If you have the system recovery disk that came with that pc, you should be able to completely reformat the entire drive, which would wipe all of the data and start fresh. Also, you can try following these instruction for lost Windows password:

How do i update my pixel shader for my computer to play games ?


Hi Gerry, if your HP's video card is capable of running the game, you can update the video driver. I would suggest trying the HP Driver Download Support website first. Here's the link: Drivers Downloads.

If your video card is not capable of running the game, you will want to look into a different video card.

Hope that helps you out! :)

Follow the directions to enable Compatibility Mode in Windows 2000 and try running your application in compatibility mode for windows 95.
  1. Log on as Administrator.
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK, where %SystemRoot% is the drive and folder in which Windows is installed (eg C:Windows): regsvr32 %systemroot%apppatchslayerui.dll
  1. Log on as Administrator.
  2. Right-click the shortcut (for scrabble), and then click Properties.
  3. Click Compatibility.
  4. Click to select the Run in Compatibility Mode check box to enable Compatibility-mode support for the program.
  5. Click Windows 95 compatibility mode in the drop-down box.
  6. Click OK to save the changes.
  7. Double-click the shortcut to run the program.
Good Luck!

is it not installing,try to browse setup.exe or install file for the game,right click and choose run as administrator..it should be installed w/o any problems,or if you were able to install this and the game just crashes upon playing it,you need to put it to compatibility mode,To do this search for freespace.exe (Probably in C:\Program Files\Volition\", right click and select the "compatibility" tab. Check the box that says "run this program in compatibility mode for" and select "Windows 98"
