I've had a few problems with my hard drive & it is being exchanged by the manufactuer. I have backed the hard drive using the back up facility in sytsem tools windows 2000. I have backed it up to another PC I have on a peer to peer network.
My question is this. After formating the new hard drive will I have to install the O/S or just restore the backed up file. I should mention that I did a "back up everything on my computer" back up & I'm unsure if that would back up the O/S as well.
Anyway do i just restore or load the O/S then restore.
Many thanks in anticipation.

Ok, this might sound a bit weird, perhaps sad even.I have just purchased Sensible Soccer for the princely sum of 1 from a local charity shop.I have installed it from the floppy disk but when I try and run the program it tells me I need at least 586k of RAM. I have 128Mb of RAM.Why does it not work? Is there any way I can get it to work or is the game just freaked out cos it is so old?Please help so I can relive my youth!

Okay, we have the Sims 2 discs here. It requires you to use the 1st cd to play the game. I want to know if there is any way in which you can play the game without the cd.

I got Alcohol 120% and tried the image making wizard. When the program starts "dumping" the cd onto the computer, so to speak, I just get error block after error block and it would take an hour or more to finish (when on the help section it walks you through and it only takes 2 minutes for a whole game disc). I set it all up the way the help section had it except for one thing. In which I forget. If you all know exactly how to do this...then plz let me know. If you need more info, let me know.

Hello

I seem to have a problem recording games using programs like fraps, this might apply to other kinds of recording but ive only found this problem so far.

I 1st tried fraps (granted it was the free version) i recorded a video file, i tried to play it back with windows media player but it stated the codec wasnt recognised. I gave up with fraps and tried another software for game recording. I found the same problem. However i installed both onto my laptop (my other PC) and it worked fine. i also realised that the problem was not that my desktop could not recognise the file, because when i transfered the video files that were created on the laptop to the desktop, they played fine, likewise the files created on the desktop would not work on the laptop. so the problem must be with the actual recording of the files?

I went to properties>summary of the video files i created using the software on the destop and noticed there is no frame rate or data rate. if thats helpful?

Also i ran 'dxdiag' there didnt seem to be any errors.

Im not at my own computer right now (internet is currently cancelled) so i can only give basic specs and may even be incorrect.

desktop:
3.6 ghz AMD
Geforce 6500?
1gig RAM

laptop:
3.0 ghz pentium
Radeon
512 MB RAM

I cant understand why game recording wont work on my desktop computer. I hope you can help.

Thankyou

I hope someone can help me troubleshoot this as it is driving me crazy! I have a dedicated PC (Win7 x64) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, but I can't fly at all at the moment because of this issue, unless I use the keyboard to input everything (not really an option!).

I load up the sim (FS2004) and start doing the normal 'game' preparations, but usually within ten minutes - it seems to be getting worse as time goes on - both my Saitek X52 joystick (USB) and my Belkin Nostromo N52 (USB) stop working, at the same moment moreover. I assumed it was a USB issue, though my keyboard and mouse still work just fine. Also, when I go into the Saitek Control Panel (where you test all the buttons and functions are working) everything responds as normal, it's just in Flight Simulator, my profile (that is, with what keyboard functions I have programmed all the buttons etc.) is unloaded and a default (I assume) takes over - the button I use to remove aircraft brakes now operates flaps instead; the 'hat' which changes views from exterior to interior now does nothing at all, and so on.The keyboard shortcuts I have programmed into the X52 and N52 still work if I input them via the keyboard instead.

In addition, the Saitek icon in the task bar changes to a blue circle and I cannot access any of the functions which are normally available there - clicking the blue circle does nothing. If I terminate the Saitek profiler process in Task Manager and unplug then plug the X52 back i... Read more

I am looking for some help with my Game Elements GGE909 Recoil Game Controller. I can get it to work and everything and have learned to not mess with the recoil while using it, however, it will randomly act up while I am in the middle of the game. It will act as though it was disconnected when it wasn't and Windows will tell me that it doesn't recognize it. To get it to work again, I have to restart the computer (typically twice) and then reinstall the software from the CD-ROM that was provided with the controller (which involves me unplugging the controller and plugging it back in when prompted and unplugging it when prompted). It is as troublesome as it sounds. When I reinstall it, I get a message that says something about the controller's software not being approved to work with Windows XP and to contact the vender in order to get software that is approved. What should I do and how should I do it?

However, because it isnt installed i cant play it obviously. But everytime i put in the install disk the computer thinks then doesnt open it. So i went to my computer and double clicked on the d drive which is where the disk was. It thinks again and then nothing shows up. So i view the readme and it says go to run and type in setup.exe and that doesnt work either. So i am out of ideas. I know my disk drive sounds like it doesnt work at all.

HI Omak2008 and welcome to Vista Forums,
Try this right click on my computer and select Manage then click on device manager, have a look if you can find DVD/CD-ROM drives in the list and check that it is working and that the drivers are installed correctly. If they are try right click on it and then uninstall, reboot the computer and let windows reinstall the hardware and see if that works. If you cant see a DVD/CD-ROM in device manager you may have a faulty drive or maybe a loose connection.

