I'm just a wanna-be computer geek (read tinkerer), so I have been trying everything to figure this out.
I have a liteon dvd/cd/rw. Recently, I've been trying to update drivers, etc. For some reason now, I am still able to play music cds; but when I try to play my Sims2 cd, it starts, gets to the blue load screen, then I have to press the windows key to get back to the desktop. There, I see a wierd error message consisting of a box with "Sims2", a red circle with a white "X" and an "ok" button.
Any ideas on a resolution would help,
