Question about Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer

1 Answer

I have Windows 7 on a new computer. The view is sideways now.

I have Windows 7 on a new computer. My 3 year old was playing a game on there and clicked several keys on the keyboard and moved the mouse. Now everything on the screen is showing sideways - like portrait rather than landscape - on the monitor. How do I change it back to landscape view?

Space empires II wont run on windows 7


If compatibility mode doesn't work, the game is probably too old to be played on windows 7. You could use an emulation software to run an older windows version and play the game. Otherwise, Space Empires 2 being such an old game won't run on Windows 7. Sorry!

Hi, phoogland!

Older products aren't compatible with newer OS. The best way you can play these games is probably by emulating a virtual PC. Try installing Windows 98 on a Windows Virtual PC.

Here's a link to a detailed manual: http://www.essjae.com/virtualization/WinVPC-InstallingWin98.pdf

If this didn't fix your issue please let me know. Hope this helped you!

See, all programs and games grow old, and computer operating systems change as well.


What i would advice you to do, is to ask the repair man to install Windows XP on a Virtual Computer inside your computer. And install the game there.

I have a game called "the Simpsons Hit & Run"


What about Windows 8? Windows 98/ME is not an option. I tried the steps above with Windows XP (Service Pack 3) and Windows Vista (Service Pack 2) and Windows 7. It doesn't work in any of them?
