I've been having issues with the Sims 2 crashing when I use it. It's usually when I'm trying to load something (eg. moving a family into a house) that it crashes. I'm pretty computer illiterate, so bear with me as I attempt to give you my system specifications... (I'm just copying them down from the DirectX Diagnostic Tool screen)
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium
System Model: HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook PC
Processor: Intel Cor 2 Duo CPU T5750 @ 2.00 GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.0 GHz
Memory: 3062 MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 10
(Display Tab, Under Device)
Name: Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family
Chip Type: Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family
DAC Type: Internal
Current Display Mode: 1280 x 800
Monitor: Generic PnP Monitor
I'm not really sure if that's the info you need. Any help would be greatly appreciated, though. (Please keep it simple, I'm really not very good with computers.) Thanks so much!
Edit: It ran fine for months before this. I didn't use it for a while, and when I tried it again today, it didn't work. I've tried running it as an administrator, but get the same problems.
