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

I have a copy of starcon 3 but it won't install on my computer my os is windows 7 but it says that the game isn't compatable with my version of windows


Hi, welcome to Fixya. I hope my info helps you.
What it said is true. Starcon 3 is an OLD game, with compatability with win 95, and DOS. I think there may be a way for you to get to work though, right click on the installer program, and put the program in compatability mode, and tell it win 95 for the o.s. If that doesn't work, then download a program called DOSBOX, and run the installer with it, Dosbox is designed for just this sort of thing.
I hope that you do get it to work, as Starcon 3 was a really good game when it came out.

System is getting slowed down


Some tips to improve system speed. In your control panel click on performance and maintenance. Run a disk cleanup first; then run the defragmenter. Once you have done this reboot and see if speed improves. Other options would be to upgrade to more RAM, faster cpu, and better graphics card, but if you just want system to run like new do the steps I said above. Hope this helps & good luck. I would appreciate if you take a moment to rate this solution. Thank you.

How to install XP on pre loaded Vista in HP Laptop


I bought a cheap Compaq laptop that came with Vista Home Premium. The speed was horrendous! Anyway, I received the same no hard drive found error. To solve the problem, I went into the system config (BIOS) by pressing F10 on startup, and turned off SATA hard drive support (its supposed to make the hard drive run faster), I rebooted, inserted my Win XP Pro disc and viola, it detected the hard drive. I would say that the laptop runs a good 40% faster than before. Vista is a big no no when it comes to low end laptops built for word processing and internet browsing.
