i just came home from being outside and my sisters were just finished watching free full shows on nick.com... i popped in the sims 2 DVD and my first blue screen of death popped up.... :thumbsup:

here is the exact message:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing the video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as cahing or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical information:

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0x0000005, 0x804E057d, 0xf3D8A8C8, 0x00000000)

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete.
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for futher assistance.

anybody can help? i really appreciate it as i dont wanna see this screen again.

How much Ram do you have and does your video card have ram of its own or is it drawing from the system ram?

What is running in the background loaded by your start memory that's unnecessary?
(Make a second account for yourself for gaming with no unnecessary programs running or loaded at startup. Your AV program and firewall are necessary!))

Game crashes can happen for a variety of reasons. I suspect your sisters' viewing caused a memory problem, either with RAM or with your video memory.
If restarting the computer (which will clear both memory locations) allows the game to run normally, and you don't have this problem again, I would not worry too much about it.
Regards,
John

Yeah I would agree with the above. I know firsthand that The Sims 2 will eat your memory very quickly. What are the computer specs?
