Oh those Simms.......

When you start the game, does it give you any specific error. I know that Simms2 is epecially picky about the video card's capabilities. It also won't run very well if your machine is using the older Intel i810 chipset. You might download Everest Home Edition, and run it on your machine to see exactly what the specs really are...you can then attach an Everest log to your next post here and we can see about sorting this out.

I poop on the Sims! That game has created more angst for me than any other....poorly written, buggy, over-blown ka-ka.

Go to the Windows XP Game advisor and run it, select the SIMs2 and report back what it finds. Also, as wannabe noted, an everest report would be useful

Just to clarify, though, the Sims is unlike most games in that it will actually run (maybe not well--if you can get it to run) on a fairly modest video card

Sims is a CPU pig, rather than GPU pig.
