I recently bought an acer aspire one a110 netbook and installed windows xp on it using a flashdrive. Now I want to load a cd game (motogp 3) onto this netbook using a flashdrive, but after loading, I just get a quick flash of the dos-system. Windows is probably looking for the CD (which files is on the flashdrive) the game can't play without. Can you please help me with this?

It is not completely clear if you mean large PC games or if you mean small PC games.
By small PC games I mean games similar to the games that come with Windows and that appear in the 'All Programs -> Games' folder. Such as 'Free Cell', 'Hearts' or 'Solitaire'.
By large games I mean games like 'World of Warcraft' or 'Mortal Combat'.
Also, do you want to install the games on your Flashdrive or store them there?
If you want to store a large game on your flash drive. Place the CD/DVD with the game on it in your CD/DVD drive and insert your Flashdrive in a USB port.
Open 'WIndows Explorer' or 'My Computer'. Locate the CD/DVD drive that you inserted the game disk in (most likely your D: drive).
In the 'Edit' menu select 'Select All' and then in the 'Edit' menu select 'Copy'.
Then locate the Flashdrive in 'WIndows Explorer' or 'My Computer'. And in the 'Edit' menu select 'Paste'.
While this will copy the files from your game's CD/DVD disk to your Flashdrive you may or may not be able to install the game from your Flashdrive.
You can use this same procedure to copy small games to your Flashdrive from your Hard Drive. You will need to know where on your hard drive they are located. And they may or may not run from your Flashdrive.
Also you may be able to install and run games from your Flashdrive, When you run the Setup program from you game disk you will usually be given the option to select a alternative location to install the game. Select your Flashdrive at that point and it may install correctly to your Flashdrive. If it does you should be careful to always use the same USB port or the game won't run.
You'll need a Windows XP (or Vista/7) installation CD/DV. You can borrow it from someone. Insert the disk in to the CD/DVD drive. Restart your laptop.You will be offered to fix your windows installation.
Use a Windows installation CD and re-install Windows; the CD version must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop. You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the Acer WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the drivers which matches the Windows version you are installing.
