Does your disk drive work perfectly otherwise? Are you sure that your disk drive is capable of playing the disk involved? Older computers might have CD drives, incapable of reading DVD disks, which most of the games today use. Of course, besides, older computers might not be able to run it in the first place, so it might be a superfluous statement.   Look at the CD to see if there's any scratches or glitches. They might prevent the disk from reading properly. If so, return it to the shop for a new one.

My computer does not have a cd drive but i have a cd key code what can i do its for the game capture


If the game is already installed, then you can add the key when you start the game. A menu will usually show up to put it in when you begin. If you haven't already installed it, you can add an internal CD drive inside your computer. Or if you don't need one permanently, you can get an external CD/DVD drive that plugs into your USB port. You won't be able to use the game without the key.

Hi
Have you tried to go into your cmos settings and enable the settings to detect your cd rom
You should be able to use a external cd rom connected through your USB port to load and re-install windows and your drivers if you have the motherboard cd.
The problem is your limited in your options to work from the hard drive but a disk also gives you the option to repair the filing system and replace missing files.


The problem with installing windows on one pc and it not working on another pc is the motherboards are not compatible, and the configuration has to be similar or the same so the hard drive can boot up and communicate between the hardware and software.


Your options are use a CD rom, change your MB or google your problem and hope someone else was able to resolve this issue.

How to install nortons


If you are trying to install Norton from a CD/DVD, insert the CD/DVD into your CD/DVD drive.

If the autoplay option shows up automatically, click on "run ****.exe from the CD/DVD" and it will start installing Norton. Now, during the installation, you must follow the on-screen instructions.

If the autoplay doesn't show up, open your computer, right click over the CD/DVD drive and click on "Open Autoplay". Select "run ****.exe from the CD/DVD" and Installation will now start.

If you want to install Norton from a downloaded copy, double-click over the downloaded package (****.exe) and follow the on-screen instructions.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

How to install company of hero to my pc


To install this game follow these steps.
1. Put the CD/DVD in your computer (If you have a DVD version of the game and no DVD drive it won't work.) 2. The disk should be read and you can click on the autoplay/install option. If this doesn't happen go to my computer and double click the cd drive with the game icon on it. 3. Click install and follow the on screen instructions. You will need a CD key which is provided in the game case and it is usually located on the back of the instruction manual.
Hope this helps. Robert

My cd rom will not load 18 wheels of steel big city rigs how can i get it to load when I put it in the cd rom it dose nothin


The game may not be a cd that is setup to auto-load.

Put the cd in, give about a minute and then go into My computer and where your cd-rom is in there it should show the cd loaded as it will have a name there of the cd. If it doesn't show something then the cd might be bad.

If it does show something then right click on the drive and choose open and then it will show you all the files on the cd, then choose setup to install the game.

Now back to the cd, if it doesn't show anything in my computer then try other cd's to make sure your cd-rom is still working cause if its not reading anything then your drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

This sounds as if your Graphics card does not meet Minimum requirements. If it does indeed, try updating your graphics drivers at their manufacturers website.

I just bought MySims for the pc and when I put it in the computer, it doesn't show to be in my computer.


Sims can often be a problem!!, i have two daughters with sims on their pc's and both had problems of differnt sorts when first installed and with later sims add-ons .Problems were mainly to do with graphics cards not being compatible, i had to go the sims hardware support list to check the graphics cards supported, and ended up having to change both. I recommend a minimum card of 128mb on board memory, and either an Nvidia or Ati Radeon range.

The other problem that often happens with these games is that you have to install them whilst in safe mode, otherwise they will not recognise some of the installation files. To do this press F8 at boot up and select safe mode, then when booted install from the cd in the normal way.
