I just insalled The Sims 2, and tryed starting it up for the first time. It came up with this error message:

"The Sims 2 has encountered an error and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Yada yada yada. I'm sure you guys are familiar with this message. I know I am.

So far I have tryed restarting my computer. Usually when this error comes up, I don't really know what to do. I will try re-installing it tonight.

I realize that it could be that graphics card driver, but I highly doubt it because I have been playing Oblivion and Guild Wars perfectly.

I just got a new computer a few weeks ago. The wierd thing is that it worked on my old Athlon XP 1600+, Geforce 2 GTS, 256MB system. It lagged, but it worked.

My current system specs are in my signature :whistling:

Thanks in advance for any help.. I really love the sims :blink:

Try the information at this link to the EA customer support site. Also, have you redownloaded the appropriate patches?

(By the way, just so there's no confusion, I don't work here and don't know nothin' about the instructions EA gives. I'm just a fellow Sims2 player who knows how it is to need a Sims fix.)

(Also by the way, I killed the Pleasant family last night, all four of them. I hated them so...much. If I lived in that town I wouldn't be going into the pool anytime soon, I can tell you that!)

I went to that link. The things they mainly say are close all background programs, and update video card drivers. No luck still.

Also, I re-installed it and it didn't work.

When I went to their website and checked the minimum specifications ( http://thesims2.ea.c....php?help_id=21 ). Your ATI Radeon X1300 isn't on the list of supported graphics cards. Now this may be the problem (it's only a guess) but that seems to be what the problem is at the moment (unless someone can think of something else).
