Play Windows 95 Game On Vista


It there any way i can get my theme park game for windows 95 working on my laptop that is windows vista? I love this game, and want to play on it again but when i click on the file to start the game it says this system does not support full screen mode. Is there anything i can do?

Answer:- a lot of programs from 95/98 won't work, even with compatibility for the relevant os enabled. In those cases pretty much the only answer is to use a program called dosbox, dos box emulates a dos environment, its a free open source program. It's guaranteed to work for any game or program that will no longer work on nt based windows and above: http://www.Dosbox.com/

Pc Freezes When Play Ut2004 Game

I did a clean install of xp32, installed and updated all the drivers fine, avoided installing the swe ide driver for the nvidia chipset, and the comp is running smooth. Whenever the pc reaches 100% cpu usage, it takes a while to drop down, and the pc gets super laggy. The main problem happens when i try to play ut2004, w/ all the settings cranked up. The main menu loads fine, but after about 30 seconds, everything gets laggy. The mouse even lags like ***. If i don't exit out, the pc freezes. I remember when i first upgraded my comp to this setup, i played ut all the way cranked up just fine. Also hl2 all the way. I don't know what happened since then that caused this problem. I defragged my hdd, ran antivirus. I tried testing both sticks of my 512 ram, that's not the problem. I tried switching around the psu cables so there's nothing else attached to the wires that's attached to my gfx cables. I tried using forceware coolbits2 to make the 2d and 3d clockspeeds the same. The only thing i didn't try yet was changing my psu. My 400w antec is 20 pin, but my mobo takes 24 pin. But i plugged in the 4pin ez-plug on my mobo, which is what users of 20pin psu have to do.

Computer Shuts Down When I Play Online Game

I have a problem that i dont know the source. I am running windows xp pro, athlon xp 2400, 512mb ram, and plenty of space on harddrive. When i play this online game, (conqueronline.com. Au), my comp always shuts down in the middle of the game. However, if i do normal surfing or play single-player game, watch movies, on my comp, it's fine. Does anyone know what might be the problem? I am suspecting that my motherboard could be the source of the problem, but not sure!

Nwn / Driver Issues - Stuttery Game Play

I've been messing with this one for a while. Some times when i play neverwinter nights i get stuttering game play. As if my graphics card is running at 10 fps. Some times it's perfectly fine, as if there's no problems. This is the only game it does this in. Updated the driver once when the problem started happening with the last update of nwn to the newest whql from the nv web site. My gut instinct says it's the game's last update that did it. Any suggestions? The void may know more about this one.system specs:

Screen Keeps Flashing When Watch Movie Or Play Game

While trying to watch a movie or play a game at night my screen keeps flashing it seems to only happen when the aircon is on it is kinda hard to click on anything when the screen recovers as once i click on an icon its starts the flashing again the memory and other devices have been checked and fine but the last thing is the graphics card. I have a nvidia fx5200 128mb old i know and before i attempt to change it i would like to know if anyone else has come across the same issue in my past computer i had a nvida fx5500 that also given me problems but in a different manner. So again i am looking to hear if this has happen to anyone else and if they know of a fix because if it turns out to be the card that has had problems i have another 14 computers to sort out.

Unable To Play Max Payne Game - System Hangs

No accelerator card, although the graphics card is sis (inbuilt) and so is the sound card. I used to play max payne earlier and have completed both the parts, but, now whenever i try starting it or any other game for that matter, my systems hangs, it is not able to run any games. Actually, i had left my system in my flat for sometime and when i took it back, i discovered that the ram was broken and the socket was also a bit faulty, due to which (once i changed the ram), whenever i used boot. I would not get the post beep and when i would re-start my pc, then i would get it, (sometimes it used to happen that i would have to re-boot my system 2-3 times to hear the post beep!). Sometimes it also happens that, on switching on my system the post beep would come, but there would be no display on the screen. I know the game can run without a 3d acclelerator card.computer specifications:

