You need to get the PlayStation BIOS before you can start to play playstation games on your computer.Download the relevant PlayStation BIOS from torrent or any other file sharing sites.Store them in a folder.

Although there are lots of emulators available over the internet i would recommend using ePSXe/pSX for PS1 games and PCSX for PS2 games because they are the best one i used always to play playstation games on computer.You can download the emulators from the below links :

ePSXe : http://www.epsxe.com/download.php
pSX : http://psxemulator.gazaxian.com

Then place the appropriate BIOS files in the BIOS folder of the Emulator’s directory .
