I own the game heroes of might and magic 4 the problem is that i got a new computer (and threw away my old one) and while i have found my play disk for the game i cant find my install disk

You can't copy the game files from the old PC even if you had it. Unless you have a friend who also has the same version of the game, you can't really do much with it.
I checked ebay out, and found several sellers who have the game for $10-15, but the best deal I found was from Steam ( They have the newer version of Heroes 5 for only 6.69 this week only, normally it's 9.99 but still a good deal, or you can get both expansion packs for $20.07 on sale (reg. 29.99).
It's a good deal but Steam is an online thing, so you download it instead of receiving a game disc. It's handy though, because if you ever need to re-install it, you can through steam, and you don't need codes or anything either.

My computer is saying the sims 2 double deluxe installed but i cant find it no where on my computer and when i put it in the install comes up and it says its already installed but cant find it

The game files are in the Program Files folder of your C drive. You can actually perform a file search from File Explore. However, if you are talking about your saved games, then those will be in your User folder in some location depending on which Windows Operating System you have installed.

I have lost my sims 3 and sims 3 ambitions serial number I have no clue how to get a new one or to restore it please help

If the game is currently installed on a computer you can find the serial numbers within the windows registry. If you choose to do this just be very careful to only click on the needed items and folders.
If you have windows XP click start, then click run. Type in regedit and press enter.
For windows vista and windows 7 click the windows icon in the bottom left and in the search bar type in regedit and press enter.
Double click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
Double click on Software
Double click on Electronic Arts
Double click on EA Games
Double click on Sims
Double click on Sims 3
Click on ergc
Under data in the column that comes up your serial key should be listed.

Regarding games...

There are a lot of bugs in the beta version of vista. New drivers or premature older video card drivers may not work very well with some games.

go into the control panel->administrative tools and open "event viewer", look for logs at the time your computer shut down and it might suggest for a possible cause.

To add to that a new service pack is already out for vista. These usually come out after all the minor fixes pile up to a certain amount.

i would recommend you update all the drivers and if that does not work you should look into getting a final version of vista.

Windows xp runs faster than vista for games in my opinion.
