I cannot install a game from a disc - HELP!!

  u04moira 15:07 29 Dec 2008

I have a 3 month old Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Notebook/Laptop and cannot install a game from a disc that I bought in PC World.

I suspect that some software needs updating and/or that the problem relates to the fact that the lapgtop has Windows Vista but I am not sure.

Any assistance would be very gratefully received!

Thank you.

What game ? Some games require rather high VGA specs to run it could be that your laptop doesn't fit the bill.

Not sure of the exact title but it is a newish game I know (boyfriend's game not mine!)

Any ideas?

you'll need to post your laptop specs,looking at the minimum system requirements there's a good chance the laptop can't handle it :o(

If we knew what game we might be able to help.

Systems Requirement Labs, select the correct game name from drop down menu, and let it d'load the safe diagnostic. It will then tell u if the machine can run the game. click here

disc is damaged, as an alternative train of thought. Will it work on another PC?

just says it cannot install it?

What's the exact (word-for-word, including any codes) report that you get, and at what point?

Sorry I am being a big vague.
