As previously mentioned, if you upgraded your system to Windows Vista, you will need new drivers for all of your devices.

After you've done that, you will have to verify whether your version of the game will run on Vista - usually indicated on the box that the game came in. If it is not Vista-compatible, then you can buy a new version of it for $5.75 including shipping:

Vista will usually run programs for XP, but many games utilize video and audio devices that may no longer function in Vista as they did in XP.


Solution: go to the websites of the manufacturers of your sound card and video card, and download updated drivers for Vista. This is still not a guarantee that it will work, as the game may be specifically designed to work with XP only.

Win 98 in dos mode i get this message " no cd rom or msdex.exe is not loaded " when trying to acces game disk in cd rom


1) Does it say MSDEX.EXE or MSCDEX.EXE?

2) Have you ever used that CD successfully on that computer before? (DVD's don't work well in MS-DOS).

3) Verify its trying to run from the correct drive. D:, E:, etc...

That aside, I'd recommend a glance at the following support page. It sounds like your driver isn't supported or your game is referring to a specific drive that doesn't exist.

MSCDEX Help

(make a back-up copy your autoexec.bat, and rename it autoexec.bat.orig just in case)
Get an older compatible driver for your CD-Rom that is windows 98 compatible, so something around the year 2000 is probably ideal.
Uninstall your current driver and reboot. Scan for Hardware changes and install the new drivers for your CD-ROM. Then check your config.sys and verify the driver. If its not correct, open the autoexec.bat in an editor. in the portion of the autoexec.bat that has MSCDEX..exe program you'll put in the following. (replace DRIVERNAME with the driver name, typically MSCD001)

LH C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\MSCDEX.EXE /D:DRIVERNAME

Save, reboot. Let me know how it goes!

  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available orfails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. Ifyou do not have a set of Recovery Media, you may purchase the set onlinefrom the manufacturer.

I was just given a Dell Dimension 3000 by my daughter, who said there was no problems with it. It has a CD-Rom drive and a DVD-RW drive. When I power it up and click on MyComputer, neither of these drives...


They probably can't load because they are loading at the same time and XP can't sort it out.
Remove the cable from the CD ROM and re boot but enter the BIOS and make sure it is no loonger there.
The nachine should load the DVD rom.
You can try adding the CD rom now, it may work but being XP it may grab the wrong driver again and hang up.
Download new drivers from Dell.com
Hope this helps.

Installing Vista on new hard drive- CD/DVD Driver not found


Are you installing from the SONY-supplied "System Restore" CD/DVD disks, or from a "generic" Vista DVD-ROM?

The SONY disks _should_ have the correct drivers for your notebook computer.

You might have to go to the BIOS of your computer to ensure your drive is recognised. Once it shows there, make sure you change the Drive as your first boot device.

About vindows vista


You buy a windows Vista installer disc from a website such as this one (Once the page loads navigate to Software>Operating Systems). After you buy the disc insert the CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive. Now start your computer. During startup tell your motherboard to boot from the CD-ROM drive. This is done before the Windows (or whichever operating system you use) loading screen. It will give you a message such as, "Boot From - F2." Press the button associated with the message for the boot sequence (In the above example it would be F2). This is where you select your CD-ROM drive as the primary boot device, then press ENTER to confirm the decision. The motherboard might ask you to press a key on your keyboard to boot from the CD-ROM drive. In this instance press any key on the keyboard and the Windows Operating System Installer will launch.
