Windows 7... ...duh.
 
 

Can you add your Soundcard in that list? I'm no expert - but in relation to the sound going really weird, it might be that. So if you add that in, someone else might know.

For what it's worth though - The Sims 3 works flawlessly in Windows 7, play that till the Sims 2 is fixed maybe? :)

Like mine! The seven drivers are located here:
Realtek
Hope they work...
Once you've agreed to the terms of service click the Win7 driver download (one of the three sites):

...Ummm not really sure what you're trying to point at here? I was giving you a friendly suggestion to pass the time till you got you Sims 2 fixed. But I reckon you mean you can't buy The Sims 3 in NZ?

And a screenrecorder for games is Fraps.
