I haven't been at this forum in ages, but I felt it was one of the "better" places to turn for help.
I am using an HP Pavillion home PC. I have Wndows service pack 2. In trying to find and play a game that was downloaded to my system from the set up CD. I was able to play all the games before I was ever hooked up to the internet highway.
I don't know why this game disappeared. It must be buried in one of my drives somewhere. At any rate, I did some research on the web yesterday + came across some free tech support forum, after Googling Windows Space Cadet 3-D Pinball.
I'm a real novice here, so please, spell out very plainly, step by step, what I need to do to get this game back. One suggestion I tried from the other forum was to copy/paste notepad%SystemRoot%\Inf\Sysoc.inf in the start-run box. Then I scrolled to Pinball=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,pinball.inf,Hide,7
I deleted the word"Hide",clicked on file,exit + chose yes to save changes
I went back to add/remove programs,then add/remove Windows components,accessories+utilities,details,games,details. I unchecked the box for games,then rechecked it.Then clicked on okay.
I still can't seem to get this game to show up in all programs under games. It originally came with my system's start up CD, so it has to be here somewhere.
Other info you may need is:
Processor 2691 MHzx86 Family 15 model2 stepping 9GenuineIntel
screen resolution 1024x758 pixels
A long time ago I contacted HP thru "chat" but they were unable to offer any help. I'm counting on someone here to help me fix this.
Thank you so much for your feedback