Total Loss Of Control - Computer Freezes When Play Game

I just recieved a new computer and it seems to do normal things like desktop work or internet browsing fine, but if i try to play a game, it locks up. I do not over clock anything. When it does this, there is a total loss of control, the sound goes into a loop, and the only thing i can do is a hard shutdown. It did this with everquest2 within the first 10 to 15 mins. I lowered all the graphics way down, and it then happened while zoning my character in. The computer came with age of empires 3, so i tried that. It lets me play for maybe 20 minutes and then would do it. Now, it will not even get past the intro movie. I installed the drivers for an amd dual core processor on a 32 bit windows system from amd and this did not help. I reduced the power management settings to the minimal settings per amd's website. I did all the windows updates it would give me, i upgraded dot net to 2. 0. I upgraded directx to the newest version 9c. I ran the dxdiag and it didnt show any issues. I ran a memory test using the windows program and it did 2 passes with no errors. The video cards were set for crossfire mode when i recieved it. I have tried to install the most recent radeon driver for xp multimedia edition with no luck. Right now i have set it back to the driver that came with the cards, which says it is 8. 24. I tried one of the omega drivers too, and it had no effect (was 6. 7 i believe). I tried updating the sound driver because the sound was looping during the freeze, and that didnt help so i installed an audigy gamer card and disabled the onboard sound. This gave me the same result so i uninstalled it. I called the tech support and he said it sounded like a video or hard drive issue and wanted me to try one card at a time, moving them to different pci-e slots and seeing if it would happen then. I tried each card alone in each slot and age of empires would go for about 20 mins and then freeze. (One of the pci-e slots looks slightly warped, but even if i dont have a video card in there, it still freezes, and i was also able to play agoe of empires for 20 mins with a card in that slot) i have tried playing with the side cover off and a fan going as well to see if it was heat related. The cards seem to hover in the 45-51 degrees.computer specifications:

Dual Monitor - Watch A Movie And Play Game At Same Time

I was wondering if there was any way for me to be able to play a full screen game like counterstrike source, and watch a movie with an s-video plug on my tv at the same time. I tried it and when the game loads on my main monitor while the movie is running on my tv, the movie re-adjusts itself and doesn't fit onto the tv correctly (a part of the video is cut off). Am i doing something wrong, or is it not even possible to do this?

System specs are:

Athlon xp 3200+
1gb pc 3200 ram
Radeon 9800 pro video card.

Play Gears Of War Game On Asus Eah4350 Silent

Can you play gears of war game on a asus eah4350 silent/di/1gd2 pci-e graphics card - 1gb?

Answer:-
However the asus hd4350 isn't that powerful. Even with the healthy 1gb of ddr3 memory its 800mhz memory clock and 64bit memory interface wont allow it to run this game at anything higher than 1024x768. It will run at 1280x1024 however it wont be playable and 1024x768 is a fully playable resolution

What i tend to do with demanding games like gears of war is tweak the detail and resolution settings, best thing to do is lower the resolution to 1024x768 and all detail settings to minimum/low then run the first chapter and check how playable the game is at those settings. If they are fine then slowly higher the detail and run again. You have several options open to you for example run at low resolution and higher detail or higher the resolution and stay with lower detail also run the frame rate utility "fraps"( http://www.Fraps.com/ ) which will allow you to monitor the frame rate at each settings

Bare in mind 25fps is a smooth and playable frame rate so use this as a reference rate, however 20fps can also be playable, it depends on the game.

Keyboard Works In Windows Xp Pro But Not In Windows Vista

After cleaning up my hard drive yesterday, my keyboard would not work in vista ultimate 64bit. I tried 2 other keyboards. Neither of which would work either. 2 were ps2 keyboards and one was usb. Now, each keyboard was identified at post and would work in the bios. Now here is the really weird part. I decided i would go ahead and do a fresh intall of vista, as i was about due for it anyway. Just in case. I also cleared cmos just in case i somehow change something in the bios that was causing this (though i doubt it since the keyboard worked in bios). So, i reinstalled vista, and was able to use the keyboard to put in the activation key. So, i thought i was all set. However, once windows fully booted, none of the keyboards would work again. How is it possible that this problem carried over to a fresh install?

At this point, i became very frustrated. I decided to try installing windows xp pro. The xp installed, and now all of the keyboards work perfectly in windows. This would be fine, but i've got use to vista now, and would prefer to use it. Anyone have any idea what this might be? Could it have anything to do with installing vista too many times, so it started to disable functions.

