  1. Hey im new to the site, by searching google this looked like a good
    site to join for help so thats what i did

    Well my problem i need help with is:

    When i go to play a game eg.(Sims, Age of empires, NBA 2002, Fifa 2002) It dosnt do anything all it does is restart the comp.
    Then when the computer is booting back up. A Blue screen comes up saying
    something along the lines of: One of your drives needs scanning to try
    and recover or something like that. And my guess is its trying to recover the game because next time i go to find the game the whole game has been wiped. Im not to sure what the problem is but ive noticed quite alot of threads around like this one. So just wondering if someone can help me.

    My Computer is a Packard Bell iMedia P828

    The specs are:
    Intel Pentium 2.8ghz
    256mb ram
    Radeon 9200 128mb

    PLEASE HELP ME

    Have you tried scanning your disk for problems (corruption)?
    You can do that with the default Windows Checkdisk, but be sure to do a surface scan too.

    Have you tried checking your PC with an AV software? (NOD32 is excellent if you already dont have AV installed)


    It's very weird that the whole game becomes deleted...
