    Hi deangoo. you will have to be patient with me as I know very little about computers. I only know that the game ran fine on my old computer. my daughter says that the new computers do not recognize older games. she tried all kinds of stuff to no avail.

    I know very little about computers. I cannot get a complete download on the microsoft f 18 carrier strike force game. I get as far as choosing a mission then the screen goes black. my daughter says that newer computers do not recognize older games. It worked perfect on my older daughter tried all kinds of stuff but to no avail.

Do exactly as you did before. and make sure, you have the direct-x installed properly.

Vista sometimes can not play / run older games. on xp, it should work just fine.

If you have vista installed, try a xp installed pc first to make sure, the game cd is working perfect till.

Please let me it solver your problem or have any more asking.

    Making xp and vista dual boot is a bit difficult. You have to use either xp or vista an a system.




I have a feeling it might be the amount of RAM or maybe graphics memory try upgrading the two (If you want to it improves overall performance.Also the operating system might have compatibility issues(best OS to run on is XP for gaming)

Hope this is informative.

I was washing today and at the end of every wash tere was a code of f18 flashing on my screen .what should i do

F18 means pump is blocked or broken, clean filter first, no result change then you have to change the pump.

I also had this problem - the machine was full of water and it flashed up F18. I had to drain the water out of the machine using the small pipe located next to the drain filter. There was loads of water to drain out. I used my oven roasting tray which was perfect for the job. Then I undid the screwcap filter. There was a lot of really black water that came out, along with about two pounds worth of coins.

My moto q classic is stuck in a flash mode it says. its a black screen that pops up saying, motorola flash mode bootloader version BOOT_C_03.08.00R_MPAP charger connected please connect the...

Your system software / firmware has become corrupted. You need to download and install replacement firmware for your phone. You need to choose the correct firmware for your exact model and service provider / carrier for it to work.

I wrote fixya tip on how to do this a few months ago, the links are below. But don't use the verizon firmware unless verizon is your carrier - get your carriers firmware from Motorola's MotoQ website.

Or, just take it into your service providers store and get them to do it.

I hope that helps.

Delta force-black hawk down

Your graphic card may not support the graphics that game requires or your card must be out dated.
Either upgrade your card or buy a new graphic card for your PC.

Camera will not operate

Use the audio-visual cable that came with your camera and connect your camera to your TV.  Now turn-on your camera and switch to "view mode", e.g., to see a already taken picture on your LCD.  You will not see anything on your LCD but may see an image on your TV, even if the image is "F18". 

I used the above trick to clear an F18 error on an A75.  Right now I am trying to get the camera to focus properly, but somehow the above cleared the F18 error.

If the above does not work, try connecting your camera to your computer's USB port using the other cable that came with the camera.  Your camera will want to be on, and in the "view mode".  I have read that this trick can reset an F18 error.

Good luck.  At least it costs zero to try these two tips.
