Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Installing Problems HI I just bought a Dell computer Inspiron 530S. My son bought 2 Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic I and II. Now I have the windows vista either game will not work. The first one will start but won't load the saved game. The II while installing, it gets to the last cd it stops and won't finish installing. I sent a email to Lucasarts and explained everything, but no help, they just say it has not been tested on windows vista. NOW the first Star Wars game I installed it on my daughters NEW Dell laptop and it works perfect and its windows vista!!! So I have tried and tried with the second one and it just won't finish installing. CAN anyone help???

    Hi Thanks for your response. Its the same card in both computers. I ordered them myself. I custom ordered both computers through dell. Everything is exactly the same in both  computers.On the web site it shows option 1 or 2 which one do I install. I have never done this before so I am clueless on drivers!



    Thanks Kim

It's a hardware incompatibility with windows vista. for example your graphics card on your Inspiron might not be fully supported in windows vista and your Laptop's graphics card is supported by Vista. Most of the times we can find this incompatibility is with graphics cards. Download and install the newest drivers for your inspiron's graphics card. I have seen your inspiron has an ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card. The windows Vista drivers can be downloaded here http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=vista32/common-vista32

The old can't be played on the new 360?


The Xbox 360 is backwards compatible with certain games that were released for the original Xbox. Currently there are more than 200 BC titles with more being added all the time. Big name titles such as Halo, Halo 2, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Ninja Gaiden Black are just some of the Xbox games you can play on Xbox 360

There is a requirement for backwards compatibility and that is you have to have a hard drive for your Xbox 360. If you bought a Core system you can't play original Xbox games on your system until you buy a hard drive
