PC Game Sims Stopped Working

I purchased the sims life stories from best buy to play on my laptop. it installed and played fine for about a week. Then stopped working all of a sudden. Id get an error message that read please insert correct disc. The correct disc is in the computer. i tried searching for an answer and couldnt find anything i decided to try and exchange the game for a new one. the new one worked fine for a couple days and now I am having the same problem. It wont open from the start menu. the desk top. my computer. when I search for it. Just Nothing. I scanned for virus's and updates and defragged my computer. went through and got rid of all the unnecassary stuff and all. It plays other CD's and DVD's fine but others it wont. Please help me I am SO frustrated! I am not very computer savy but Im not illiterate. So if you could break it down please that would be great!! I just dont want to have to spend awhole bunch of money. its a newer laptop and i just bought it... THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! ~**~Britney~**~

Hello, I bought the Sims 2 and some of the extensions (Sims 2 teen style, Sims 2 H&M) for my lap top. It worked fine and i was able to play for a few months and then all of the sudden i would play and my lap top would freeze up. And it kept freezing up in the first 5-10 minutes of playing. I have no idea why. Please help me step by step in what you think needs to be done. My lap top is very new and I would love to be able to play on The Sims again soon! Please and Thank you! -Lauren

update quick time, Java, and if you have windows vista or windows 7 and the game is for windows xp then right click on the game (if you can't access the game then right click on a shortcut and click find target) and click compatibility mode windows xp, also see if your graphics card is compatible with the game.