Locate the program icon, right-click click run as administratorĚ. B. When the uac message is displayed game in administrator, do one of the following:

I. If you are logged on as a standard user, or if uac is configured to always require credentials, enter the appropriate administrative credentials, and then click ok. Ii. If you are logged on as an administrator and uac is not configured to always require credentials, click yes to start the application. Proceed with the installation and check if that solves the issue. Also make sure you have the latest updates for the game installed on your computer. Method 2: install the game in a new user account

Create a new user account and check if the issue recurs in the newly created account. If the issue does not persist in the new user account, it could indicate that your old user account is corrupted. Access the link below and follow the steps to repair the corrupt user profile:

Usb Game Controllers Problem On A Windows Xp Machine

Iím having some problems with some usb game controllers on a windows xp machine. First off iíll start by saying both controllers work fine on other machines tested them, both on two different machines(one was xp, one was server 2003). The first controller is a saitek p2550 and when plugged into this particular computer it works fine other than the z-axis is stuck in the up position, the second controller (and the one i really want to get working) is a red octane ignition dance mat v3. 0. When plugged in 50% of the time it reports there is a problem with the device, the other 50% it registers a few delayed button presses then dies. I have the official saitek drivers for my gamepad, and the well there arenít any drivers for the dance mat, it supposed to be completely plug and play. - Iíve attempted uninstalling the drivers for both devices. - Iíve tried uninstalling my usb and usb2 host controllers(then scanning for new hardware to reinstall them)

- Iíve tried updating to the newest intel chipset software for my motherboard(asus p4p800)

- Iíve tried disconnecting every other usb device(and no i donít have both controllers connected at the same time)

Both come up as usb human interface devices and hid-compliant game controllers in the device manager, my other usb hidís work fine(mouse, scanner, webcam), just game controllers work wrong. Both show up correctly labelled in the game controllers view. Anyone have any ideas what else to try?

Windows Vista Hangs Sometimes

From time to time, and this doesn't happen every time, i would play a movie and the file would chug, the audio and video would stop, but the computer is still running fine for everything else, the audio would start up and the video would play catch up to the audio. After that the video would continue playing. This happens from time to time, but never in the same place twice. I turned off the indexing option, anti-virus is off, reinstalled the codec pack and even tried other codecs to the same result. Does anyone else have any sort of similar experience to this?

How To Get Windows 7 Free On Vista ?

Answer:- do you want to know how to legally do it? If so, you can go to school that utilizes the the msdn academic alliance. A url for more info has been posted under sources. Additionally, you can become a registered microsoft partner. You have to pay for the partnership, but you get access to a plethora of free softwares and training. So, technically you're still getting windows 7 for free, but paying for the partnership. I will also submit a link under sources for the partnership. There was one other option that manufacturers were giving for vista systems purchased within a certain time frame, however manufacturers are no longer giving free windows 7 to people who made the purchase within the time frame because the final date was, as i recall, january 21st ish. Your last way to get it free is to obtain it illegally and i wouldn't recommend doing that. I also provided a link detailing software piracy and the law with which it is associated.

Windows Vista Inf Problem

My pc is running on windows vista and i recently bought an epson sx115 printer/scanner/copier, when i came to install it like the booklet said it would get to the scanner driver part of the setup and a message would pop up ''epson scan setup - an error occurred during setup, restart your pc then run the setup again'' which i have done about 5 times. So then i tried to install the scanner through the device manager, it finds the drivers and starts to install them when another message pops up ''windows encountered a problem installing the software for your computer - the required section was not found in the inf''

The printer and copier work fine, its just the scanner!

I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling, different cables, different software and i have even took the printer back saying it was faulty. And still nothing!

