...................OK lets put this in good female terms here If you have a shoe rack in your closet that holds 10 shoes perfectly and it has 10 pairs of shoes on it then it is full. The next pair of shoes will not fit. So yes, that is exactly why :) In order to fix that, go into "add remove programs" and delete some thing you do not use...make sure that YOU DO NOT DELETE anything that you do NOT KNOW WHAT IT IS!!!!!!! You could do some damage...If you have old games you dont play anymore, uninstall those :) Use google to look things up that you dont know about as well :)
Any legal computer manufacturer/programmer doesn't want you to play free games off the internet; it's bad business for their business partners.. To fix this you either need to have a "crack" for that game (usually provided on the website to download pirated games), or you burn the whole game (absolute everything burned off the cd exactly as it would be on the cd, otherwise it wouldn't work) unto a cd, therefor effectively making a game, or you make the whole program a .iso file (.iso files are the equivalent of a cd in your drive), mount it on your comp, and play. If you really liked a game I recommend you actually buy it to show your appreciation, otherwise, hope I helped ;)
Want to clean computer. had vista pre-installed, no disc was given & noone told me about making recovery disc?
Can I use a Dell XP pro installation disc to reinstall XP home on an old laptop that I have lost the disc for?
I would like to clarify one thing to you first. Downloading is not the same as installing. A program may be downloaded from the internet but it may not necessarily run if it is not installed yet. Installing is a different thing and comes after downloading. Next, your drive D may be full because of junk. Try to clean your hard drive it with this to make some room: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner Note that you may not get a drastic increase in space unless you uninstall some of the stuff that you don't need. If you still need more space on D and have lots of space on C then you may adjust your partition with this: http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.h...
The os is always first need to have some sort of graphics to see what you are doing, all graphics card have a generic vga driver install so you can see the display and the last software to be install ,the motherboard drivers are next, usually the chipset and usb drivers, and then the graphic card drivers
Well first off that computer is extremely ancient and discontinued, although that is not important. That's more of a tort on my behalf. Anyways to answer your question. If your disc D is full, you should still be allowed to install and download games to the C: drive. Make sure that the download paths are set to a location in the C drive. If they are not, then your computer will read the D drive instead. It will see that there is no space on that drive whatsoever and the download will not occur. You can usually find the download path in the settings of your browser/software you use for your downloads. If the location is not set to the C drive then you will need to set it to a proper location of your choosing located inside the drive.
As ned said yes, beacuse if you download the game onto your hard drive it downloades almost all of the data of the disk. So you dont really need the disk ( except of course to play the game!) Hope this helped!
