Sounds like your friend has removed the system partition. go into the bios and make sure that cd rom is selected as the first item to boot to

Hello,

Thanks for using fixya.

My name is Carlo.

Your computer might not pass the system requirements that's why it has an error. Or, you can try installing it one more time and check if it will work. Computers do mess up sometimes.

Here's the system requirement of SIMS 3:

Desktop PC (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Desktop PC (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Laptop (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

Laptop (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 2 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

IF your computer does not pass the system requirement, then you cannot play sims3 in your computer.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya

I reinstalled windows xp now i cannot hook up to


The yellow ? indicate the various device drivers that was not installed, which would include the LAN card and or wireless card. That is why you are not connecting to the Internet.
You need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers: -

My laptop was need to activation


A Compaq Presario 700US doesn't have the hardware to run Vista.
1.Processor: AMD Duron processor that operates at 900MHz

2.Ram Memory: 256MB of PC133 ram memory, (SDR Sdram that operates at 133MHz)
3.Graphics: VIA S3 Integrated graphics chip

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00255264&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=95525

Your laptop will run Windows XP, but I would advise upping the ram memory amount to the maximum, for the best Windows XP experience. That would be 384MB of ram memory.

Change to Windows XP? Sure. Just buy the full installation disk of Windows XP. (About $95 US online)
Be sure to go into your BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options set the first boot device to CDROM.

Whoever tried to put Windows Vista on that laptop, didn't know what they were doing. That laptop Will Not run it!

Can we install windows xp on compaq v3424 au laptop


If your laptop meets the following requirements then there shouldn't be a problem:

PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended

128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)

1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*

Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor

CD-ROM or DVD drive

Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device
I would take a system restore point BEFORE you upgrade and make sure you back up everything BEFORE you attempt an install/upgrade.

Hope this helps.

I am sorry but I have to say Vista is probably not the Operating System for your laptop. I decided to downgrade my Toshiba A135-S2276 to Windows XP (click here for an article about that) and it has been running 20 times better ever since. Windows Vista requires at least 2GB of ram, a fast processor and a good graphics card to run correctly, you'll be happier with XP.
