Sims 2 EP's not running

I have been able to install the sims 2 base program it took me about three days to figure out the original problem now I have the same problem with the Expansion packs and have tried everything that I did with the base to get it to run. Here's the problem:

When I insert the disc It will read and acknowledge the existence of the disc in the drive but the autorun will not load to install the games. So I will go into the disc contents and try to run the autorun from there and same thing the computer will start to read the disc then stop... no error messages or any thing to saythst it's stopped doing anything just that the "thinking" cursor will dissapeat and be replaced by the standard pointer. I have tried to run as admin also same result, cleaned the registery and such but nothing...

I an running on vista.

any ideas?

Sims 3 keeps crashing


It could be due to several different things! And without further details, e.g. Type of computer, game minimum requirements, what other processes or apps are loaded, etc. It is almost impossible to determine the root cause of the issue, although I suggest you to try:
1. close all apps and run game
2. Reset SMC and PRAM (see link)
3. Try in another user account
4. check game video settings and disable any special effects.
(You might need to upgrade the system memory)
All the best,
Alex

How to unlock my apple ibook g4 laptop


You're going to need a bootable disk that came with the machine (or a version of the Mac OS that you know will run on it). You should do a complete custom install, including erasing the original disk.

I think you're going to need Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5) or earlier to get started. You can look for a disk on the internet, or see if you can get one from Apple (try the support forums at apple.com). A G4 is a PowerPC-based machine and isn't supported by the recent OS X versions, which require an Intel-based processor.

Identifying lock-ups and freezes This document will help you to locate and troubleshoot programs that cause your notebook to hang, freeze, or lock-up. Print this document or save it to your hard disk drive to have the reference available after disconnecting from the internet. Symptoms of notebook lock-ups, freezes, and hangs include:
  • Nothing moves or blinks on the computer display.
  • The computer will not respond to the mouse or keyboard.
  • An error message appears and will not go away.
Freezes, crashes, and lock-ups may be caused by programs locking up resources, software conflicts, or older programs being incompatible with newer operating systems. Follow the steps in this document, in order, until the problem is resolved. Close locked-up programs and locate problem software If your notebook locks up or stops responding while using a program, close the stalled program to continue using other programs. Also, while closing the program, take note of which other programs are running at the same time.
  1. Close the program that is "Not responding" and determine if the lock-ups continue.
  2. If the lock-ups no longer occur after the program is closed, go to Uninstall and re-install the problem software .
  3. If the lockups continue, press ctrl + alt + delete to go back to the Task Manager.
  4. Write down all of the programs that are running when the lock-up occurs. The conflict could have originated by another software application that is running at the same time.
  5. Close other programs that are running one at a time (except for Explorer and Systray) and determine if the lockups continue. Once you find the problematic software application, go to Uninstall and re-install the problem software .
Uninstall and re-install the problem software To resolve the problem that is causing the notebook to lock-up, uninstall the suspected software and then re-install it. If your software came with an uninstaller program, use it first; otherwise, follow the steps below to uninstall and re-install the program.
  1. Click Start > Control Panel .
  2. When the Control Panel window opens, select Uninstall a program.
  3. Select the program that is causing the lockups and right-click it. Then select Uninstall . NOTE: Remove all versions of the same program. Sometimes upgrades will not remove old versions of the software before installing the new version. This leaves multiple versions of the same software on your computer.
  4. After removing the problem programs, close the Control Panel.
  5. Restart the computer.
  6. Re-install the program following the vendor's instructions

The sims game download instructions


Use Disk Utility to create a "CD/DVD master" disk image file.
Depending on the copy protection resident on the actual disk, this may or may not succeed. Some commercial disks have deliberate bad sectors which prevent you from making disk images of them.
If successful, then double clicking the .cdr image file will mount the disk to the desktop as if there was a CD resident.
