You should first check your drive capacity, your RAM and the game minimum memory requirement. reformatting your computer should always be your last option. you need to have the installation disk for your fresh start.

With blank DVD/CD computer crashes


My computer used to do this until I installed more RAM. Seems those video writing programs want to hog all the system RAM which causes the crash. I have at least 1 GB RAM minimum in all my computers. Hope this helps.

Computer beeps and screen is blank


The computer beeps when some components are missing. Check all the connections.

Please try to press F8 at the boot, and choose Safe mode. You will see then if it is the hard drive the problem.

If you have more information after the T180 for the model number, can you indicate it please. You might have to update the BIOS.

Please insert a disk into drive


You can only copy files to a blank disk by using programs like NERO or by using a re-writeable disk like DVD-RW which you can format and use it like a hard drive. You need also burner not an ordinary DVD or CD player.

Copying sims2 game to an external hard drive


I suggest try playing the game on a different computer. This usually happens when you play the game on a computer that does not meet the games system requirement. Most probably the specifications of this computer is lower than the computer you originally play the game with.

Blank Screen - No Display though computer power light remains switched on.


You people are not explaining in detail what is actually wrong?.  If you do this we can try to help you.

 

1 Does the power lights light up.

2 Does the hard-drive light light up

3. Does anything go on the computer.

4 What does and what does not (lightup)

 

Just because you have a blank screen does not necessarily mean the screen is "had it" and by plugging an external monitor to see if there is problem does not exist.

For all we know your motherboard may have ceased to exist or your hard drive crashed or your memory chip.  Please help me to help you?
