Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I originally purchased a Compaq Presario Pc and received a Disc for the game Recoil which I was able to play successfully, my computer came with Windows 98 installed on it. I then purchased Windows XL update for my computer which installed successfully but I now find I can not play Recoil anymore on my computer. I uninstalle d the complete recoil disc and tried loading it again but it seems to install the disc and when you try to start a game it goesd through the preamble up to the start of the first section and then shuts down my computer completely which was the original problem after installin Windows XL. Can you please help me.

You game's software is not compatible with XP, it was designed for 98. That is what your saying correct, you installed Windows XP not XL?

How do i remove my compaq presario 2200's hard drive?


The Compaq Presario line is one of the longest-running series of computers, originating in 1993 and remaining in production even after the purchase of Compaq by HP. Because of this, many Compaq Presario desktops have required that some of their parts be upgraded or replaced because of the wear that they have received over years of standard use. One of the more commonly replaced Presario desktop components is the hard drives, especially given how much hard drivemag-glass_10x10.gif storage capacity has increased since the Compaq Presario line was introduced. Replacing a hard drive in a Compaq Presario desktop isn't difficult, and can usually be done in a matter of minutes even for users who aren't familiar with computer upgrades.
structions
  1. Step 1Remove the screws holding the left side panel of the computer on, then slide the panel back to remove it. Set both the panel and the screws aside so that you can put the panel back in place once the hard drive has been replaced.
  2. Step 2Unplug the ATA (wide, flat and usually gray) or SATA (thicker, thin and red) data cable and the power cable from the back of the hard drive that is currently in the Compaq Presario. Move the cables so that they will be out of the way, but make sure that they will still be easily accessible to you so that you can plug them into the new hard drive.

Upgrade Compaq Presario(model sr5433wm) to play games on PC.


Your computer will support up to 4GB of memory - using two 3GB modules. Memory type is 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM which you can purchase on line or at a ocal computer outlet. Likewise for the purchase of your video card. For step-by-step instructions on installing the card, check out this link:

I just upgraded the memory and video on my HP Pavilion (first cousin of your COMPAQ), and it's a simple operation.

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.

Compaq presario start up


If the computer has or had a "Certificate of Authenticity" on the bottom, something that has the Windows XP key on it, then you have a license to run a copy of Windows on that machine. One way would be to go to eBay and buy a Compaq restore CD. You might have a hard time finding one that's made specifically for your computer.

There may be an easier method though. Many laptops have a complete recovery disc stored on the hard drive, which you can use to burn your own copies. If you follow this and find the Recovery Creator program, your laptop is one of these:

Click Start--> All Programs --> System Recovery --> PC Recovery Disc Creator .

If you don't find that, then another tactic would be to contact Compaq. Most companies will have copies that you can purchase for a fee. CLICK HERE TO GO TO COMPAQ'S SITE TO BUY ONE.

good luck.

Laptops are usless for playing games. They may play some low quality games but there is really nothing you can do to upgrade a laptop to make it suitable for playing games. If you are planning on playing PC Games, buy a good Desktop Computer.

Yes, these are the times when an XP backup disk comes in handy. If you still have the key#, you could borrow someone els's disk to repair the corrupted Window files. This is a must do in order to use Windows again. Once you get the disk, restart the computer with it in and choose Recovery Counsel. This is essential as there is no other way to fix it.
