  1. Well I had the Sims and some expansions installed on my computer and they wee working fine until I got makin magic and it wouldn't install. After that the game itself wouldn't play. I tried to uninstall it the right way but it wouldn't let me some kind of error. So I got desparate and started deleting the sims files one by one....then I downloaded a demo version of an uninstall program and got rid of the sims, thing is some of the files are still left.....and now when I put the game in it doesn't start nor doesthe auto play window come up to promt me to install....Can I fix this?

    BTW I tried going into my computer and manuel making it start and I tried using run....nothing happened.....

    Run the sim eraser program (it's on thesims.com), reboot and start again. there's an "order" to install the games in, too. check the threads there - there's a whole forum about install problems.

    maybe your computer cant play it because it dont have the specs?
    Or something wrong with the disk?