Hope this helps!

Hi there Jonathon. Sounds like to me you have a bad CD. Error 1305 is very common when the CD-ROM (or whatever you are using to read it) thinks the disk is corrupt. Try wiping your disk off to start. If that doesn't work, I would suggest burning the CD to a new CD or Copying the CD and running it from your harddrive. If you need assistance with any of the above let me know and I'll be glad to point you in the right direction. Let me know how it goes. If this doesn't work, I'll see what else I can do to help you out.

Hi
I have a game that comes with a product key that is used to activate it, I need to uninstall the game from my computer and re-install it at a later date. However the product key is only valid for 5 uses, I was wondering if it was possible to remove the game so that I can re-install it later without having to re-use my product key and lower my remaining uses. Is there any way to do this, any help will be most appreciated!

P.S. I am running windows 7 (if thats relevant)
 

Answer:Re-installing a game

Check with the vendor. If you uninstall the game, it is very likely it will leave licensing info intact.

Hey out there,

I came upon this site via Google and saw a "thread" from Brenda about the Legos Star Wars game and a graphic card that supports Pixel Shaders v1.1. I read some of the responses which prompted me to visit the Toshiba webpage. I downloaded the detailed specifications for my laptop but I still can't figure out if I have PCI card or AGP card port. I tried to put the information into the designated slots for the registration profile but there is not enough room. I am a Mom of a 10 yr old who was given this game for his birthday in June. I have just finally come upon this website mentioning the same problem. Our laptop is not very old, maybe 2 years. Any help in directing me where to look on these specs for the card info. I need would be greatly appreciated. I see it says expandability "1 PC Card slot support 1 Type II PC card". Is that what I'm looking for? Hey, I email and can find things I need on the web but games are beyond me. I'm just trying to see if I can get this Lego game working without having to buy a new computer.

Thanks for your time and comments.

Kathleen

I hope this is the right place to post this, if not: Sorry.
Just got my new laptop with vista, and I love it. Except for one thing: I have an old game I really want to install, but my pc refuses to follow my instruction.

The game is called Myst Uru: complete chronicles. Whenever I try to start the setup I get a blank window and the arrow that indicates that the pc is trying to load. And there it hangs. If I try to click on it, I get the error: Windows Explorer not responding. After a while the bottom bar (can't remember the correct english name for it) also stop responding. All I see is the circle arrow when I put the cursor over. I have to use alt-tab to shift between windows. Waiting some more, that also stops to function. When I open the cd to look at the files on it, several of them are without pictures. It's like the cd/dvd drive can't read it properly. (Opening the cd also makes my pc stop as descibed above.)

What bugs me the most is that older games than this, innstalles without problems.
And others have told me that they can use the exact same game on vista without any problems. That makes me wonder whay can't I:-). The cd it self seems to be ok, because I can install it without problem on my old laptop, and the cd have hardly been used.

As you probably have guessed, I'm not a pc expert, but if any are willing to try and help me I will be very happy. I do not know what you want of information so I have not included any here.

Answer:Problems installing old game

Probably a UAC issue - if you have the space, use the Vista Drive Manager to shorten your C: Drive partition, make a new partition (10-20 GB should be more than plenty) and then on that partition create a directory called "Program Files"

Now install to that new Program Files that does not have all the write permissions and such blocked by Vista, and see if it runs now or not.

Post back if you need more detailed instructions....

Or, conversely, you could simply install it to another directory on C:, such as C:\{name of game} or even C:\Users\{yourusername}\Downloads\{game name}

You just missed the last bit of the OS name, so I'm not entirely sure if you are running Windows NT or (more likely) Windows XP Home. It doesn't matter either way though. If you are running the latter, try running the game in Compatibility Mode to mimic Windows 9x. If it's the former then I'm afraid you're going to have to go back to 98 (2000 is actually a version of NT, designed mainly for businesses and doesn't run games - well, most of the time)

Hello, about month ago i bought new SSD, after installing win10 on it i noticed first that game like Overwatch crashes with error "run out of rendering memory" (i never had this error before installing ssd) then when i try to launch some games they just start and close after some time with no errors just closes and desktop becomes black screen with taskbar visible....

my pc specs:
AMD FX8350
RX470 4gb
8 gb ddr3 ram
SSD SanDisk 240gb
 

Answer:Game crashes after installing SSD

That's a nice processor and graphic card, but your gaming rig is being hindered by having only 8 of RAM.
I would add another 8 GB and run it with 16 GB.

---------------------------------------------------------------

I'm not a hardware/gaming expert, but I'm guessing your "run out of rendering memory" issue is associated with the graphic card driver.

Ok,

So now a new issue with my parents pc.

They have a Hp pavilion that has 256mb of ram.

Currently, my mom has basically all the zoo tycoons (2) on this pc. But when she goes to add the last one, the entire game freezes and she can't play.

We have windows XP as well by the way.

The game requirements for the one not working are as followed.

