What game is it? sometimes your graphics hardware can stop games from working if you haven't got the right hardware. or sometimes it can be as simple as not having the right version of direct x installed on your computer. Check the requirements for the game on the back of the disk case then check that you have all of the recommendations that it asks for e.g. graphics card, direct x, harddrive space, 3d accelaration etc..

I installed the game, and when I put the disc in to play it, the main menu isn't even shown. The screen that says "Her" with the magnifying glass doesn't do anything, it just freezes. I can...

Here are a couple of ideas- I have played many of the Nancy Drew games, so hopefully something here will help you. First thing I would try is to not put the disc in to play. I think that you do not need the disc to actually be in the computer on this game. Some of the games will load the game twice if you have the disc in and then you can't play it at all. Another words that computer tries to load the disc and the game already installed, and it doesn't work well. So you might want to try that first. Also there is the uninstall and reinstall to try next. Did you check that you disc drive is compatible? If you are playing on an older computer, check that you have a dvd drive-newer computers do. Also do you have enough ram and a fast enough processor? If you look on the package, it will tell you the game requirements, another words what type of set up you need in order to run the game. I would guess that you do have the right requirements, and one of the first two suggestions will fix it. Good luck!

Just bought call of duty 4, installed it, when i try to play it says my video card does not support. can you help me? can i download the video card i need to play?

It only works on mid range graphics cards (the hardware iside your PC) so unless you have a supported card then it won't play, and you'll need to upgrade.
What graphics card have you got? right click my computer- click properties then go to device manager and it will tell you under video adapters.

Sims 3 does not work when i play

did you buy the game or did you just download from a site. if you bought it then it sould be working. If you downloaded it go to the sims 3 website tell them that your game isn't working and tell them what is wrong with the game and see what they will do about it they could even give you a new game. If you bought it either do the same thing or lower the quality of the game if you can even get the game to show up

Sometimes computers with large hard drives crash quickly,or suffer registry problems. Try down loading a registry repair program.and also check and make sure the Direct X is properly working.
