    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Here are the games system requirements.

    Minimum System Requirements for The Sims 2

    If you have a T&L capable video card with at least 32 MB of video RAM then you need at least:

    * 800 MHz processor or better
    * 256 MB RAM if Windows XP, Windows ME, Windows 98 or Windows 2000
    * At least 3.5 GB of hard drive space

    If you have a non-T&L capable video card (an Intel Extreme Graphics or a Radeon 7000/VE Series) then you need at least:

    * 2.0 GHz processor or better
    * 256 MB RAM if Windows XP, Windows ME, Windows 98, or Windows 2000
    * At least 3.5 GB of hard drive space

    Get the most current driver for your video card. The manufacturers usually have the video drivers on their sites for you to download. Visit the nVidia site, the ATI site or the support site for your computer's manufacturer for the latest drivers for those video cards.

    Supported video cards (and the more video memory the better):

    * ATI RadeonTM series (7000 or better)
    o Radeon 7000/VE series (non-T&L; requires 2.0 GHz processor)
    o 7200, 7500
    o 8500, All-In-Wonder 8500
    o 9000, 9200, 9500, 9600, 9700, 9800
    o X300, X600, X800

    * Nvidia® QuadroTM series
    o Quadro, Quadro2, Quadro4

    * Nvidia® Geforce series (GeForce2 and better)
    o GeForce2
    o GeForce3, 3 Ti
    o GeForce4, 4Ti, MX 420, 440
    o GeForce FX 5200, 5600, 5700, 5800, 5900, 5950
    o GeForce 6600, 6800

    * Intel® Extreme Graphics (non-T&L; requires 2.0 GHz processor)
    o 82845, 82865, 82915

    You may need a graphicscard upgrade in order to play the game.

    I have posted a lot of messages so far on this site and so far no advice has worked.
    My sims 2 also won't fully install. The difference is, is that whenever it gets to a certain percentage e.g. 75% it says a problem occured when trying to install ........ retry or cancel! So clicking retry obviously does not work! It is very very frustrating. I have given up all together. In need of some advice.


    Oh And Before you ask:.
    - My computer...well laptop is not old.. only a year!
    - It has been installed on it before.
    - I've tried to install it on another computer..
    - Wiping the disk doesn't work and its not badly scratched
    - I have anti-virus protection on my computer/laptop
    - And I do have itunes (is this the problem?)

    Open the disk and copy the installation files to the PC and try installing that way.

    How exactly do you do this? I am no expert so excuse me if I sound extremely thick.
