This could be a few different things you may not have enough memory(ram) in the computer, the video card can't handle the games because there isn't enough memory on the card. it never hurts to add another fan to cool it off better. most higher end video cards have cooling fans on them too.

Iam using HP Desktop D530 when i open some programmes but processor fan runs so fast and loud 2 gb ram in my pc and hard disk is 20 gb how can i reduce noice of fan ?


To reduce the fan noise, open the PC Case and clean the fan. Also, proper ventilation keeps the system cool and the fan runs at lower speed.

Hope this helps!

Gets hot and turns off


you are frying the computer. get a cooling pad they are a cheap way to keep the computer cool. games require more juice to run, so when you play them your computer is in overdrive trying to keep up and to cool down. if you keep it cool then it won't have to work as hard. the computer has a partition on the hard drive you have to press F10 or F11 key and it will boot off that. that is a restore partition, so you can take it back to the state in which you bought it.

Complete PC shut down whilst playing CD-ROM games


For sure this is an overheating problem.

It's possible it's a fan. First check and see if the fan is in fact running. To do this just put your hand in front of the fan and see if you feel any air. Also there is a fan on the power supply. This fan is usually at the top left of the case when looking at the back of the case. You should also feel air coming out of this fan.

Another possibility is that a filter is clogged or the computer has dust inside of it. To fix this unplug the computer from power and remove all connections on the back panel. Then open the case and clean out any dust. This can be best done by using some portable air. You can find this at Radio Shack, Office Depot, Office Max or almost any computer store. Just ask for a can of air to remove dust from a computer. When the computer looks dust free reassemble everything and try again.

A third possibility is that the power supply is going bad. This would require a replacement power supply. This would need to be done by a computer repair facility. Often compaq uses custom parts so you probably have to buy a power supply from compaq. Power supplies get very hot and can fail.

Hope this helps.

My computer fan is running continuously, from the time it turns on. (even before booting in to windows xp) why does my hard drive fan kicks in all the time - its loud and annoying


The fans in most desktops do run whenever the unit is on. Only high end/ performance/ or self built systems usually have self adjustable fan speeds.

Scattagories Exits Suddenly


You're able to get it to run on XP all the way through? I commend you! It's designed to run on a Fat32 OS (98/ME) instead of NTFS (Xp and newer) .. I personally own the game and I've made images, and all sorts of work arounds, never been able to get it to work all the way. On XP it'd start up and play, but exit to desktop with no warning. On windows 7 (aka newer vista) it plays, but no video, just sound.

Crashed computer. \WINDOWS\system32\config\SYSTEM is corrupt or missing. We dont have the original setup cd-rom. All we have is a windows xp disk for a different computer. Is there anyway this can work? I...


you have a registry problem! that could be result of a hardware problem.. there is a good article of things you can try, it's usually suggested for you use the same xp cd that you use to install the os, otherwise is risky business using a different cd... you may want to find a cd that has the same service pack you have before starting... if you can't get that cd, read my suggestiong below

http://www.help2go.com/Tutorials/Windows/C:%5Cwindows%5Csystem32%5Cconfig%5Csystem_missing_or_corrupt.html

I strongly suggest the following:
first of all if possible, take your hard drive out, using and enclosure or another machine try to back up your data so it things go wrong or it's just taking too much time, you can just wipe out the hard drive and start fresh with a clean install, you may find it this to be the easiest and fastest way... back up your data regardless then start troubleshooting.

Vista problem


Any XP installation disk will format your hard drive. All you have to do is boot the XP installation disk and follow the prompts. IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE YOU CAN'T GO BACK! unfortunately you can't recover on OS that you've overwritten... And if you could you wouldn't want to. You need an install disk, which Compaq should provide for you.
