Preferred Solution: How can I play Doom Trilogy on Windows 7 laptop

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there,
I recently acquired a new Lenovo laptop (with Windows 8) and transferred all of my files onto it. However, when I am attempting to play either Ultimate and Final Doom, or Doom 2 (Windows 1995 games), I am encountering problems upon launching the game. Just before the game loads, I am presented with the following message:
"Doom95 was unable to access the video card - check your DirectX installation! ( Error 100 ) "
I looked online for a solution, but I cannot find anything specific, although I see that adjusting the resolution may work. When adjusting to any resolution, however, I am still facing the same error. Would it be possible to get around it somehow? *Note that I was able to play the games previously on Windows 7.
Any help/advice offered would be greatly appreciated!

Hi everyone. I run an R9 270 while attempting to play Doom and even at low I still get 30 frames. After 3 years of the same graphics I think it's time to upgrade for the future.

Hey all,
Just thought i'd post in here 'cos its not a game problem.
I thought you all might like to know about Doom for the Nokia 7650! I'm sure some of you know about it, its a slimmed down version of the original Doom that you can play on your Nokia 7650. Its brilliant, suprisingly easy to control, got great graphics, and sounds excellant, just like the original.
Its a great piece of software, despite the fact it takes up over half of the phone memory, and requires the other half to play! The installation is a bit tricky aswell, as you have to transfer the installation files one by one from the PC to the phone, which is quite lengthly aswell.
Its very much worth it though. Its hilarious when you're playing it on the bus, and all people hear is the sound of chainguns and shotguns going off! People even recognise the classic sound of the doors when they open and close. You can turn it up really loud. Anyway, here are some links to it, and the great thing is that there's a freeware version. http://www.infosync.no/news/2002/n/2412.html

Recently purchased the Broken Sword Trilogy and got round to playing it yesterday, I played for a bit and then when I wentto save the game it wouldn't let me. The error message just said it couldn't write to the path selected and it doesn't give you an option to save anywhere else.

I checked the directory out and it was set to read only, so I changed that and tried again but still the same error.

Any help?


A:Broken Sword Trilogy

Hey there,
I've got this game and I had the same problem. I've got it fixed.
I'm going to assume you have Vista.
You need to right click the desktop icon for BS1 (and the others) and go into Properties. Then, click the Compatibility tab. On that tab, you will see a checkbox that says "Run this program as an administrator". You want to make sure that's checked.
Now, that alone will fix your problem. However, to prevent any other problems, I would recommend that you get the most recent version of ScummVM first.
You can get that here:
Once you download the new ScummVM, you'll need to change your shortcut a little.
Change the target to

"C:\Program Files\ScummVM\scummvm.exe" -cmastertronic.ini sword1
(This is assuming you used the default path for ScummVM). This will load it in the new version of ScummVM.
If you've saved already, then it will ask you to convert them. This is normal.

Now, if, for some reason, you can't get it to work by giving it admin right, you just need to change where the game makes its save file. You do this by starting ScummVM and going into the options. Change the save path to something like My Documents or something similar.

A:Doom 3 on Windows 7 64 bit?

I have an update, I copied the contents of the disc onto my desktop in a folder, if I run the doom3.exe in the setup/data folder which came on the disc itself, the game runs just fine. It is really weird. But it will not run if I run it from the installation directory which is
C:/Program Filesx86?Doom 3/Doom3.exe

I tried re-copying that exe into the installation directory, but it does the same thing. I mean I don't mind running the game like that from here on, but do you think that will get in the way of adding any mods too it, because there are a lot of cool mods for this game? Also I noticed that the game will not allow me to change it's resolution. I can run it in ultra high, but i t won't change the resolution.

Windows Media Player doesn't play MPEG-2 videos (DVD) by default.

Or, you can install the VLC player, which already includes that MPEG-2 codec.

After trying to solve this problem for a long, long time. (Problems with windows live & games that require it.) i finally decided that the only solution would be to reinstall windows. but ofcourse, i had to encounter yet another problem while on my way to reinstall windows 7.

If I were to translate the error message, it would be: Windows is unable to restart the computer in Windows Recovery Environment to complete the recovery operation.

I have a feeling whatever is preventing me to reinstall windows is preventing me to launch GFWL/MSN. whoever knows a workaround to reinstall W7 or how to solve this ?unsolvable? problem gets 3 internets.

Oh, hi there!

So my latest tale of woe begins. I got married on the 2nd and just now got my computer moved to the new place.

Well, it had been on this whole time but I thought nothing of it since I usually leave it on for extended periods of time anyway. Aparently, it was up to some mischief while its mistress was away because when I went to start it up after lovingly toting it on my lap all the way home in the cab of the moving truck, it told me it had not shut down propperly (because it was frozen when I went to shut it down for packing so I just powered it off) so no biggie, I told it to Start Normally. It seemed ok up to the Windows splash emblem at which point it seemed to be going on and on and on with the little waving windows flag so I powered down and restarted again.

