Question about HP Pavilion 8860 (P2941A) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Game Error I have a game I used to play (here it is): I want to play again but every time I try to install it on my or someone else's computer, I always get this window: What's wrong? Is the disc damaged, could it be the computers I tried it on, should I try it on Vista, or what else could it be?

I had that game - it was a really great one! I have seen that error before, and I have some suggestions to help you out.

1.) Check the disc surface for deep scratches - The error code you are getting is the result of the program (setup) trying to copy data and not being able to complete a file transfer. Rather than giving you options to omit the file or skip it, the setup errors out and your stuck with nothing.

2.) If the Disc Is Not Damaged - Check what operating system you are running. Vista Home has issues with how it handles data moving from the CD drive to the Hard Drive. Sometimes it will interpret this data incorrectly - leading to games and such being incompatable with Vista. This software should run smoothly on: (Windows XP Home/Pro and Ubuntu Hardy with Wine Installed)

3.) If All Else Fails - Check out Amazon.com or another retailer for a cheap price on that title. Its an older title and I am sure if anyone has it they won't want much for it.

Program shuts down when starting if for the 2nd time.


The game must have been corrupted.
The only way is to uninstall it then reinstall it again.
Also make sure that your pc meets the system requirements to run the game. Free up your disk space too, before you reinstall the game.

Acer X193w-- input not supported..


Hello,

This is likely a screen resolution issue.

That monitor has a native resolution of 1440x900 (I used to have one). If the game is feeding the monitor too high a resolution, the monitor can't display it and.....input not supported. So, if the game has a configuration option (without going into the game itself) set the resolution to 800x600 and try to play. If it works, bump up the resolution until it looks acceptable.

Hope this helps!
