    I am running windows XP Professional and have specs way over the recommended to run the Sims. The game installs fine, but when I go to play it, nothing happens. there is a sims.exe process running in the task manager but nothing appears on the screen, and i cant end the process. ive tried the compatability wizard thingy but that doesnt seem to work either. does anyone know of a reason this is not working? is there some kind of patch or compatibility setting i need? thanks.

    Is your computer a Pentium or a celeron or Athlon? if it is Celeron or Athlon, then it may not work because sims works best on Pentium type processors.

    That should be way more than enough to run the game. Sorry but I don't know what to do.:confused:

    First the Dims sux
    Second if you like the game that much and can't live your own life then call EA, but don't expect EA to do a thing cause lately they just don't care about any of their games, I am not kidding. Oh wait that is this the Dims Online that EA makes? If you are not playing online then you probably won't call EA so all in all call, lol.
