Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Instaling New Software

I purchased a game called "Word Games To Go" and can't seem to get it installed properly. When I run the setup, I get 3 different options for Pocket PC (either Pocket PC-Casio, Pocket PC-Compaq, or Pocket PC-HP). I know that obviously the Dell Axim is too new to be included in this list but I figured that one of them must work on the Axim. Nothing on the package indicated those three brands only, it stated that it worked with both Pal and Pocket PC Handhelds, so I assumed it should work with the Axim. I followed the installatoin procedures, installing it into the Pocket PC My Documents folder, then did a synch. But the game will not show up on my Axim anywhere. Anyone have any ideas for what I might be doing wrong?

Don't know about that software specifically, but of those 3 choices, try the Compaq. The Axim's processor is backwards compatible with the one in the Compaq. (Well, it's the same as the one in the LATEST model HP, but usually when you see those three choices, it's to signify the 3 different processors each had. HP's latest model used the same as the Compaq, but their older models didn't..) Hopefully they aren't checking for specific devices, but just processor type.. Now, there is some software that is written specifically for the Compaq Ipaq because of it's video chipset, but not much.. (Tomb Raider comes to mind)..

Running Warlords 2/3 on Vista or Windows 7

After noticing a sharp increase in request for help on the matter I decided to write this.

These are the most common problems with both Warlords games.


1. Wont install on either OS
2. Installs but wont run.
3. Installs, runs, but doesn't display properly


1. Is your OS 64-bit? then your fresh out of luck as neither game is designed to run on a 64bit system and if it does run, is probably going to be highly unstable.
If not then you could try one or all of the following;
-Right-click the setup and run as administrator
-change the compatibility to XP or Windows 2000
-Copy the entire CD's contents to a folder on the desktop then run the setup.
-All of the above at once.

2. Once again you can try all the above instead applying them to the shortcut or exe for the game. You should as a matter of course ensure that your drivers are up to date if you have problems running the game.

3. If you get around the above two problems and run the game only to find that graphics are missing (generally the biggest problem), then there is only two real solutions to the problem:
-1: Try reinstalling the game, or use a friends copy.
-2: run the Direct X setup off the Warlords Cd, as this contains Direct X files designed for games run on this engine.

Hopefully the above helps someone to make one of these awesome games run.

Over and out,

Right click on the executable file that starts the setup, typically setup.exe. Select Properties. Under Compatibility, set it to Windows XP SP3. If that doesn't work, it really won't work without you setting up a virtual machine and installing a copy of XP. If you're running Windows 7, you can download a Windows XP virtual machine to run. It's called XP Mode. Instructions can be found by searching for XP Mode in the Start menu's Help and Support.

I just bought it for my son. We have done the initial set-up and we inserted the game disc but it doesn't play?


To play a game on PC, you need to pass few bunch marks.

  1. The Game should be Properly installed and registered.
    If the Game is not installed into Computer yet, Please insert the Game Disc. There will a setup file (Installer) to install the game. Many commercial games requires registration before we could play the game.

  2. Your PC must meet the hardware resource requirements for the Game.
    Many Games are Resource intensive. Many need extra hardware resources like a Good Graphics card, Physical Memory (RAM) etc.
    Many games will specify their minimum hardware configuration required to play the game smoothly, on their Disc Packs.

  3. Your Game and Operating System should be Authentic
    If your game disc is not authentic or legal, Operating System will prevent the game from running. The same will do for the Operating Systems also.
    So if you got the Disc illegally, you may need to crack or patch it run.

  4. Auto running Feature should be turned on.
    Many Operating Systems features Auto Running the Disc. That is, if you put the disc on computer, it will run automatically without any user interactions. If your Current Operating System does not have Auto Running Feature (Many new Operating Systems have this feature and its set to On by default) or its set to disabled mode, you can browse the disc and run it manually.
    You can find the executables in the Disc to run the game. Usual Autorun executables have name one of Installer, Autorun, setup.

  5. Your Anti-virus may interrupt the game.
    If you have an anti-virus software, then it may interact with the game's normal play and stop it from playing. This is due to the fact that, many Anti-virus Software mistakenly think the game as a virus and stop it from running.
    So if you have an anti-virus software, please set it to Game Mode or Disabled Mode

I can not install Boggle on a Vista system

You could try to rightclick the setup.exe, select properties, go to compatibility and run it in Win95 compatibility. You can also try to make a shortcut to the game, then doing the above. There could also be a map called DIrectX on the disk. Try opening the executable in there, install DirectX, then try the game again.
Otherwise you're out of luck. Microsoft doesn't support old games, gets you to buy new ones. I don't like it either, but there's nothing you can do about it but switch back to Win95

I cant Play online

Make sure both the game and system software are updated. The game will prompt you to update when you first start the game. To update the PS3 Software, go to the [Settings] menu and select [System Update]. Then give it another go.

Guitar hero WT not loading anymore new game and console in excellent condition all other games work fine totally puzzled?

If there was any software installed when you played the game the first time, delete it and reinstall. You don't have to delete any of your saved data, just the software the game installed. I've had to do this on a couple of games before. Also, try disconnecting from your network. I hope this helps.

My Mac won't run Call of Duty 4

Run Software Update and update your Mac OS X.
Apple releases updates for Mac, like Vista and Service Packs, but Mac uses Mac OS X 10.5.X and X is the patch.
Usually you wont see any changes because they are security fixes
