Haha. Not laughing at you.

If you try to play games that old on a new OS like Vista, it won't go. You would have to try to run the game in compatability mode. Which means when you ry to install the game, right click and propeties and check the tabs out.

I tried playing a game from the 90's too, on my computer with Windows Xp, and it did the same thing. I tried lots of stuff, but then I just didn't have time to mess around with it so I left it.

What I'm trying to say is, that Vista is too ahead for the game software. And vise versa. The game code is too old for Vista. Vista would have to downgrade to play the game and that could bring some problems. The computer prosseser would have to work harder and that could cause the game to lag and even the whole computer to lag. LAAAAAG real bad.

Anyways, keep trying and hope this helps.

I was playing fate and the screen wentblack and when i tried to restart it told me it was already running and to switch or close


Since you didn't mention the Operating System installed on your computer, I will assume you are running Microsoft Windows. First let's terminate the running program, after that I'll explain and will give some tips on how to avoid this to happen again.

Right-Click the "TaskBar", select "Task Manager" then, click "Processes" tab, again select "Show Processes from all users" and locate "Fate-wildgames.exe" or "Fate-....." something similar starting with fate, right-click the "Fate......." and select "End Process Tree", confirm the warning by clicking "yes", once it's done, check the processes lists once again and make sure no more Fate... is running. If so terminate the same by right-clicking and select "End Process Tree", but I hope there's no more...

Close the Task Manager and try opening the Fate game again, it should work fine. To avoid this, you need to update the graphics card drivers, run minimum numbers of programs during the play, etc...etc.. you'll see the improvement. Upgrading the Ram may also improve, but I can't guarantee, if in case you have had enough Ram installed on your machine. Uninstall unnecessary programs from your computer, etc..etc... and lot more..

If the problem still persists, restart your computer, and try again. I will assist you, if you need further help.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do you remove Windows Vista from acer 5535. i want to play my games but i got a feeling they wont run since vista is a memory hog. and since its got 3 gig im afraid it will lag alot. games needed to...


If you want to install another operating system on the laptop all you have to do is boot your laptop from your installation disc. You can then format your hard drive, and do your install. Here is the catch; you have to make sure you have all of the drivers for your laptop for that version of Windows. I've been able to play a lot of games in Vista with the Comparability mode turned on. Before you get rid of Vista it might be worth trying that out.

Think of the following solution:
1.Make sure your operating system is windows vista when playing vista games otherwise it will have a problem.
2.Make sure your video card is 512mb or higher when using windows vista operating otherwise it will cause a problem.
2. Make sure you have a correct of driver of your video card. If you're not sure download it and install it again on you computer.

Is this some kind of problem for you? Vista is fierce serious! Perhaps it does something more disruptive than playing, though?
