Akilesh yadav hp laptop not install windows xp

If it is an older computer, the motherboard may not accept an XP installation. I have older desktops that will not accept an XP install but work fine with Win 98 and ME.

If newer model the problem could be with the disk or the cd reader. A defect in either will prevent an install.

I brought my old big game hunter 4 out to play on my windows 7 but it will not allow me to shoot an animal please help

Try by right-clicking the executable for the game (should be in the install folder) and go to Properties. Then go tot he "Compatibility" tab, on the first area, click the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and then select either "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)" or "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)" and then, at the bottom of the window, check the option that reads "Run this program as an administrator" hit the "Apply" button and then the"Accept" button. This is made because old games don't always run the same in a newer computer than they used to in older ones. The run as an administrator option is because older games created folders or files in the install folder, since this is on the "C:" hard drive and Windows 7 has protection over it, the game might not work, hope this worked.

I have a windows 98 system bios and i wish to Put a differnt Hard drive in that has windows xp on it . Is there a way to do this

It probably won't work. Win 98 machines not only had older BIOS but also the processor was older and most importantly the video was older. XP may just not be able to recognize these parts. In my lab I use an old Dell laptop that was made specifically for Win 98. I was able to install XP but the graphics stay in four color mode as there were no drivers ever written for XP. Also the hard drive with XP was probably formated using NTFS while Windows 98 (unless modified) only recognizes FAT. Good luck and sorry

Please go through the below instructions, I have sent you the instructions for how to reformat a PC /laptop and I hope this will help you in understanding as well as learning.
If you have windows XP, 95, 98, or ME:-
How to Format a Computer with Windows XP:-
  1. The first step in learning how to format a computer with Windows XP or 2000 is to insert Windows CD and restart your computer.
  2. Your computer should automatically boot from the CD to the Windows Setup Main Menu.
  3. At the Welcome to Setup page, press ENTER.
  4. Press F8 to accept the Windows XP Licensing Agreement.
  5. If an existing Windows XP installation is detected, you are prompted to repair it. To bypass the repair, press ESC.
  6. Use the ARROW keys to select the partition or the unpartitioned space where you want to create a new partition. Press D to delete an existing partition, or press C to create a new partition.
  7. Type the size in megabytes (MB) that you want to use for the new partition, and then press ENTER, or just press ENTER to create the partition with the maximum size.

Get script error message whenever you move the mouse

Is it an older game? Just for fun you could try Windows 98 compatibility mode. Right click whatever icon you use to launch the game, click the Compatibility tab up top. Then click the checkbox "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" try Windows 98. Secondly, you should uninstall the game, reboot, reinstall the game.
