Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

The Sims 2 Deluxe

The disc seems to run as I hear it; but, it doesn't actually download. I bought this Compaq from Best Buy last year and had to wait until games were Vista compatible. I'm completely disgusted with this machine. What is wrong?

Ok i just installed a game on my laptop. Since i had my laptop, last year, i have had no sound, not sure if i dont have a sound card or that it just doesn't work. I installed the game fine, untill i was...


Simple answer, no. If the problem is as it seems, that you do not have DirectX installed, you should just need to install it! If the game came on a disc, DirectX should be on the disc. Otherwise, you can download DirectX 9 from:http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=35

Hope that helps, get back to me if it doesn't.

I have a modded XBOX and recently bought Halo Reach (Back Up).When I insert the disc to play it say "Play DVD". i've last updated about a year ago. Could this be a problem?


Unfortunatly, Its a bug of the new update as I have also had the same problem only with Call Of Duty 4.
We will just have to wait until Microsoft fixes it.

PS3 - Game crash followed by disc read error


The update corrupted your hard drive that's why it's not loading any disc.Yes,Restoring the system will work but it will destroy all your saved game data.Updating the system will not remove the hard disk defect.There is only one solution,Reset it.

DVD recorder not recording any more


I have found that you get what you pay for in electronics. I bouoght a Cyber Home recorder, it lasted about 15 months before it went out.
I had another off brand ( don't remember name) that also didn't last. I have an older, I think it's a Panasonic, at least 5-6 years old. It won't reord on DVD+R, only on DVD/RW discs.
So, first I say you bought ****.
Buy name brand only it lasts longer.
Second, these things don't last to long.
I have a player only that is 5 + years old that still plays movies.
I haven't used the Panasonic for about a year. I do use it to PLAY movies still.

Disc Reader not reading disc


You can try to Clean with dvd cleaning kits...if doesn´t work..the only way fix is to disassemble the 360 and force the dvd laser adjusting the micro pot...located under the laser unit..But you will loose warranty and I think that the best way is to send your game console to microsoft...what hurts is that $140,00 you can buy 02 or even 03 xbox drives on ebay. Choose the best way! Good Luck!
