1  Software Support / Game Problems / Sims 2: Trying to open game in .UIF format, but not working?? on: July 07, 2008, 02:36:11 AM
Hi everyone,

I'd like to play my Sims game without having to insert the CD all the time so I've tried making virtual copies of it on my computer. I've mounted (using Magic Iso) the Sims 2 CDs to my computer, but I can't seem to open the game still....when I click on the "The Sims 2" icon on my desktop, a window comes up and says "this program has known compatibility issues" (I have Windows Vista), but I click "run program" anyway and the Sims 2 picture comes up...but then a box overrides it and says "cannot locate the CD-ROM. Please insert the correct CD-ROM (I believe it's looking for CD1), select OK and restart application".

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?? I've never worked with Magic Iso before so I might be missing something there...?  Huh?

**Note: I just have Sims 2, no expansion packs or anything like that

Any help would be much appreciated!! Thanks!!  Smiley
2  Software Support / Operating Systems : Microsoft / [Moved from Security Forum] Computer won't start! =( on: March 16, 2008, 01:59:12 AM
Hi everyone,

So my computer won't start and I believe it's due to a virus...technically I suppose it DOES start -- that is, when I press the power button, it does light up -- but nothing shows up on the monitor that is working fine, and it doesn't load like it usually does. The sound of the computer is even different; it sounds only "partially on" if that makes any sense... Huh? I HAVE had some luck in that when I pressed the power button yesterday, it loaded after the black screen with white writing came up (the one that says the computer shut down unexpectedly and I have options such as "resume windows normally", "resume with last good configuration", etc.

Has anyone had the same problem as me and has successfully fixed it? I'd just like to be able to get it working so that I can back up my files (I haven't done it yet...I know, my bad on that one  Embarrassed) and just completely reformat it.

Thank you in advance!! I'd really appreciate the help as I'm not the best with computers...=\

-- edit: also, my CD-rom drive doesn't open up at I can't even put my WinXP CD inside
