Hi vikram_007

Wrong forums but I'll try to help anyway. Cry2 on my system does not need to run in compatibility to work on Win8. I would start by updating all your drivers, the GPU first. If your games work on 7 but not 8 then that will be the most likely cause.

Make sure you update the GPU and DirectX. Those matter the most.

You may also want to check with Dell tech support about whether or not your BIOS needs updating. Just make sure you contact them first instead of trying to do it yourself. If you do not do it right, or even if you do, it could fail and brick the system.
