I installed the sims 2 on my pc, and it was working fine for awhile. One day the command prompt would not come up. I have tried uninstalling the entire collection of The Sims 2. Then reinstalling. Nothing has worked. The rest of the computer works fine (HP Laptop may 2008). I am at a lose of what to do now. Please give me something to try other than buying a new pc.
There is another piece of software which uses the same key combination (Ctrl-Shift-C) and can stop the cheat console from working - try following the instructions here: http://sumomo.modthesims2.com/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Cheat_Box_Won%27t_Appear

Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD into the computer. Note: If you have a system recovery CD or restore CD (not a Microsoft CD) these steps will likely not work for your computer.
Reboot the computer with the CD and press any key when prompted to press any key to boot from the CD. Once in the Microsoft Setup menu press R to open the recovery console.
Select the operating system you wish to use; if you only have Windows XP on the computer you will only have one prompt.
Once prompted for the password enter the Admin password and press enter.
Once at the command prompt type bootcfg /rebuild to start the rebuild process.
The rebuild process will step you through a number of steps depending upon how many operating systems you have on the computer and how the computer is setup. Below is a listing of the common steps you are likely going to encounter.
* Prompt for the identified versions of Windows installed. When you receive this prompt press Y if the bootcfg command properly identified each of the Windows operating systems installed on the computer. It is important to realize this command will only detect Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows NT installations.
* Prompt to enter the load identifier. This is the name of the operating system for the boot.ini. For example, Microsoft Windows XP Home users would enter Microsoft Windows XP Home edition.
* Prompt to Enter OS load options. When this prompt is received type /fastdetect to automatically detect the available options.
Once you have completed all the available options in the rebuild and are back at the prompt type exit to reboot the computer.
try to access command prompt outside of windows using the operating system disc. (by booting to cd and go to repair your computer options then select command prompt) if the keyboard works fine on command prompt, there's no issue with the hardware. but if it still doesnt work, you will need to replace the keyboard.
Dont worry just boot your computer using Bootable disk or windows installation disk, enter into Recovery console by pressing"R"
type the Administrator password if any or simply press "Enter".
At the command prompt type-"fixboot"
once done restart your computer normally.

Try this: Insert
the Windows CD (the oryginal one) into the CDrom drive, and restart tyour PC. When the compter bootsagain select an option that are
required to start the computer from the CD if you are asked to do so. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. When
prompted type "1" or if you have a multiple-boot computer,
select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
