Can't play game with "Windows 8"?

My friend has just bought a new computer with Windows 8. The problem is that a game she plays online won't run. Yet it runs just fine on her old laptop that has Windows 7. Does anyone have any idea why this is? Is there a way to change the settings to allow the game to be played with Windows 8?

    Knowing which game you're having a problem with would be helpful, as would some information about the computer.

    I've played a lot of games on Windows 8, with very few problems. It could be a problem with that game, or you could need to update your drivers, or the system specs for the new computer aren't powerful enough even compared to the old laptop. There's just not enough information here to properly help.

    There are a lot of online games that are not compatible with Windows 8 yet.

    She's gonna have to wait for the new version of the game like the rest of us.
