Problem with video games RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have a problem with video games on Windows 8.1.

    On my Windows 7 I could play all games without any problems.

    Now I installed Windows 8.1 and I have problems with running video games: lower FPS, game breakdowns and sometimes even texture problems inside the game.

    I tried to reinstall both Windows and Graphic drivers. I tried several versions of drivers.

    I have Radeon HD 6870 and AMD Phenom II X4 955, SSD disk, 12 GB RAM.

    The point is: the same games works perfect on Windows 7 but doesn't work right on Windows 8.1.

    Can you, please, tell me if is there any other solution except going back to Windows 7 ?

  • Hi,

    Try running the games in Compatibility Mode for Windows 7.

    Hope this helps.

  • It doesn't help at all. Everything is the same.

  • Hi,

    Please verify if these games are compatible with Windows 8.1.

    If yes, please download and install the proper version of game file and driver.
