Hi there. It sounds like the system is overheating. Open the side panel and remove all the dust that you can see, a clean dry soft paintbrush should do the job, make sure you clean the CPU fan and heatsink (the metal block behind the CPU fan). Once that's done the computer should stay on all the time but remember to clean the insides of the case periodically to prevent this problem form arising again.

Then Click where it says : "Find out if you can run that game on your PC"
Look in the drop down list and select The Sims 2 Double Deluxe PC game. Then Click on the "Can You Run it" Button.
