How to make it run on windows vista

I have never played this game but I think I know what the solution is.
So this game is designed to run on Windows 95, 98 and ME so this means that the graphics are 16 bit. Vista uses 256 bit graphics. First thing to solve this problem. You will need a Graphics card that can support Graphics from 8 bit to 1024 bit Graphics. You can do this one of two ways. Either buy a 2 pound graphics card from years ago that will most likely require a Mother board with an AGP slot and only support 8 bit to 16 bit graphics, or buy a really expensive Graphics card for 2600 pound that requires two PCI-E slots, a power supply capable of supplying 1800 watts or more and a DUAL CPU Motherboard capable of taking two AMD 16 core processors and a minimum of 16 GB of RAM. The Mother Bord would cost about the same as the Graphics card, the Power Supply would cost around 160 and the RAM would cost around the same as the power supply for the DDR-3 model, which is what you would need.
The Hardware required to run an expensive Graphics Card capable of running 16 bit Graphics is not capable of running the software required for 16 bit Graphics on cheap graphics card.
This is the same if you reverse the scenario.
A Cheap Graphics Card will not run 16 bit Graphics software with cheap hardware.
What you need to do this is both Cheap Hardware and Cheap Software or Expensive Hardware and Expensive software.
Old fashioned software will not run on modern Hardware and it is the same for the reverse.

I wish to change the screen resolution of ASUS netbook EEE PC 1005 HA with 10.5" from 1024x600 to 1024x768+ pl help me what to do

I think you mean 800X600 to 1024X768 or higher..
The reason why you cannot increase the resolution and the bit color to higher than 8 or 16 bit color is because the incorrect video driver was installed.
Download and install the correct video driver for your model laptop.
You can download the device drivers from ASUS WEB site.Select your model motherboard/computer/laptop, and make sure you select driversthat matches your Windows operating system. Please click on this link to theirWEB support site : -

Have old compaq Deskpro EN ENS815EC733 M1BU

I would buy a cheap usb card to fit into a pci slot on the old computer.
Otherwise you would need a serial cable (if your laptop has a serial port) if not it would be a serial to usb plus the software to transfer, i would say far too much trouble.
A usb card is a couple £/$

Pictures on the internet are blurry

The "laseramp" said is very useful.

But there is a problem also can cause the laptop battery picture blurry. Internet Setting is wrong.

Just open the IE then click tools options above then - internet options - advanced- show picture and auto change the picture size.

Just select the above two options. Hopes that help you.

Red blinking light when on my compaq deskpro en pc

Probably your power supply. They are pretty cheap to replace. If it's plugged into a power bar then try plugging it directly into a wall socket just to make sure it isn't your power supply.

My graphic become blur

You need to switch it to 32-bit, not 16 bit. DX9 drivers shouldn't be an issue, but if all else fails re-installing you video card drivers might help.

Hope that helps,
