Not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows

by chaotickid194 / February 13, 2006 8:12 AM PST

I have tried everything to get my program to work, but I can't.
Now when I try to install the program MS-DOS flashes up then disappears.
I went to;en-us;324767
but that didn't help. And my computer did not come with the Windows XP CD.
I checked I have autoexec.nt,, and config.nt in the system32 folder.
I also tried installing the program on a Windows 98 computer and it still didn't work.

Give some information about the program

Give it's name, where you got it (i.e. download, purchase, etc). Does it come with any instructions or system requirements. How old is it? Perhaps the error is proper.

Okay, first the program is a 14 day trial of a PC game I got off the internet.
It's in .EXE file right now. If you must know, it's the game Dark Age of Camelot.
This is all I can find on my computer:
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition,
version 2002, service pack 2.
Compaq Presario AMD Athlon(tm) XP 3200+
2.20 GHz, 448 mb of ram.
If you need anything else I think you might have to tell me how to find it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
