IPod 160g shows error message when trying to synch
I have an older laptop, a 4-year-old HP pavilion ze4600, and a new 160g iPod. About four months ago I moved my iTunes library onto a 160g external HP media drive. The iPod's been synching and working fine for five months until recently, and started having trouble synching about the same time I downloaded album artwork for my whole iTunes library. I'm starting to suspect these old USB 1.0 ports. Do you think that's the reason my iPod won't synch? Is the addition of videos and album artwork too much information to be squeezed through 2 USB 1.0 ports?

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.
If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, until they won't charge up at all. A new replacement battery will fix this problem.
This usually means Hard Drive failure, are your connections good? Is this a new drive? If you know you have a drive with os on it then boot files could be damaged. Can you boot with os disk? You can do a repair from the windows disk in recovery mode. reset bios to default values. Last resort before saying maybe the drive controllers on motherboard are bad. Take apart and do good cleaning. This worked believe it or not on a stubborn laptop that I replaced Hard Drive and still was giving me similar errors. Client says computer has been working ever since.
This is going to be a problem with the power management system on the motherboard, it's a common problem. You will have to replace the motherboard in order to fix this. This is a good machine and can be fixed, but if you think it's time for a new one (and can stand the pain) go for it, besides this one will be totally obsolete soon, and you'll probably be ready for a new one within the next two years anyway.
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..
