Would need to know more about the pc itself, you can get these details by right clicking Computer and going to Properties. Then clicking on Windows Experience Index blah. Now click on view and print on the right.
Copy the contents of that window and paste in quote like so:

Was it working on the same pc when it had xp on? How about posting the exact make and model so that someone can point you in the right direction mate.

That looks ok to me. I've got a copy of X-Plane if anyone wants to make me an offer..... X -Plane is fine if you realise that no airports are included - just runways. That some smaller airport don't exist to download (none in the Channel Isles for instance). X-Plane is just to clever for it's own good and although it works on midrange PC's it is really aimed at the mega geeks, with all singing all dancing PC's and the fastest cpu and GPU etc.
