Helpp please - March 22nd 2010, 08:22 PM

Well i have a tablet hp tx1000 laptop and it works great it's just last year before Christmas and it accessed WiFi which it loses from time to time annoying i know but i was looking for antivirus and got a flipping virus thinking it was an antivirus i use >,< so i got a blue screen saying my laptop needs shutting down because of harmful software so i didn't touch it until my boyfriend brought an antivirus cd up last month we put it in but it wouldn't load. Also the virus seemed to have disappeared which is strange and i put the sims 3 in and that wouldn't load neither. My friend says i need to clean the cd drives on the laptop before hand and he's a computer geek lol. But i don't know how to do that and i'm scared the virus has affected it . My parents say i should use it more as it's just lacking dust i mean i can still draw on it but i miss my gaming on sims 3. I have two laptops but this one i'm using won't play sims 3 properly because of the requirements. I just want my Tablet back.

In other news i bought myself an Xbox 360 arcade on Saturday and i'm addicted to Final Fntasy XIII also my boyfriend gave me his old hardrive and i'm stressing over the Red Ring Of Death (RROD) i don't know why it's on my mind constantly i'm scared it will do it when one of my games are in, but people say as i have a new xbox i might be lucky.

Sorry this is long

I don't know anything about computers, but I can try and help you with the x360. The only time that the 'ring of death' occurs is when you leave a game paused in the same spot for a while. This then causes that ring, because the game is still spinning in the same spot with the laser pointed at it..

Hope you enjoy your 360

Thanks i never leave a game paused on it, so that's ok and my xbox hardly overheats i've just been on it for nearly 2 hours and it's still cool. Also i don't leave any games in just because my boyfriend's xbox done the red ring when he switched it on and i don't want to have to send it away and dread about not getting my game back lol.

uhh...did you make a backup cd?
If not, try rebooting windows at an earlier time frame (available for xp, unsure about newer versions.)
As for your sims situation,
Check the compatibility, it may be you bought an ubuntu version of the game (highly unlikely).
do you have enough video ram? Cpu speed? Ram? Do you have the right software for it? (e.g. DirectX)
