please help, i'd really like to be able to play sims2 university.

can someone please help me? a few weeks ago, i bought a legit copy of sims2 university. the installation seemed to be ok, but when i try to load and play, all i get is a blue screen.

i have downloaded the latest directx drivers, and searched online for a patch, which is what i needed for the sims2 base game, but i still can't play.

please help, $30 is a lot on my budget, for a game i can't play.

Welcome, you need you to fill out your specs in the bottom left of your post to be able to help.

What error codes are you getting with the blue screen?

ok i have filled in what info i can with regards to my computer, i am not an expert, just an average user, so some info i don't know.

when i attempt to load the game, it appears to be loading, (noises from drive etc) it then comes up with a blank blue screen, no error messages. this is as far as it goes, and then freezes.
