I don't know what I was doing when this happened, but basically although Pinball seems to be there, it will not start (the title screen comes up but that's it), so it looks like it is damaged in some way?

I run XP Home with SP2.

Windows was already pre-installed (an OEM version?), and it is a genuine copy. I don't think there was a Windows disc included with the PC (a HP Pavilion), although one of the drives is a recovery drive. However, there does not seem to be (I don't think so anyway), any way of restoring Windows?

Add/Remove Windows components does not seem to help either.

Can anybody help with this please, as I have been going mad trying to work this out?

(Tried system restore points as well)

God only knows what else is wrong with Windows now.

I should also point out, to further complicate my woes I have no backup drive, so until I can get one of those I am really stuffed...

Thanks for reading this...

I look at Kelly's Korner all the time and never did notice a fix for Pinball. :thumbsup:
Thanks for posting the solution and did you know there are many cheats available for 3D Pinball?

It's number 336.

Thanks, although I prefer to do without the cheats myself.
