    Does your drive read any other disks? And how did you uninstall. Did you use the add/remove programs feature?

    I think some versions of the game are on DVD. Make sure that you have the disc in a DVD drive if your is one of these.

    Have you tried a different disc?
    Is the disc scratched or dirty on the (shiny) side?

Well thts seems your cd is scrached or else unreadable, you can repair your cd  Scratches can be repaired with a disc repair kit, available at any computer or music store. Follow the instructions carefully for best results. Unfortunately, not all scratches can be repaired. Sometimes, you just have to replace the disc. Water spots can also be a problem, and they don't usually respond to a scratch-repair kit. Beware of spilling sugary liquids like soda on your discs. Even if you wipe up the spill immediately, it leaves behind a sticky residue that will ruin a perfectly good disc by causing dirt, hair, and sweat to stick to the surface. Also, try not to touch the playable surface of the disc with your hands. Sweat contains salt, which will eventually cause tiny pits to form in the disc surface.

Copy and paste a new onplay.exe how do I do this When trying to use HP Games I get onplay.exe has stopped working


I fixed that retarded license agreement issue by first uninstalling the HP Games Console and putting checks in all those check boxes next to the individual games titles so they as well get uninstalled.

I then loaded the HP recovery manager and clicked on the "advanced settings". I told it i would like to re-install software. from the list they provided I found the HP Games. I selected that and told it to re-install. It warned me I must have the game uninstalled first, i knew it was gone because i had just done it so I continued with the re-install....that re-install part took like 5mins to complete. I thought it was frozen at one point it took so long but I decided to leave it alone and have a beer then re-check it....A few tasty beers later I checked on the re-install and it told me it had completed and asked me to restart. Once it was rebooted the HP Games icon was back on my desktop and I could continue beyond that silly license agreement.

TA DA! damn i'm smooth with computers.

Clueless to the meaning,NO COMPATIBLE DISPLAY DEVICES FOUND


The game you are trying to play does not support your graphics card or ther is a problem
with your graphics driver. To be sure, try uninstalling the graphics driver and then
reinstall it again. Then try to run your game again.
Also make sure that your antivirus is not blocking the games

Hi my pc isnt playing any sound, iv gone into the control panel and its showing me there isnt a sound driver applied to my computer when iv tried to apply one it wont let me, does this mean my sound card...


-Maybe one of the cause that you can't install the sound driver is because there is a sound driver currently installed on the system that is corrupted .
-Try to uninstall first under device manager and reboot system then reinstall the sound driver.
-After this steps you still can't install the driver, check if the current sound driver that you are trying to install is compatible driver for your system.
-Check manufacturer website for system specification.

Having problems with drivers after iv downgraded to xp pro from vista on my laptop, iv got the network controller iv downloaded like 3 nvidia geforce 6100 go drivers but they never let me install them it...


Using one of the drivers you have already downloaded for the geForce. (Remember where you extracted them to)

Right click on "My Computer", "Properties","Hardware", "Device Manager"

Click on the VGA adapter that is not installed. Click the update driver button and tell the wizard you will specify the location of the driver. Then next click "don't search. I will choose the driver to install". Click the "Display adapter" and "next". On the next screen click "have disk". Go to the folder where you extracted the drivers to and then you will see that you can click "Geforce 6100/6150 (whichever one you have)

Graphic card


the pc you are using probably has onboard video and not a seperate dedicated AGP graphics card, which needs atleast 64MB of memory and T & L support, so check the card before you buy, if you already have an AGP card fitted it may not support T & L