Windows xp-256 mb ram
processor 1ghz
Hard drive 600mb(plus space required for zoo tycoon 2)
Video card 32mb hardware T&LDirectX 9.0c or later

Now I know the prob is not the hard drive, because the other expansions for this game require like 900 and they work fine

Is it because I only have 256 mb of ram on here or is it something to do with my vid card

I don't know anything about the vid card accet that I just downloaded the driver for it called Intell Extreme Graphics Driver.

Well let me know what you guys think.

What is causing this error message?
 

Answer:Trouble installing game

There is no reference to an error of this sort at the website, I would suggest cleaning the CD and checking it for scratches.

When I go to install the game it gives me a propmt saying: D3DERR_NotAvailable
Can't create D3D device!

followed by a prompt saying:
Hotwheelsworldrace has caused an error in HOTWHEELSWORLDRACE.EXE.
Hotwheelsworldrace will now close.

The games requires a Pentium III or a AMD Athlon 600 mhz CPu and I am trying to load it on a Pentium Celeron and I was wondering if this might be the cause of the error or if anyone might have any others ideas as to the cause or possible solutions. Thanks for any help.
 

Answer:Problem installing game

from the microsoft site, D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE means "This device does not support the queried technique."

Its caused by DirectX. Looks like your video card can't handle DirectX.

What video card do you have?

That's life! Army11b for any dvd media you simply need a dvd drive. You can buy a good dvd burner for less then you often will on a new game! Take your pick! Newegg.com - $10 - $25, CD / DVD Burners, CD / DVD Burners & Media

I found that my computer cant install game demos that i download off sites that install using INSTALL SHIELD.....i try constantly but each time it gets to the same spot and freezes...it says configuring installer and sits there can someone help?
 

Answer:Installing Game demos

Thought I had the same problem, until I had to answer a knock at the door while it was at that point. When I got back after about 5 minutes, it had finished installing.

Might give it a few extra minutes and see if it works.

Just brought a copy of Pro Evolution Soccer, and have been having a lot of trouble with it. Firstly, my dvd drive appears to have broken and won't read any disks. So I decided to transfer all the contents of the disk onto a USB hard drive and then onto my computer. Set it up, but there was something I'd forgotten to do and uninstalled it.

Went to reinstall and got an error message that simply said "DLL load error". It didn't tell me what the specific error was, or give me any trouble shooting tips, just that and then "Install Shield Wizard failed to launch, try again later."

I have every file from the disk. The dll files are ISSetup.dll and DSetup.dll.

Answer:Installing game problem

The game is looking for rpcrt4.dll and can't find it. Try searching Google for rpcrt4.dll. Usually you'll find a site that offers the file for free. Once you have it, put it in the C:\Windows\system32 folder and see if that solves it.

I'm trying to install Pharaoh (1999) on my computer, but when I pop the CD in, the window to install comes up, I click install but it doesn't do anything. The window just closes and I got to reopen it. It shows the E: drive pie chart as full blue. So I'm not sure what's going on. I'm using Windows Vista if that helps.
 

Answer:Problems installing a game

Hi

Try using one of these alternate install methods. If none of them work, maybe your cd or dvd reader has conked out. If you have several drives, stick your cd in teh other ones. Or u can get an updated instalshield.

Alternative install methods:
- Click start/run, type in "e:setup" and press enter.
- click my computer and double click on the image of the disc.
- click mu computer, right click on the picture of the cd and click open. Then click on setup in the disc.
- go to control panel/add or remove programs and follow the instructions.

When I try to run the installer for Starcraft II I get an "unable to connect" error which suggests turning off my firewall. I get this message even when all of my anti-virus software is turned off. It also says I am missing Windows Service Pack 3, but when I tried to install that from the windows site it failed to install. Not sure if this is malware.

I am having difficulty installing an older game (Jack Nicklaus Golden Bear Challange) on my new computer, running Windows XP Home Edition.

The error message I keep getting is:

"An error has occured during the move date process: -46,6"

Here what I have done to try and resolve:

cleaned out temp file
cleaned out TIF files
copied CD to Desktop and run setup.exe from there
Googled 'move date process' and looked at every article - no joy

Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
 

Answer:Installing older game on Win XP

Have you tried compatability mode? Right-click the exe, hit properties, hit the compatability tab, and select the mode you want there.

You may want to move this topic, I'm not sure where exactly I should put this but basically what I want to do is simple, yet difficult (Due to lack of tutorials on Google)

What I want to do is download a game (I do own this game and I am only downloading it as a backup in case the original disc gets scratched, or breaks) and put it on 2 DVDs (The game is about 7 gb, and each DVD is 4.7 GB big) Can I compress the ISO image, or how would I go about putting it on 2 DVDs?

I have burned games before (THAT I OWN) But they all fit onto one DVD.


Thanks, TekBubs.

Answer:Installing a game on 2 DVDs?

You can create a split ISO image, or buy a DVD-DL to burn it onto.

Keep in mind the former option would require you to copy the files onto the comp and then combine the ISO back together should you want to install the game.
