Can i run windows 8.1 64mb if i have 32bit operating system installed ram 8gb with 2.97 usage x64-based prossesr


You would have to install Win 8.1 64 bit from scratch; new copy with new license. Then you'll have to reinstall all of your old 32 bit programs, some may not work on 64 bits.

Is there a driver/file available that makes cyberia2 of microsoft work on windows 7? When trying to start the game it says no support f full screen mode and if run under dos it wont run eighter. Pls...


If it's a DOS based game (which I believe it is based on what I'm reading), you'll need to install a DOS emulator. I believe DosBox http://www.dosbox.com/ is popular, but there are a few others if you search around.

How do you turn dos off


You can't. Even if your using a Linux based operating system it has a form of Dos installed. Without does you don't have anything to tell the computer what to do.

I have it almost installed but before i can play the game my screen changes resloution and magnifies my windows then i get an alert box telling me that the organ trail game cant be installed then it closes...


Ahh i see.... Starting with windows 2000/XP. Windows no longer supports DOS... Im kinda sad about that myself D= but it doesnt end there for you my friend. Organ trail is a great game.

My tip is for you to get a program called DOS box from source forge. Simple google DOS BOX. Install the program and run the program from within dosbox. If you dont know how to run dos box simply drag the EXE you are trying to run into the window. Give it a try and it will work trust me. GL in the game....

Dropped netbook


hmm..

What is the Operating system windows XP or previous?
i think you need to boot from Operating system CD, go through the installation process and when it asks choose the repair option.

when you get a Black MS dos based screen you need to type "chkdsk -r"

this may take a while, reboot and should be fine.

16 Bit Vs 32 Bit Systems


You can't convert the program on the disk from 16 bit to 32 bit. However the 32 bit versions of Windows are supposed to include legacy support for 16 bit applications. What version of WIndows are you running? What's the exact errormessage you're getting?

However, I would recommend that you use a virtualization product called DOSBox. DOSBox is free software that runs older 16 bit applications on Windows (And other operating systems such as Linux) very well:
