CD-Rom programs dont run
Posted on 2004-10-14
I have a Compaq Presario 5441 desktop series PC. 475 Mhz cpu. 64 MB memory. 7.85 GB hard drive. Windows 98 SE. The problem is running programs from a cd. Some CD's I can install but then I get an error and it wont run. One error I received was 'runtime error 429 activex component can't create object'. Other CD's I can install but it just doesnt respond at all when I try to run it (I was able to install and run a Transparent language cd made in 1998) . My question is, what is wrong with my CD drive? Does it need more memory? Or a hardware and OS upgrade?
