Right click the game icon and select properties > Compatibility and you should see a dialog box similar to the one I made a snip of below.
When you tried compatibility settings did you try, A: Change settings for all users B: Run this program in compatibility mode for (XP, Vista, Windows 7) C: Run as Administrator and you may have to try some other settings too like run in 640 x 480 resolution.
If the games were released prior to 2007 they would require XP service pack 2 compatibility but still may not work after trying all available settings.
