View Full Version : Sims 2 won't launch.

I'm seriously at my wits end with this one, if you can fix it then I'll probably cry with joy!

So, here's the story.
A couple of days ago, I got the Sims 2 Double Deluxe (DVD) package.

I installed it.
-I launched it, it stayed on the desktop - the little Sims logo near my start menu, the PC hung up, beeped, froze, then rebooted itself.
- I relaunched the game, and it worked. So, thinking it was a one off disaster, I played for a few hours, turned the PC off, and went to bed.

Then yesterday, I put it on to play again - but it hung on the desktop, beeped, froze and restarted again.
I retried it about 5 times, and it did the same thing 5 times.

So I uninstalled the game, and reinstalled it.
On launch, it beeped, froze and rebooted.

So I tried again, and it started fine! So, a bit annoyed and discontent, I played it again. Turned it off, went to bed.

Today, same story. Over and over again, beep freeze reboot.
I've uninstalled+reinstalled again, but it still won't launch this time.

I thought it was an issue with my DVD drive, because it doesn't sound like it's running the dvd, but other games still work.
To test that, I installed the game on my brother's pc - and it works fine. No issues.

So, I whipped out the dvd drive from his pc, and put it into mine.
Same problems. It won't run.

I updated my Nvidia drivers, but no joy.
Following the advice from Esconder in this post (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=3145698&postcount=5), I installed DirectXupdate, and updated my audio drivers (or at least I think I updated my audio drivers)

Still no joy. I don't know what's wrong with it. It should work (and it has, twice!) but it's just starting to severly try my patience now.

... Help please! :o

Hmm this is suspicious. One of the other guys will be able to help you better than me, but I can tell you that Sims 2 absolutely freaks out if you have any kind of CD copying, drive emulating, or Disc Image ripping software even installed on your computer. Just something you might want to look into.

^ Fair notice.
1. Chris, run ARDiag.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/ardiag.exe) and post the report, to be sure you have no emulating software or StarForce Protection traces.

2. Try reinstalling your video drivers (http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_178.24_whql.html) - it seems previous installation contains some error.

3. Ensure you have DEP (http://www.tombraiderwiki.com/index.php/DEP) disabled.

4. Stop AVG "on-the-fly" protection or shut down AVG completely before running Sims2.

#2 - Done.

#3 - Done for the Sims.

#4 - I can disable everything from AVG apart from avgrsx.exe. I searched for how to disable that (by disabling the 'resident shield') but it still remained in the task list.

So, I tried the Sims again - and it's a bit different this time. Instead of restarting, I got these errors:

The DX9.0C part doesn't make sense to me - Both Oblivion and TR:A need DX9.0C to run, and they work fine on my pc.

:confused:

Download and run Autoruns (http://technet.microsoft.com/ru-ru/sysinternals/bb963902(en-us).aspx) and disable (untick) those:

Do you have latest DirectX (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2DA43D38-DB71-4C1B-BC6A-9B6652CD92A3&displaylang=en) update?

If upgrading the video drivers is not working, try downgrading them to earlier version (spring 2008 some).

Thanks for the continued help!
Unfortunately it's gone back to just rebooting after hanging up.

How do I go about downgrading my video drivers? You'll have to talk me through that one! :o

1. Download some older driver, e.g THIS (http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_169.21_whql.html) one. Generally use THIS (http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us) page to browse through all older compatible versions :)

2. Go to Control panel > System > Hardware tab > Device manager and delete your current drivers.

3. Reboot, tell Windows to "shut up" when it asks for a driver :D , browse to downloaded driver and run the package.

I'll try to look for alternative solutions for you, on Sims site also. Advise you to do the same :)
