 screen resolution"

I also have "run as administrator" checked under the "Compatibility" tab, just to be safe, though this may not be absolutely necessary. However, changing both the compatibility mode and the screen resolution were necessary in order to get it to run for me.

After doing this, I got a quick flash of the copyrights and a black screen and it minimized, I manually expanded it, and it played perfectly after that, so hopefully it also works for someone else.
