    my laptop spec :
    as*s N46VZ
    OS Win 8 64 bit
    intel i5
    nvidia gt 650 M

    yeah, i'm installing from a cd disk, on windows 7 it worked perfectly fine..

    the problems is when i open the program, it doesn't opened..
    it appeared on task manager, but only using 0% CPU..

    what kind of screenshots do you want ?

    thanks for your answer

    Windows 8 can play all the games and run all the applications that run on Windows 7. I play Crysis, Assassins' Creed, Batman Arkham City, Need For Speed, TESV: Skyrim, etc... and everything works fine, there are no compatibility issues for me.

    I have only found one game that I can't get working and its really really old. Armed and Dangerous ....It cost me 3 quid brand new from Amazon so I'm not heartbroken about it.

    Borderlands (and Borderlands 2) work fine under Windows 8. I run Borderlands 2 through Steam. I have over 200 games that all run fine through Steam and Windows 8. No problems yet.

    Just figured I would update by saying that I have been able to get both Total War (Medieval and Shogun, outlined in my earlier posts) working perfectly in an XP VM. It's not optimal but it's acceptable as long as the games play. I havent tried Bochs.
