Answers :

All you really should do, is take your laptop to Target or Best Buy and ask them to get it working. But you should probably go to the store that you bought it from, if they can't fix it, demand your money back.
Could be your laptop doesn't have the necessary horsepower to run SIMS 3 (mine doesn't)