Except now, it will only flash the Acer screen at the beginning, flicker to black, flicker again, sit for several minutes on a black screen and restart itself. If I let it sit, it gleefully plays ring around the rosie all on its lonesome indeffinitely! I've tried to get it to switch to the start in safe mode screen but it wont even cooperate that far.

Any suggestions from you all would be awesome because, well, you guys are awesome! I'm afraid I may be out of my league with this one and have to bring in a pro because I have no boot disks that I know of.

Hi, it's BKLoCo here again.

Part 1: Invisible
Every time I try and start up Windows XP, I get a message after pressing F1 to continue and what not. It says "No NTRDL found. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart".
Obviously its a hard drive issue.
All the plugs are plugged in correctly (master first, power in, etc.), and it just doesn't notice it.

A:Windows XP Computer of Doom Part 1

That error message means the computer cannot find something to boot with. Either you've lost the Master Boot Record or the hard drive is physically bad.

You can try chkdsk from a WinXP disk. I fixed one last night that had the same problem this way. Or, if you are lucky a Repair Install might fix it. Otherwise you are looking at a New Install, if the HD is still good.

Is there data on it that has value?

Hi all,

I have an HP G62 laptop with windows 7 x64 and got The Black Screen.
here are the symptoms:
-black screen,

-The hard drive spins trying to boot then stops after a couple of minutes tries again.
-the fan runs constantly
-the caps lock led is on and off
-no CD in tray
-At power up I do not see the ( underscore on top left corner) , F8 does nothing it is totally black.

-plugged external monitor (in case of display failure)
-changed the Ram sticks (in case of display failure)

nothing seems to work
any suggestions? other than obvious toss?

A:Black screen of doom windows 7

Unplug A/C and battery, hold power button to release residual power, plug back in A/C to see what happens. Then plug in battery to see if it can power PC after reset.

Next take the RAM sticks out to see if you get beep codes indicating life in the mobo.

If so replace them one at a time to see if you can get any display.

If not remove hard drive to see if it is blocking boot, although you should get some image on your external monitor if there is still a display adapter or mobo life.

If by slim chance the HD is blocking boot, try booting into a disk to see if it comes alive. You'd then need to slave the HD to another PC to rescue files, wipe it and replace to reinstall.

Report back results on these and one of the hardware guys will probably recognize the condition.

Sometimes the wire harness on the laptop monitor needs reconnecting, for which there may be a video for you model if you google it.

Hey there.

So I'm having a problem playing .wmv files on my system (it's not just WMP). Everytime I play a file with a .wmv extension, the file will play, with proper audio and everything, but the colour will be messed up, almost as if the player (could be WMP, Realplayer, Quicktime etc...) is playing in negative mode. I can't fix it even with codecs. I've downloaded numerous codec packs, codecs from Microsoft, third parties, everywhere, and I can't seem to fix it. This only happens with wmv files, mpg, avi, mpeg etc...all play perfectly.

Running XP Pro

Thanks in advance

I know she could just play the files in wmp11 but she loves the media center and would just like to solve it.

Would appreciate any solution. If this information doesn't help, I will go to the laptop with the question and post it again with the specs. Thanks!!

I need help finding the right connection cable to connect my IBM thinkpad to my TV. The TVs that will be used will mostlikely not have S video ports, just the line in video and audio jacks(stereo). The laptop does not have an S video port.
Any assistance would be appreciated.

Also, will the audio/video quality be ok? I would like to use the laptop DVD player on the TV to avoid a DVD purchase right now.

Best Buy and Radio Shack were of no help.
Thanks for any help.

Unfortunately Windows 8 and later does not support DVD playback, unless you have Windows Media Center;
however, it's just as easy to use VLC Media Player.

I just received a brand new Dell Inspiron 15 that runs windows 7 for Christmas and tried to play a DVD but was given an error message that said:
"Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card."

I clicked Web Help and it said the following:
"Windows Media Player error C00D1163
You got an error because there's a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder, and video card.
In some cases, you can resolve the problem by updating the device driver for your video card. Here's how:

Check Windows Update for any available video card updates or checking your PC or video card manufacturer's website for an updated driver.

If you're running Windows 7, you can try to fix the problem by using the Windows Media Player DVD troubleshooter.
In general, to play DVDs, you must have a DVD-ROM drive and a compatible software or hardware DVD decoder installed on your PC. If you don't have these, DVD commands and options won't appear in the Player and you can't play DVDs. For more information about DVD decoders, see plug-ins and add-ons for Windows Media Player."

I used the troubleshooter but it didn't help and I looked at the plug-ins and add-ons for Windows Media Player and nothing was useful.

If anyone could please offer any information on what's causin... Read more
