Has it happened with more than one disk?

Faulty disk?

What sort of games are you trying to load? and what sort of specs are the "old pc?"

hi flyingbrit
tried various games ie:scrabble, monopolly, sims
pc specs intel processor 702mhz,318mb memory,shard graphics 20 gig drive

From what I've been able to find, you may need to have a dedicated graphics card in the pc to play these type of games, rather than onboard graphics, and a 700 processor is a little under powered as well......
Sorry John
