So here I am -- New spiffy Computer. [HP Pavilion A1473W]

Its got a P4 2.80GHz Processor. With 1GB RAM.

It has an ATI Radeon Express 200 Series w/256MB RAM -- Graphics card.

According to the product specs. on The Sims 2 Glamour Life Stuff Pack. I have more than double what is needed to run the game. All signs are go.

I sit down and install all my expansions in order. Make sure everything is up-to-date. I have no hacks or extra stuff installed. And the stupid thing Hangs.

I loaded it up 3 times with this result. Then once it loaded up fine. But I was fed up with it at the point and shut it off. Took a break for a couple hours. Came back and it stopped responding again.

I went to Maxis and made sure I had all the right patches installed.

Any advice?

I am thinking about upgrading my RAM to its full 2GB and getting a better graphics card.
Do you this that would make any difference? And what would you suggest?

I just wanted to let everyone know, I have resolved this issue.

After some much needed sleep and a fresh mind. I surfed on over to Mod The Sims 2 and ran across this : Mod The Sims 2 -- Custom Content Not Loading. After completeing the steps outlined in there for my expansion [Glamour Life Stuff] {Sims Stuff Packs}. Viola! Loads no problem... Custom content intact! :flowers:
