Fresh Windows Installation but not games

Fresh Windows Installation but not games
Views: 21
I just installed Win 7 Pro, and when I go out to the Games Explorer, there are no games
listed. I've turned off some Win 7 services for security and I'm wondering if there is a
specific service which is required to run games.

Reinstalling widows : How to save configurations ? Icon

I'm buying a new system, so I will have to make a fresh install of windows. I spent many hours customizing windows and editing settings. I was wondering if it would be possible to save those preferences and restore it to my new Windows 7 installation ?

For example, I made a custom theme for windows 7, I know I can save and export it, then import it on the new Windows 7 installation. But what about other settings ? Like everything in the control panel

Best Windows OS for classic and modern gaming

Best Windows OS for classic and modern gaming Icon

I used to have a Windows computer running XP before I switched to Mac. I love my Macbook and all, but I miss playing all my old Windows games. These games include Windows 95/98 games, Windows XP games, and DOS games.

I've decided I want to get a Windows computer so I can play all those games. Before I start building my computer, I want to know what Windows OS to get.

Here are some of the games I have that I want to play:
Simcity Classic
Simcity 2000
Simcity 3000
Simcity 4
The Sims
The Sims 2
Sid Meier's Pirates (XP)
Half Life
Half Life 2
Rollercoaster Tycoon
And a lot more (including modern) games.

I want an OS that can play modern games in high resolution (I'll get a good graphics card/CPU) and that is compatible with old games. These all worked fine on my old XP, and I will get that again if I have to, but last time I tried XP it seemed a bit dated compared to Windows 7.

What operating system do you recommend I get that can play old and modern games?

HP DV6t-7000 - BSOD in Windows 8 and "No drives were found." in Windows 7 Installation

HP DV6t-7000 - BSOD in Windows 8 and "No drives were found." in Windows 7 Installation Icon

So I installed windows 8 on my HP DV6t-7000 and it regularly gave me BSOD until eventually it stopped booting all together.

I have tried doing a fresh install of both Windows 8 and Windows 7 but both provide me with the error that "no drives were found. click load driver to provide a mass storage for installation"

I have run the computer through partition wizard and formatted the hard drive to NTSC but the installation disks still wont recognize the drive, nor will Ubuntu for that matter.

 

No Boot Blank Cursor

No Boot Blank Cursor Icon

When I boot my laptop (acer aspire 4745), after the start-up screen, the screen goes blank with a cursor blinking on the top left corner.

What I have tried:
1. Re-installed Windows 7 successfully
2. Run the System repair tool using the installation CD

I am not sure what next to do. The laptop detects the hard-drive, as I am able to perform a fresh installation (I can even connect to wi-fi during the installation).
