I recently bought a new Dell XPS laptop and i was moving my files from the pc that i own to the laptop. When it came to a couple of games that i own, i was told that could just copy the game directory over and it would work. when io ran the game it errored and said it could not find a certian file in the register.
so then i was told to copy the registry keys over for the game and that would fix it. i was told to type regedit under start > run and go export the games registry file. then put it on the new computers by double clicking the reg file it makes when it exports.
well i did that and ran the game and it still errored. well i was going to give up, so i shutdown the laptop. when i came back and started it up it ran the dell splash screen and started to load windows XP pro but then errored to a blue screen saying that there is a "SYSTEM LICENCE VIOLATION".
It stays on that screen for around 3 seconds and then restarts. it then goes to the dell splash screen and then to an option that asked to:
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode With Command Prompt
Last known Good Configuration
Start windows normally
i have tried all of them multiple times and the computer just restarts over and over. i have preformed the full system scan at the computer start up, started it without the battery, without the hard drive, without each ram cards, without the dvd drive, with both OS(xp home it came with and xp pro i updated it with) and before it can read the cd to ask to install/repair it gives me the error.
basically ive tried everything i know how to do. If anyone can help me with this problem i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks alot.
