Sims 2 crashes with microsoft error Thanks for all who read this, I just bought a new computer today, so i have all the specs to play all of the games. After installing expansion packs 1 and 2 I encountered a microsoft error after trying to start the game. I went to ea's web page and did what they suggested (update drivers, reinstall and remove registry) and still the same problem. I uninstalled everything again and reinstalled with just the Sims 2, again when i go to play it i see the white screen, and the sims 2 logo, and then a microsoft error. I can post the error if necessary. Any help is greatly appreciated, Thank you!