Windows Vista Startup Problem

In the past couple of days it seems that every night when i go to turn off my computer. It does its normal stuff. It installs the updates then turns off. The problem is that around 7 o clock in the morning when i turn it on it just keeps loading the windows vista bar at the bottom. Usually it only does 2 passes then it starts up but it will do this for up to an hour! Well, anyway i built the computer and everything. I will give you some specs. Intel pentium dual core e 5200 @ 2. 8ghz

2gb corsair ddr2 800 xms2

Gtx 260 graphics

80 gb hitatchi deskstar 80gb ide hd

Coolermaster 310 elite case. Msi g31 p21 board

Coolmax 600watt powersupply

Windows vista (red) ultimate 64 bit

When i had windows xp installed this was never the problem. However it took quite some time to boot all of the time. Then, it seems as if i wiggle around the molex connector (4 pin) going into the hard drive, and wiggle the ide cord the computer will boot up. I do not know that the problem is here. I would rather get new cables than a new hard drive.

Windows Vista Freezes At Logon

Info: i have a dell inspiron 530 desktop, and i have had it for almost 3 years now. I have had internet for almost a year now, too. And it's a windows vista home premium

Problem: one day, i clicked on word, and an "error" came up saying something like, "word.exe has been executed because it has a virus. Do you want to block this?" Something very similar to that. Anyway, so since i couldn't open word, i decided to open something else. The exact same "notification" on my toolbar where the "start" is came up again. So that told me that nothing was opening. So i decided to restart the computer. It started up, and it was at the logon screen. So i (tried) to move the mouse pointer onto my logon screen name, but as i did, i noticed that the pointer wasn't moving, but the light on the mouse was going brighter as it always does when i move it. So i tried to use the keyboard arrows to go to my name. That didn't work. Also, the num lock light wasn't on, as it always is. So, the keyboard and mouse was plugged in but the computer wasn't detecting it apparently. The mouse was working, just not on the computer. The keyboard wasn't really working cuz i couldn't press ctl. Alt. Del. For it to do anything. So it literally freezes at the logon screen. Because of that, i can't shut it down properly. So i just switch the light switch to off, which turnes the whole machine, everything, off. I waited for about 10 minutes, then pressed the power button on the cpu. It went to this screen: http://www.Sky-unlimited.com/error/pic3.jpg and since i can't use the keyboard, it just starts windows normally. Now i can press f13 or f2 for startup options and all that, except, i just don't know if that's gonna fix anything. So basically my questions are:

1) do i have a virus? (I don't have antivirus. If i did/do, it was a trial that was already on there)

2) what can i do to fix it?

3) i haven't backed it up, or restored to a previous time. Will i lose information if it gets fixed?

If you have any good information about this, please please let me know by commenting/answering. P. S. I am at a library asking this question since my computer isn't working.

Keyboard Error: ( Code 39 ) On Windows Vista

I just popped vista back onto my computer (32-bit) to use, having heard of improved support for it. However, my keyboard shows up as "standard 101/102-key or microsoft natural ps/2 keyboard", and has "windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)" in the status box. Location states it as "plugged into keyboard port". The funny thing is, it worked fine the first few boot-ups, and now the keyboard does nothing in windows but works fine all the way up to the loading-bar splash screen when windows begins to load (after post and all that). I'm convinced this is some sort of driver issue or conflict, but i've tried reinstalling the default driver and enabling/disabling the keyboard, without any result. Does anyone know what to do? I don't want to just reinstall vista again, because this could easily recur since i have no idea what even caused it .

Installing Windows Vista Via Flash Drive

No tweaking, no fking around, no program installs - put the dvd in the drive, put the flash drive in the usb port and run the command. Thats it. The rest of this post is purely there because people always try and do something differently, or dont bother reading the instructions properly!

This does not work with xp, so dont ask.command for copying vista (or 7) dvd to flash drive

Open a run command - use the "windows key + r" trick to open a run menu, if its not enabled in your start menu

Xcopy x:*. * /S/e/f y:

X: being source (dvd / iso image on virtual drive)
Y: being destination drive (flash drive)

A dos prompt will open and show the files copying - it may appear to have stopped on a file (install. Wim i think), but dont worry - thats a large file so it takes a while. You can use this to install vista off a flash drive, no longer needing a dvd. Above this line is all you need to make a bootable flash drive!

