Hi okaokman94,
possible reasons would be:

1. bad cd - return it to where you purchase it but before that, see if you can try it on another pc.
2. faulty cd rom - try another cd and see if it works,( audio cd,video cd)

I have a question about my laptop, I put a computer game into the cd/dvd thing and when i click on the game icon its saying disc not inserted retry, but when i retry or wipe the disc off it says the...


1. Make sure the disk is upright and not scratched. Seperation of the layers inside the disk can cause it to be damaged (freezing). Try another disk to see if it is a problem with your drive.

2. If your drive is fine and the disk does not have a printable surface (dull white) you can clean the disk with lukewarm water and a drop of Dawn (non-greasy dish liquid). Dry with lint free cloth (not paper towel=wood chips). Do not rub in circular motions, only side to side across the disk.

3. Check Device Manager to see if the CD is complaining. If so, document, delete and allow Windows to try reinstalling (restart computer). If not download driver for CD drive (you documented it right?)

4. If all else fails, and you can't read any cd replace the drive.

Please rank this response.

Thanks,

Our hp pavilion 4535 will not read discs


I'm thinking of a couple of solutions:
  1. Auto run as turned off, navigate to your drives (usually in the My Computer icon) and check for your disc drive (usually Drive D:). If it is showing a disc then you can right-click and open to see the contents or double click for an auto-play.
  2. If you open up the drives and don't see a CD ROM drive then it might have gotten dropped some how. In this case you will want to go to the device manager and check to see if the CD ROM drive is listed and if it needs some fixing.

Game problem


Try it in a friends computer to see if it works there. If not, then there is a problem with the disc. I'd take the game back to where you bought it.

I bought 5200 great games and it will not down load it


In order for your computer to download the games first make sure there is enough memory on your computer. Then when you put in the disc for the game go up to "my computer" this will allow you to access the cd drive which should allow you to download the games. If this doesn't work you can contact me at - Ninjam0nkey18@aim.com -

When i put in a computer game disc it says no disc found put in correct disc and i put in the right disc and my computer is a compaq presario 5000 i think


This is a big problem with a lot of games and their copyguard schemes. The game doesn't like the CD drive that you are using, usually. Their is also a host of other factors that can cause this. You can contact the game manufacture but they usually don't succeed in a fix. I have had a game do this on almost identical systems. Works on one but not the other.

I hate my computer!


No, this doesn't cost unless you sign up for Premium Assistance.
  1. Remove the disc from the drive.
  2. Look at the top of the disc (or game box). Verify whether it is a CDROM or DVD-ROM.
  3. If it is a DVD-ROM, verify the drive on your computer that you are inserting the disc into is capable of reading DVD-ROMs.
  4. Go to My Computer and verify which drive letter is the drive you'll be inserting the disc into.
  5. Insert the disc.
  6. Wait 20 seconds. If the disc doesn't automatically start up, go to step 7.
  7. Open My Computer and double click the drive containing the disc.
  8. If My Computer now shows the disc contents, find the most likely ".exe" file and run it.

Crappy computer


the solution on the cd disc is to remove the cd out then uninstall the all games installed in this cd drive replace cd drive when it comes to uninstalling sim delux is goto where saved games in sim deluxe and save folder to a different location then uninstall then re-install with new cd drive and hunt net for nc patches for games that work if this still doesn't work time for re-install windows from scratch if you have a spare hard drive use it to copy all game saves to it then redo windows and all drivers then all games then place saves back into place where they came from. good luck.
