Hi, when posting here it helps to put in game title or something rather than just "help". Also help if you include your operating system in your thread.

As to your problem the first thing I would check is that make sure your firewall isn't blocking it.

Other than that I would ask on the EA forums.

Hi there,thanks for answering.My system is windows xp and I have tried the thing with the firewall no luck with that,and as for EA they were no help at all.So I suppose its down to getting an IT engineer in.Thanks for your help.

I very much doubt is spending cash on an IT engineer will help as this is a known fault and pretty common without any real solution. It seems it is a game bug which EA have not addressed as yet. Bit more here.

Steam.

Steam 2.