As simple as this is, people always ask a bazillion questions.common ones are answered below. The drive letters x: and y: need to be substituted with whatever letters your system uses. Its obvious, but some people still miss that. I've done this with ntfs and fat32 flash drives heaps of times - havent burned a dvd for an os in years. Your motherboard is going to need to boot from usb for this to install. Many motherboards have a "quick boot" method by pressing escape or f8 while the bios post screen is still loading. Dont always assume it will show as a usb device, often it shows under the hdd menus. Obviously, you're going to need a dvd in the drive, or mount the iso via some virtual drive software, like deamon tools or virtual clone drive. If your flash drive is full, the dos prompt will just close without copying the last files. Make sure you have enough free space to fit the contents of the iso (a 4gb flash drive is not exactly 4gb - mine is 3. 83gb after formatting, and too small for a vista sp2 install). I suggest formatting and starting with a blank flash drive - you can always add your other files back afterwards. You can do this from any windows os - xcopy hasnt changed in a looooong time, so it should even work in os's as old as win95. Since this has to be clarified, i mean you can make the vista/7 bootable usb disk in older os's. That is not the same as making bootable copies of them!

And a picture guide, for those who cant live without them. 1.command line

2. Format flash drive to ntfs (16gb drive)

3. Files copying

4. Open your boot menu in the bios, or change the boot order. My media pc allows me to hit f12 and get this:

(If i had my flash drive plugged in for this photo, it would read as "usb-hdd imation nano" in the '+hard disk' menu)

5. Run the vista/7 installer as normal

Out of niceness, i quote pyeti and naelex's alternate method. This one is rather noob friendly, but requires a third party program. This method works for xp!

Code:

Plug in your usb key. Right click on the ultraiso shortcut, and click on run as administrator. Click on file (menu bar) and open. Navigate to your windows 7 iso file and select it and click on the open button. In the bottom local pane, select your usb flash key drive. Click on bootable (menu bar) and wite disk image. Make sure the locations are correct, and check the verify box and click on the write button. Click on yes to confirm writing to the usb drive. When it's done, click on the close button. You now have a windows 7 installation usb flash key.

I7 Setup Reboots During Windows 7 / Vista Installation

I recently built the system xp 32 bit runs perfectly with no issues what-so-ever. If i try to install windows 7 64bit rc1 and/or vista premium 64 bit, the machine reboots. This is right after the "loading windows system files" screen. I have reseated ram, cards, cables. I've updated to the most recent bios, tried to install at stock settings, dummy oc on and off, broken down my system to bare-bones, ran memtest 86 for 6 hours. Temps on cpu during idle are around 30-32 degrees and under load don't get above 54 degrees. Ram timings are irrelevant as these are xmp sticks. (I've set them manually with no change). I installed vista on an old hard drive back in early april and it showed the age of the drive. I had a ton of issues. When i did install vista back then i did it with one stick on ram populated in the farthest dim from the cpu. This is the one thing i have not tried yet as i just got the dummy over-clock running stable, (8 hours running prime 95 with no issues). I just don't understand why i'd have to run this board with just one stick to get an os installed when the xp installation was so flawless. I've had a lot of issues and it may be due to this evga board. However i lack the time to properly trouble-shoot it with tech support. Any thoughts? Experiences? Ideas?

Dvd Drive For Vista 64-bit And Windows 7

I don't need anything fancy or expensive. I primarily use my dvd drive to install/play games and occasionally burn something to a dvd. It should be compatible with vista 64-bit and windows 7. Any recommendations?

Video Lag In Windows Vista X64

I just installed windows vista ultimate x64 on my pc and i've started experiencing lag from time to time in videos i try to watch. (By closing and reopening the video in vlc, it sometime plays normally (10% of the time)). Also, the sound of the videos seems to be ok, only the images lags behind at a less-than expected framerate. If i reboot my computer and the first thing i do in windows is open the video i want to watch, it plays fine 100% of the time. This didn't occur by using the 32-bit version of vista. I have a quadro fx 3400 graphic card and 4gigs of ram in a hp pavilion a6245n (quad-core 2. 4 ghz). Videos, in my opinion, shouldn't lag based on the computer i have. Do any of you have any idea what's wrong with my computer? I also want to point out that i have installed the latest driver for my graphic card and it didn't change a thing. Also, the sound of the videos seems to be ok, only the images lags behind at a less-than expected framerate.
