Identifying a 90s PC game

Trying to identify a PC game I played while I was young. I want to say it was a point and click adventure game with darkish themes. It was 2D, not isometric, and I seem to remember there being a level/levels in a silhouetted art style, and *maybe* claymation. (It's not neverhood.) [more inside]

Pow! Freowwww! Games to test out my new rig with?

New laptop PC slow as heck!

What would cause the laptop to be so slow right out of the box? I was given a "new" computer at work. It is a HP Business Notebook PC with the product model = Compaq 8510p. It is so slow opening and closing windows, launching programs and starting up and shutting down--then sometimes freezes up. It is 3 years old and the warranty has expired as I was told by the HP helpdesk. I have searched the web and asked a few IT friends what the heck it could be since it has never been used. My boss doesn't want to hear any complaints about it since it's new out of the box--he figures it should be working perfectly. Should I take it to a PC shop to get it optimized or diagnosed in some way? It's driving me crazy! What could be causing this?

PC Power supply help

Need some advice please. I tried to install a new Power supply in my 2 year Old Dell PC in anticipation of installing a new Hi Spec Graphics card. Did all the necessary connections (I think) except connecting up the Sata cable to the Optical Disc drive (It wouldn't reach, I'll come to that in a minute). Powered it up, nothing. I noticed a light came on, on the motherboard (so It's getting power right??) Took out the power supply, refitted the old one and it all works. Questions - 1.Does not attaching the Sata cable to the optical drive matter?? 2.Can I buy a Sata cable extension?? 3.Is the light (showing on the motherboard) indicative of the Power supply working?? 4,Is it possible that the new power supply is not functioning??? 5.Is there something really obvious I'm missing?? Any help advice would be gratefully accepted, thanks
