No Cd based games loading after restore

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

All started yesterday when i some how managed to lose practially all my files, well not lose, i was trying to show hidden files but like a noob i didnt look up how to do it and just fumbled about looking for a way,

anyway i right clicked my main profile and went to properties, i noticed the attrubites menu and hidden wasnt ticked, i ticked it and clicked apply to sub folders/files, hey presto my files vanished, again like a **** i tried to un do the problem but it wouldnt budge, so taking the lazy mans route i did a system restore to the previous day, all fine, apart from the fact that my games and over applications arent loading now...

Basically the cd rom drive is powered and working, i put the cd, prompt box appears asking weather to explore or auto run, and then i get asked weather i want to play, uninstall, readme, upgrade ect ect, i click play then nothing, some games give me the green bar going back and forth error message some do nothing,

Ive also done another system restore to BEFORE the last one, about a week ago, i havent done any driver upgrades or windows updates in the past week that i know of, so i thought that would rectify it, still no, ive tried to repair windows with vista disc thinking it might be a registry error () but it didnt really give me the option to do that, ive also re-installed 2142, still nothing.

As the title suggest i can play cd-less games, such as CSS, COD4, WW2OL,

pls help im soooooooo bored of cs xD
