Is the disk a dvd disk or and actual CD.
DVD's will not play on a CD drive and visa versa.
more so, problem might be your video settings are set wrong, or your video card and or PC processor does not support this game.
As always read the instructions on the game and it's support properties BEFORE you buy it.
Most software is not returnable once the shrinkwrap is broken.
good luck.

Solve black screen after windows bootup


After logging on there is no desktop, task bar, system tray or side bar. Instead you are left with a totally black screen and a single My Computer Explorer window. Even this window might be minimized making it hard to see.
1. Restart the Computer and login with the login and password that you use.

2. If the black screen appears and there is no icon visible on screen, Press the “ALT + CTRL + DEL” keys on the keyboard together.

3. A windows will appear with option to launch Task Manager, Simply Launch Task Manager.

4. On Task Manager, go to Application Tab and Click on New Task

5. Now type "explorer.exe" in the task window and click run.

Test drive unlimited is not for pc


The minimum hardware requirement for Test Drive Unlimited are: > Pentium 4 2.4Ghz or higher processor
> 1 GB of RAM
> a 256MB Graphics card (GeForce 6600GT or better)
> 8 GB of hard disk space
and it runs only on the windows platform. Does your PC meet these requirements? If it does, then, I suggest that you re-install your graphics card's drivers.

Trouble with my new acer aspire desktop computer


Slow boot problems on any computers are due to 2 reasons :
(1) Hardware reasons and
(2)Software reasons

(TRY THE SOLUTION MENTIONED FOR SOFTWARE FIRST, IF THAT DOES NOT HELP, ONLY THEN TRY THE HARDWARE SOLUTION)

HARDWARE REASONS> if your system has less RAM (memory) then it can cause slow boot up issues,
SOLUTION FOR HARDWARE > I recommend you to check the amount of memory on your system., to check the memory on your system , click on start , then "right click" on "my computer " icon and select properties.. on the screen you will the the amount of RAM installed. I recommend 1 GB of RAM on a computer.
