    I have the Sims Double Deluxe (old, i know.) It was working fine for a few weeks but now it's not.

    I put in the CD and start it, and it loads.. then suddenly stops, and returns me back to my windows desktop. I troubleshooted.

    Closed down background programs, my drivers are updated.. etc. its all good

    however it asks me to: adjust the Color palette option to 256 colors and the Desktop area to 640 by 480 pixels. If your driver lets you alter the viewport size separately, sometimes referred to as "virtual desktop", make sure it is also set to 640x480 or you may encounter problems.

    I can't do that for some reason. I think my monitor is different.

    But i've used the Sims successfully before, now all of a sudden it wont. Help!
