Help with Sims 2 please

Installed Sims 2 yesterday with expansion packs
  • Pets
  • Nightlife
  • Glamour Stuff
  • Teen Stuff
  • Kitchen & Bathroom
  • Celebration Stuff
  • H&M Fashion
  • Family Fun Stuff
Sometimes I play and there is no problem. Other times my sims faces go black, the area around my sims house will go the same pattern as floor tiles when I havent asked it to. Sometimes it will freeze when im playing and come up Sims 2 EP4 isnt working and I have to close the game and restart it.

Any advice?
Thank you x

I will check that out, thank you. I didnt think I would need it as when I installed it said my sims was up to date.

Hope theog's suggestion works for you - if not, let us know what version of Windows 7 you're using (32- or 64-bit) and we'll try to continue helping.

Cheers,
