Compatibility issue of drivers in 64 bit Windows 7

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -


I have a 64 bit OS windows 7 version. When I was trying to play games like Spiderman 3, Persian Sands of time, which are older games, I am facing a problem with the features of the game, where all features are not working as expected and also there is an issue with NVIDIA drivers in my computer.

Can anyone suggest ideas to solve this problem?

Thank you.

Compatibility issue of drivers in 64 bit Windows 7


If you are using the 64 bit OS, then first check some parameters, to ensure the compatibility of the older version games or software.

Try to perform the following steps:

  • Disable Desktop Composition.
  • Disable Themes.
  • Run as Admin.
  • Disable Display Scaling.
  • Install in user folder as opposed to Program files (normally not necessary).

Video Drivers seem decently backwards compatible, though sometimes artifacts will appear. In general though most games can eventually get working. It depends on how much effort you want to put into it.

You can also try to execute the game in Windows XP mode. If VMware software is installed in your computer, you can change the Windows 7 OS to Windows XP mode.

Also check the updates for NVIDIA, in the websites to enhance the driver performance in the computer.

You can also try ATI graphics card and its drivers to solve the issue.
