Question about PC Desktops

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?

Need recovery disc for compaq presario SR1920NX


go to http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3184154

If you don't want to purchase the recovery disks you may want to just install a 'generic' windows xp, Vista, or Windows 7 and download the drivers you need (if not included in the generic installation) and install the computer's unique drivers.

Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

DVD Drive will play DVD,but will not recognize a CD


This usually means that auto-play is not enabled and your computer is reading the disc fine.

Once the disc is in your computer go to the MY COMPUTER icon on the start menu.

Next find the CD/DVD icon and double click on that. This should open your cd for you!

My Compaq Presario 5000 series (year 2001) is running extremely slow. I was told to use the original disc and start it over again. I do not have one. Where can I get one?


what operating system have you got? You can load Windows XP clean on it and download drivers from hp.com . How much Ram have you got in the PC , maybe upgrade RAM?

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.
