Hi my problem with the Sims 2 DVD edition is that everytime I go to put the disk in, nothing happens. The auto run will not pop-up for me to do anything. I have tried numerous things to try to fix this and nothing is working. I have had the sims on this computer before, and now I just can't get it back on here. Someone plz help me!

If you're simply looking to get to the disc to install the game go to My Computer and double click on the drive the disc is in, it should start it then, if not, right click the drive and Explore. In there you will find the program that autoruns the disc. It'll be called autorun or just sims2, something like that.

As far as re-enabling autorun.... I did a quick search and came across this:

How To Enable/Disable Autorun (Windows XP)
Open Windows Explorer by pressing the Windows + "e" key.
Right-click the desired CD-ROM and select Properties from the menu.
Select the AutoPlay tab.
Select each item from the pulldown list and for the Action to perform, select "Take no action" to disable autorun, or pick the apporpriate action to take if enabling autorun.
Select OK.
