The Sims 2 Double Deluxe Freezing issue!! Please Help!!

Hi, I recently brought The Sims 2 Double Deluxe for PC and I have encountered a problem. I have searched up everywhere for solutions and the solutions I have found did not work what so ever. I have a Laptop; Vista with 250GB HHD, 2GB DDR2, 2.0GHz and it has a Intel Core Duo Processor. My game continues to freeze in the middle of my playing. When I make my own sims it might freeze half way through creation or when I have finished with my family it will freeze in the loading screen to choose a house for them to live in. There have been times when i can make the people and have selected a house, but when I save and leave the house/neighborhood/quit the game, then return to the house, it will freeze as soon as entered. All you can see in it is a black screen with the information bar with there wants. The mouse is frozen on the choosing what the sim can do mouse. I have norton and I can completely removed it from my system, as I had read it makes sims freeze. I also read on one of the websites to go into task manager when the game just starts and to go to the sims process, then set affinity, then un-tick the CPU 1. I have uninstalled it and reinstalled it many times. I have put onto two other computer and it worked fine, so I know its not the disc. I have left the computer to cool and then re-tried it but that also failed. I can only play as the sims who are already there, but even with that it freezes after a while. My computer mets the needs of the game, I really don't know what is doing this. Please help my computer and I!!!! I am at my wits end, I am a big fan of sims and as soon as I got this game I was excited to play, but since this freezing I haven't been able to do so.Please help!
Sincerely Kate

SIMS 2 UNIVERSITY INSTALLED BUT NOT LOADING UP, NOTICED PEOPLE HAVING SIMILAR PROBLEMS. MY OTHER SIMS 2 GAMES ARE PC DVD ROM SIMS TWO UNIVERSITY I BOUGHT IS A PC CD ROM IS THAT THE PROBLEM WHY IT WONT...


I think university is the first or second expansion pack. I know there are issues if the expansions are not installed in order of their release. if you have say, seasons or freetime and then install university, it may not run correctly. You have to uninstall the packs or the game and re-install them in correct order. Yes, it's a big pain but I had to do it twice.
Install the SIMS2, or double deluxe whatever you have then follow this order with exception of say nightlife if you have have double deluxe because it comes with the original game.

The Sims 2" Expansion Pack Order
  • "The Sims 2 University"
  • "The Sims 2 Nightlife" included in double deluxe
  • "The Sims 2 Holiday Party Pack" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Open for Business"
  • "The Sims 2 Family Fun" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Glamour Life" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Pets"
  • "The Sims 2 Happy Holiday" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Seasons"
  • "The Sims 2 Celebration" (A Stuff Pack) also in double deluxe
  • "The Sims 2 H&M" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Bon Voyage"
  • "The Sims 2 Teen Style" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Free Time"

This may or may not be the solution. I had the same problem and it turns out my computer only has a CD-Rom drive and the Double Deluxe requires a DVD-Rom drive. If this isn't the case, then I don't know what it is. :[
