Question about Computers & Internet

I now believe that my problem could be that my 14 year old golf game requires a Vesa driver which is not on my HP pavilion zd8000 laptop with XP. Although vesa is supplied on the CD golf game I cannot get my laptop to respond. Any suggestions ! Alf.

You could try running the game trough DosBox, which is a good way to get older games to run, or VDMSound, which lets you run them in a windows dos shell.
Hope that helps.

My hp pavilion zd8000 laptop with XP installed will not allow me to load a golf game from a CD Rom I purchased some 14 years ago. I used to have this installed a nd played regularly on a previous computer.


The game may be not supported with the current Operating System Perhaps!!! What was your old computer's Operating system? And since the CD-ROM is 14 years old does it has too many scratch?? These days computer CD/DVD drives will never read the disc if they are scratched...

Finally, when you try installing the game, do you encounter any error message? if yes please post it....always remember if your posting your problem in forum, make sure that you provide all information about the issue.

Same problem with my zd8000 HP Pavilion laptop


what has happened with your notebook is a simple wear factor. on the LCD screen there are ribbon cables witch join the main PCB controller head to the LCD laminated portion (what you see) have begun to wear. i have just recently replaced a screen because of the same issue. try gently flexing the the screen and see if the lines dissappear. next open the screen up, and check the cable running to the back of the screen take care as to not damage anything.

HP Pavilion Laptop - vertical lines on screen from top to bottom


this will more than likely be a video card issue. The bad news, on laptops, everything is integrated into the motherboard and and you will have to replace. Getting to the motherboard can be a pain.

HP Pavilion zd8000 Upgrades


i have the same laptop. though your video card is independent, it is still integrated into the system and cannot be upgraded, your only be there is to go to the Radeon website and download the latest drivers for it.(it helps) As for your Ram, you can only upgrade to 2 mb of ddr2.(on mine it made a noticable difference) As far as the hd goes i believe sky is the limit, i went from 100 gb to 160 no problem

Hp pavilion zd8000 just over 2 years old


Sounds like you are getting a supply line issue which is well known on these models. Pull the battery, Boot into BIOS, (F10 at the splash screen) And see if it will run for an extended period of time. Next if it does Boot into Safe mode and do the same..(This is F8).. Post back..
