Hi, I had a simple question that I just can't find the answer to. I have two monitors, a 32" LCD and a 19" CRT.

Flight Simulator 2004 by flynryan692
Hey there, so I was having problem before where FS would freeze and the sound would make a loop sort of sound. I remember doing a bunch of searching around and I found a way so that when I click the fs9.exe vista would switch the theme from aero to basic until I closed FS. That solved everything. Well I reformatted and I can't figure out how I did that nor can I find the link to how to do...

FSX won't load up after defragmentation by Blue4
I bought the boxed FSX Deluxe Edition and when I start the program right after I install it everything runs fine until startup of a flight. I set the settings to max after I ran a system test on my comp saying I could with the 8G of ram, Intel Quad Core and the Nvidia GT220, but it skipped so I figured it was because of FSX being 15Gb and alot of fragmented files. So I ran the defrag and...

Knights of the Old Republic 2 stops running... by Hydra
Hi, all. I have a problem starting KOTOR2 on Vista. There's a error message each time starting up that the program has stopped running and needs to close (I've managed to get past the first cutscene several times in the beginning before the error shows). The error has been reported, but no solutions. I know my computer isn't especially designed for gaming, but it still is able to run Halo CE...

Can I play Vista version of SpiderSolitaire on XP Pro? by alicorn2
I prefer the version of SpiderSolitaire that came with my Vista computer (version 6.0.6001.18000 of spidersolitaire.exe), and I'd like to copy it to my XP Pro computer (which currently has version 5.1.2600.5512 of spider.exe). The biggest problem is that my Vista computer is 64 bit and XP is only 32 bit. Is there any way to get the Vista version onto XP? Thanks!

The problem is that when I try to run these games or the pic. screensaver at the native resolution or anything above 800x600 it will crash the computer, just a black screen promping a reboot.

Spider solitaire unbelievable score by j1169
Vista Home Prem. I looked at my statistics and couldn't believe it. My top score is 1275! I know there must be a glitch from lots of "undo", maybe in conjunction with a "saved game". I know I never won in 25 moves ;). Anyone else have this happen? -- j1169

Graphics glitch while playing BiA:HH by Joćo Fernandes
A long time ago, I got Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway. I decided to use it on my old Vista laptop, since I knew it worked on that operating system. Problem is, when I went to play the game, it was super slow and there were no graphics. Whatsoever. But here's the weird part: I installed Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 (a game designed for Windows XP) on the same laptop and surprisingly, it...

DirectX 7 Vista compatible? by daztrue
From searching the forums I've found that it's a common problem to find games that were fine pre-Vista throwing up error messages due to the requirement of DirectX 7 - despite later versions already being installed. I've already installed dxsetup.exe from Microsoft's Download Center, which claims to be backwards compatible from v9.0c, although I've read elsewhere that versions 7 and/or 8 are...
