There might be many reasons due to this. you might want to install updates for windows vista if you havent already youtube plays Html 5 so it should run perfectly fine unless your graphics card is having hiccups. I also suggest that you re install vista if you can you should backup your information and due a clean install and that will most certainly help you with your problem

I had my comp. fixed and they put windows vista home premium on here and i can't play my old games that need xp what can i do


You can do 2 things:
1 - try to run them in XP mode  - right click on its icon, then Properties, then Compatibility, check 'Run this program in compatibility mode for' and select Windows XP in the drop down menu and finally at the bottom of the compatibility tab, check 'Run this program as administrator'.
2 - install http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/ , configure it and in it install XP and all the soft with problems, starting with the games.

My games became in low speed but it has work good in win xp why


The reason your games run so much better on Windows XP vs. Windows Vista is because Windows Vista takes up more of your system resources....so your game has less resources to use , which makes it run slower.

To get your games running faster on Windows Vista your best bet would be to upgrade your RAM (Computer Memory). You can find out what type of RAM you need and purchase it here: http://www.upgradememory.com/configurator_1.cfm

The software company that wrote the game does not support Vista. Check back with them often to see if they will in the future.

Well sir that depends on the game itself, whether its creators want to make patches to play it on vista or not, try seeing the game author's site for more information.
