Need for Speed Prostreet continue button after a race not functioning. After I complete a race the continue button stops working and I have to end the game. I am trying to play this game on Windows 8.1 and tried several things such as compatibility mode, install / reinstall to different drive, changed settings in game but still nothing works.

Funny story: Follow these instructions and your Continue button will work perfectly. I'm on my third career without one problem on Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit.
1) Open your Device Manager and highlight the Mice and other pointing devices section.
2) Start NFS Pro Street (it will not start with mouse disabled) and get to the Main Menu.
3) Alt+Tab over to the Device Manager and use your mouse to disable the mice listed under Mice and other pointing devices.
4) As soon as your mouse stops working, immediately Alt+Tab over to Need for Speed and play away. Your continue button will work flawlessly.
5) When you're done playing Alt+Tab back over to the Device Manager and your cursor will still be on the mouse option that disabled it.
6) Hit Enter to bring up the Properties window, hit Tab once to move it to the Enable Device button, then hit the space bar three times. Your mouse is back on.
7) Close the game with your mouse (just out of spite) and remember these few easy steps.
*Unplugging the mouse does not work, sadly.
Evidently there is some problem with the mouse on your desktop stealing focus in Windows 8, I noticed it when I had a mouse cursor in the game on my main screen and saw my desktop mouse cursor moving around on my second monitor at the same time. The two are out of sync somehow and it nerfs the works. This is working for me with Autosave on and off, cracked and non-cracked .EXE, with and without cheat codes, no Gameboost or whatever it is. I did it with both a Logitech gamepad and a Logitech steering wheel and pedals, it's all a matter of having the pad and buttons assigned the right way. After doing this twice, it takes less than fifteen seconds total to do and I get to play one of my fave racing games without worry.
Oh, as a sidenote, those of you having the login problems who bought the game cheap from Origin and downloaded it, I suggest a disc copy. I paid very little for mine and I don't have to log in to a thing. I can cancel the "Connecting to EA" message as soon as it pops without issue. Enjoy boys and girls!

want change language to spanish

Press the Menu button > Settings(Configuracion) > Locale (Configuracion regional). The language option should already be selected beneath 'Idioma'. Click it, and click English. Press the Done button on the lower right of the sidekick. When prompted, click Restart (Reiniciar). Hope this works.

i forget my privacy code

Well the easiest way is:
1: press menu and jump to enter emergency call
2: press and hold down menu button and while holding menu down,
press jump and back simultanously.you should enter the jump screen.
the end.

After u do that, if u wanna use the phone your gonna have to erase all the settings and do a master reset. Your going to need a tmobile sim card, and sidekick log in info to use the phone, which you should be able to get the login info by calling a T-Mobile CS agent.
Heres how u erase the flash and login info:

This is for the sidekick 2. It MAY work.

1) Remove your sim card
2) From the jump screen: Menu -> Settings -> System Info
3) Press Menu+Shift+X Select OK to clear the flash.
4) Press Menu+Shift+R Select OK to clear the login information.
5) Perform a hard reset now. This will reboot the device.
To perform a hard reset:

SK2 - Press the power button and reset button at the same time. Unit will vibrate when reset. You can use a paper clip or similiar to hit the reset button located behind the screen.

Good luck, hope that helped!
