Sounds bad
the contacts for the carts may be worn
get a credit card, cloth and head cleaning fluid.
put the cloth around the card and a few drops of liquid and push in to the slot and clean the contacts.
make sure none are bent out of place.
if cleaning won't help then you may need to open up and look at the contacts for dry joints; a blob of solder may help.
failing that you may need to look on ebay for a replacement console (you won't need the leads so it shouldn't cost more than a tenner including postage)

The cartilage reader had broke on my Nintendo 64 console. What can I do about this problem then.


Well the same thing had happened with me not too long ago. You could buy a new N64 console then from Luke games and just games or DK oldies. Make sure you get the 4.5 mm game bit tool to open the console up and you can change the cartilage reader from the new one to the old one like I did. Or you could get your old N64 console fixed somewhere then or find someone to fix it. Just buy a new one like I did.

Im over 50 years old. I don't understand a lot about my tablet. I only use it to email my daughter & play games. What is Router settings? Please


A router is the box that connects you to your broadband. The Tablet is possibly asking you to allow it to connect to your broadband, probably by the Wifi settings. And of course it can't connect. So you will have to access your broadband Router settings to allow it.

Serial number for fifa manager 11 saying its invalid


I've also had this, I think since they have brought out Fifa Manager 13 or planned to they seem to have dumped all the serial authorisation codes at solidshield for fifa manager 11 or something - currently in the process of trying to get it sorted with EA online help - which I'd suggest you try through the EA website but expect a long delay in answering. So far all they have done is given me the digital version of the product - which wasn't what I was having difficulty with, Origin recognises the product code it is Solidshield which fails to authorise. Still awaiting further response from EA help (5 days of owning a game I can't play so far and have only received a 15% Origin discount off older games.) Brilliant...
