95% of those which run on Vista 32-bit edition will run on Vista 64-bit edition. However, many which run on Windows XP won't run on Vista at all. Thus, I suggest listing the names here to find out if returning the computer and purchasing one with Vista (32-bit) would resolve the problem. Also, be sure to provide the exact error message, if any...it's possible it's just a graphics card driver that needs updated for the games to run.
Let us know.
I bought a new hP computer, has a triple core processor,640GB hard drive and 4 g of memory.
My old computer died from overheating and i was running XP
I don't do games, only my 10 year old granddaughter does games and we mostly use word, paint and things like that.
Let me first say I do Love Vista, I thought I would hate leaving xp behind. However all of my games etc will NOT work on the 64 bit, I have hundreds of dollars in things that will support XP and most likely would work on the Vista 32 (didn't know this when I bought the computer). I have spent days picking up software that is not supported on 64bit and now I am thinking I should return this, pay a stocking fee and try to find a computer with Vista 32 on it. I don't need the high memory or hard drice, it just happened to be a computer that I thought i would like.
I even tried loading some things up but they won't even load up, otherwise I could try using the compability option that is on the computer (right click on game, compability...etc). Can't even get to that point because my items won't load. I had to buy a new Virus protection, new printer/scanner etc to make things work on this computer.
I am having buyers regret and sometime in the next few days I am going to Circuit City and see what I can do to "downgrade". If anyone has any thoughts please let me know. Please keep it simple, I am not computer savy to make changes in hard drive etc.
one of the mcculleys!
