have a e-machines 420 computer with 3d agp graphics,just over 1 year old.Installed the sims deluxe played great,over the last two months have installed two expansion packs worked fine then one day went to play it and when it got so far along on the titles screen the music stops and a blank screen appears then it goes back to my homepage.Anybody know why?

Try removing the game via ad/remove programs.


Run a reg cleaner.

Run system file checker:



sfc /scannow


Install game and expansion packs.
