right click my computer/properties/hardware/device manager
expand IDE ATA/ATAPI CONTROLLER
right click primary/seconday ide channel, should b seconday
properties/advanced settings/current transfer mode
and it should tell you wat its running, u can change by where it says transfer mode change it to PIO Only, if its on DMA if available

Strange.I have installed all this games and don´t had any problems.Even as i played them there don´t seemed any problems.

Bloodlust please post your system so we can maybe get more infos to solve this problem.You also should look at the HP´s of the Games.Aaybe there already exists a F.A.Q for this. :)

This error could be caused for a number of reasons, last time I was recieving this error was due to a faulting stick of ram, but it could be related to your swap file or a number of other things.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
