Question about EA - Electronic Arts The Sims Deluxe Edition for Windows

1 Answer

I have been trying to install my Sims 2 3d game. Everytime I have put the cd in, it does not respond. I tried to manually install it. THis didn't work either. I put my ear next to the cd rom and i heard spin attempts of the cd and beeping noises. I took my game to a friend's house and tried to see if it would respond. It worked on hers perfectly. Is there some update that I need in order to get my game to install? I am almost sure I meet the minimum requirements and have the space needed. Help!

Check Device Manager from the Control Panel (exact commands depend on the Windows version). You may have a driver issue (look for a yellow triangle with an exclamation point or a red triangle with an x). If you see either one, try updating the driver. Otherwise, it may be a problem with the lens or other part of the hardware. (If you can get a cleaning disc to read, try that.)

If the above do not help: to install the game, either attach an external optical drive (USB) or replace the drive with a new one. (If you don't need a Blu-ray drive, it will be cheaper to replace than to repair the drive.)

I hope this helps.

Hi. Is Sims 2 installed in your pc? Before you can install any expansion pack you have to install first the sims 2. Try installing first your sims 2 software then install all the expansion pack that you have. Hope this helps.

Ive lost my serial number to the sims


Google. =]
Just type in Sims Serial number (or serial code, cd key, SN).

For example:
  • Sims Vacation serial number
  • Sims vacation cd key
  • Sims vacation SN
Just have a look around and you should be able to find a few without a problem. If that doesn't work, I suggest putting "list" within the sentence. That sometimes helps you get different serial codes rather than generators for codes.

For example:
  • Sims Vacation serial number list
  • Sims Vacation cd key list
Hope I was of some help. By the way, which Sims are you trying to get the serial code for? Sims Vacation cd key, will obviously not work if it's Sims 2, and vise versa. So just make sure you search for the specific Sims game you are trying to install.

Installing the sims 2 double deluxe


Does your laptop have a DVD drive? It is likely that the Sims Double Deluxe disk you have is a DVD ROM and not a CD ROM.
If this is not the case, try clicking My Computer and selecting the CD drive to see if the computer recognises the disk at all. Run setup.exe if it does.

Not responding?


if the game is brand new its not the game. the most likely reason this happens is because your computers graphics card is not sufficient, what is your graphics cards memory? the brand? model? if you do not know this, how old is your computer? when did you get it and when was the last time you updated your computer with new hardware?

HELP Installshield is giving me problems


Did you uninstall SIMS first? I would ask if you have added any new devices (like a new video card) to your machine. The idea is that a device driver is being installed and there may be a conflict or file that is locked while installing. Do you actually get an error? Please indicate it here.

1) Uninstall SIMS
2) Shutdown the computer, wait for 15 seconds
3) Restart the machine, if any new changes occur, let them happen, then start at 2 again until nothing updates.
4) Reinstall SIMS

If these don't work, make sure your machine still meets the minimum requirements of the game.

Also, see that the disk is clean. Possibly make a backup copy of the game on DVD/CD and try from that.

One more thing, make sure you scan your system for Virus.
