Re: hi, bioshock keeps shutting down to the desktop ,im...
You may be using too much memory, so it doesnt have enough memory to do its functions. Un-install anything you dont use.
If this doesnt work, get the graphics card which is RECOMMENDED, NOT MINIMUM, simply because some games dont work on minimum.
If this still doesnt work, then get it checked out at a nearby Electronic Repair Store, and see what they make of it.

sounds like you went from xp to vista...try installing a second partition with xp or win 7....vista has a known problem of doubling video memory in the system memory....so if your running vista on a laptop, you are straining the system from the get go
vista seems fast, for a little while
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!

Hi there, is the disc damaged at all? if it is, but not very deep scratches, try polishing the disc/disc's, with a very soft cloth. make sure you clean the disc from centre outworse not side to side like most people do, if there is any stains/marks on the disc, try watching them off my damp soft cloth and cleaning it gently, and then dry with enough soft cloth inwards out again.
Also go to your program files making sure there isnt any semi installed versions of Sims, if there is delete the folder for the Sims 2 Double Delux and try again :)
Also alot of games dont install with windows vista, why i am still using windows Xp, untill windows 7 comes out to the public.
That's wierd... O.K. yeah, its probably the vista thing... Or it might be the download. When you downloaded the game you might of gotten a faulty copy i.e. the game file has a virus. If it is the "vista" thing, than download the game onto another computer that can play it. Like how you said the game would work fine on your old XP PC, than it sounds like that's the computer you have to use. My advice, keep looking for different downloads to get the game, and keep searching for patches to try and fix the problem, if all else fails buy the game or call tech support. Hope this helps
Try turning your graphics settings down to lowest and see if you still have the problem. If the problem does persist, I would recommend adding some more RAM to the system, another 2GB would be ideal. It could also be the video card overheating, so make sure your case is dust-free and the fans are working properly.
