  1. Can't play pc game I've been playing for years


    So I've been playing Age of Mythology since it came out and I am so upset that now I am unable to play it potentially because of the new Windows 10 update. I have had this problem since the middle of last year and have been trying on and off to get it to work. I have googled all the fixes and have tried all of them. I can't go back to older Windows as its been too long since it updated and I've tried installing the game with compatibility with Windows 8 as I don't have the dropdown option for Window 10 and it just wont work. I really don't know anything about laptops so there could be something I'm missing I just don't understand the terminology and don't want to mess things up more. Please if anyone knows what I need to do please help? I miss playing this game so much.

    :)

  3. Issue when playing games

    Hello,

    This issue when you're playing games can be due to incompatible driver since it can be resolved by updating the display driver. However, we would like to know more about your concern. Kindly provide us the needed information below:

    • Which device are you using in playing games?
    • Is this issue happening when you're playing online or offline games?
    • Is there a connected USB device?
    • Are you getting any error messages?

    As an initial recommendation, we suggest that you try reinstalling the driver instead of updating it. Here's how:

    • Open Device Manager.
    • Right-click (or tap and hold) the name of the device.
    • Select Uninstall.
    • Restart your PC and Windows will attempt to reinstall the driver.

    Looking forward to your response for any updates.
