What type of game is it? Is it an online game or a game from a CD? Do you have the latest updates? what type of processor and video card do you have? Do you have latest drivers?

Ah - its not Vista at fault here but the game - it does not recognise Vista properly. Re-install the game by righ clicking on the installer and choosing Troubleshoot Compatibility - then trouble shoot - say it worked on previous version of Windows

Vista will then Emulate XP and it should then work fine.

If this helped please vote kindly

Cannot install it correctly to windows vista laptop


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.

It could be a power problem when playing games.
When a games starts up the graphics card starts to draw more power from the system.
Its could be that your graphics card might need replacing or that your power supply might need upgrading. PC systems, more so gaming systems, like to have alot of power.
Also before this I would try and download the latest graphics card drivers, to see if that helps the problem.

I have a game which doesn't play on windows vista, i have acer aspire 3683wxmi laptop?


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