Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

    My computer is not a laptop. It has been suggested that perhaps my computer is out of sync with the monitor since the monitor had been disconnected. I do get a screen stating that windows recognizes my monitor and that I should go to control panel to confirm - however since I do not have any screen to access that from this is currently not possible. Possible solution may be to drain capacitors and restart computer with monitor off for 30 seconds or so. I will try that first before taking ram or other system pieces for testing.

Download the sata drivers for the laptop and slipstream the sata drivers with the xp installation disc ( making it bootable ) using nlite ( http://www.nliteos.com ) and then try and install - the other option is to disable AHCI in the bios or to make sure that it treats the hard drive in IDE mode and try and install xp.

If that does not help then post back and let me know.

The other option before you install xp is to go into recovery console and see if you can run chkdsk /r and see if that has any issues with the hard drive if it detects the hard drive.

If it does and you see any issues then if it cant fix them then there is something wrong with the hard drive possibly in which case download and burn the iso disc image from the hard drive manufacturers website ( diagnostic utility for the hard drive ) and run that and see if it reports any issues with the the hard drive. If that does not then it is obviously either a setting in the bios or because you have not got the SATA drivers intergrated with the xp disc.

Also if you can post back with a link to a photo of the Blue Screen of Death or post back exactly what it says.

I can't run "Curse: The Eye Of Isis" in Windows Vista - any hope ???


I have a "virtual" copy of Windows running on my computer at home that use for running older games and applications. There are several free programs out there... Microsoft has one: Virtual PC and there is a Open Source version hosted by Oracle: www.virtualbox.org With a dual-core or higher, 2GB or greater RAM, you can run a virtual desktop with ease... All you'll need is a old copy of Windows to install (e.g. Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 98)

How do i reset my password on my hp elitebook 8730w


Here is a simple way to access Windows XP with Administrator rights and privileges if you have password protected your User account on your Windows XP system and can't remember the password(s) to login. Whenever Windows XP is installed on a system, it creates a default account called "Administrator" and by default this account is not password protected. Therefore, if you bought a brand name computer (such as Dell, HP, Compaq or Sony)or you have installed Windows XP yourself. You should be able to login to the computer through the unprotected.

You can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account. To do this, try Method 1.

Method 1: Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch on until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Click through several self-explanatory screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.

Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You will not be able to change this mode even in Display options, while Windows is running in Safe Mode.

Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.
Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.
Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (e.g. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.


If Method 1 is unsuccessful try Method 2.

Method 2: Reset Windows Password with SmartKey Windows Password Recovery.

Download SmartKey Windows Password Recovery from SmartKey Password Recovery Official site

Decompress the SmartKey Windows Password Recovery and note that there is an.ISO image file. Burn the image file onto a blank CD with the burner.

Insert the newly created CD into the locked computer and re-boot it from the CD drive.

Boot the PC with the CD Rom and Run the SmartKey, a window pop up with all your account names(if you have several accounts) select one of the accounts that you have forgotten its password to reset it. Just one press, you have removed the password.

CANNOT PLAY BICYCLE PINOCHLE SINCE UPDATING COMPUTER PLAYED BICYCLE PINOCHLE ON WINDOWS 98, CANNOT PLAY ON WINDOWS 7


Unfortunately, due to changes in the OS and how programs run, a program written for Windows 98 will not run under Windows 7 directly.

Even the compatibility mode will probably not work unless your version of Bicycle Pinochle for Windows was written for XP as well as Windows 98. (The WinXP version would possibly run under the Windows 7 32-bit version; it won't work under the 64-bit OS. To find your version of Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the version title ends with x64, you have the 64-bit OS. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.)

You need to either upgrade your game software or get an older version of Windows running somehow. This could be a virtual computer (runs inside your Windows 7 computer if your hardware permits it), a second machine or a dual boot computer. For Windows 98, you will need a licensed version of the OS for any method. Check a nearby Windows User's Group to see if anyone there has the OS.

If your version of Pinochle could run under Windows XP and you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate (or upgrade to them), you can run a virtual version of XP for free. In this case, download and install (in order) Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Then install the software in the XP computer as if it were the only computer running. (The compatibility mode didn't work inside XP mode for software written for Windows 2K so I doubt a Win98 program will work.)

An XP version of Bicycle Pinochle was offered by Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/games/bicycle/card/ . A Windows 7 version of Single Deck Pinochle is here: http://www.sac-irca.com/pino.html .

I wish that I had better news for you.

Trying to run my old HPP game in windows 7 but can't get compatability


There is a good chance that you won't be able to run that game on windows 7 with any sort of compatability mode. There is however another more advanced method that can be used to run very old games. You can set up a virtual machine on your windows 7 operating computer, and on this virtual machine install an earlier copy of windows, windows 98 for instance, which will run the game just fine.

To do this you need a copy of windows 98, thats the easy bit.

Then you need to download and install Windows Virtual PC and check your software compatibility. The download link can be found here.

Once you have Windows Virtual PC installed then you will need to set up your first virtual machine.
  • Start up the program
  • A wizard will pop up and help you through the creation of your first VM
  • Select "Create Virtual Machine" and then click Next
  • Select the Name For Your VM then click Next
  • Then from the drop down menu to the left select Windows 98 and click Next
  • Select "Using The Recommended Ram" then click Next
  • Select "A New Virtual Hard Disc" then click Next
  • My Suggestion is to leave these at Default, then click Next
  • Check over the details and click Finish.
That should see your first VM Setup. Now go to the Virtual PC Console, select the VM you just created and click start. You should see a window that pops up showing what appears to be a PC starting up. That is the virtual PC starting up just like your pc would. Starting up for the first time can take quite a while so be patient.

The VM should then display the message "Reboot and Select proper Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device".

It's at this point you need your copy of Windows 98, on you VM window you will see on the menu bar at the top of the window the drop down "CD" click on this and select your disc method, which CD drive the disc is in or if it's an ISO file select that option.

Once you have that selected then:
  • Press the space bar and the screen should change
  • Select boot from CD-ROM, press enter
  • Select Start Windows 98 Seyup from CD-Rom, press enter
  • Press Enter when promted to
  • Select Configure unallocated disc space, press enter
  • Select, "Yes, Enable large Hard Disc Support". press enter
  • Press Enter when promted, the VM will now restart
  • Repeat the first 3 steps
  • Setup should now be formatting your virtual hard drive
  • Press Enter when prompted
  • The Windows setup Wizard should now be running
  • Follow the wizard through and Windows will start installing
  • During this process the VM wil restart several times
  • Once the VM restarts and again promts to start from CD-Rom or Hard Drive, select Hard Drive, then press enter.
  • Once your VM starts up in Windows 98, proceed with the installation of the game and any other software it needs.
Once you've done all this you will have the perfect compatibilty platform set up for any old games you own, as it is Windows 98 not some mode stuck on the side of you version of windows.

This is quite a long and complicated method, but it will work and it will allow you to play just about any pre 2000 game going.
