Sounds like your motherboard has hard it try dissconnecting the everything exept CPU power supply keyboard and screen and see if you can get it to come up with the bios, if it still dosnt work unplug the fan on the CPU and turn it on then see if that works (dont leave for more than 1min without the heatsink fan spinning as it can cause the processor to overheat anything less than a min you ok. just long enough to see if theres any signs of life on the screen. hope this helps

Greetings. I wanna upgrade my processor from amd sempron 3200+ 1.8 ghz to athlon 2 x2 260 processor. But when I put the athlon 2 x2 260 proc, it didnt work.


Did you check to see if it would handle that type of upgrade? Maybe that's your problem, it's not compatible. Research and see if it can handle it, then we can find a solution if it can.

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

    Found no display my PC. ( Mother Board ASUS M2N68AM , Ram 1 GB 667 DDR2,CPU AMD Athlon 5000 )


    Do u mean there no display adapter on your motherboard? If that's the case some ASUS motherboards don't have on board video or graphic cards. You can buy an addon cards available in most computer shops, You stand a chance of getting a much better graphics card than those that come with the motherboards.
