Right, this is simple, just like puting blocks in a baby toy. Just messing, if you don't know what you're doing it is hard.
Consult your dvd writer's manual for instructions on how to install the new device, it should have come with a Cd as well.
The usb 2 card, i'm assuming, is some type of bus card. AGP, PCI, PCI - E. So, here's the baby toy part. Open the computer case, after it's turned off and be sure to wear a grounding bracelet or constantly touch the metal side of the case, DO NOT touch the motherboard with a magnitized screwdriver, or your fingers unless they've been discharged on the side of the case (static is deadly to computers) (note this process may void your warrenty, as will the DVD writer)
But it sounds like it's an older computer, so i'm guessing pci slot. Locate an empty PCI slot, or whatever they all look the same, You can google the PCI slot to see what it looks like. After you locate it unscrew the screw on side that opens up to the back of the computer, unscrew it and remove the plate. I'm sure all this is in the usb card's manual as well. Then just stick the card in there ther right way, and screw it in place, wel-ah! Then you will need to get your driver cd or download the drivers from the manufactorer's website.

Have a good day,
Some dude

Hello,

Thanks for using fixya.

My name is Carlo.

Your computer might not pass the system requirements that's why it has an error. Or, you can try installing it one more time and check if it will work. Computers do mess up sometimes.

Here's the system requirement of SIMS 3:

Desktop PC (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Desktop PC (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Laptop (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

Laptop (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 2 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

IF your computer does not pass the system requirement, then you cannot play sims3 in your computer.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya

If your laptop meets the following requirements then there shouldn't be a problem:

PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended

128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)

Too slow


the only way to improve graphics is to upgrade your graphics card and ensure that you have enough system memory and proccesor power to run the game as it should do. If you have a 32MB or 64MB card then maybe you should go for atleast 128MB
