Why can't I play any games on Vista HP properly?
I though I had the top of the line computer software. I understand XP will no longer be available soon. I hate to say this but the XP worked SUPER wonderfully for PC games. I used to buy new adventure games all the time. However, Vista Home Premium 1601 build is terrible for gamers like myself. I wish they would come up with a fix to this problem as I wanted to get into game testing but now I find it impossible with Vista and all its problems from downloading to game freezes. When I tried to play my games (even those that say they ARE compatible for Vista) I noticed that there was always an error a problem and when it finally downloaded, it was a black screen. Even when I have switched the compatibility option to XP or NT even for older versions running games as administrator and disabeling visual as all the other FAQ show, it just does not work. I am fed up with Vista for gaming purposes and am concidering downgrading to XP until they fix this problem. Does anyone know of a patch or other solutions not mentioned here? Other than "don't play pc games on vista" or just throw all old games out the window?
