    My Sims 2 game will not work. When I first used it it told me I needed a
    patch from the maxis website, so I downloaded it. When I start the game now
    it freezes at the beginning where it says Sims 2.

    My computer is a Gateway with Windows Home Vista Premium.
    It has a AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 5000+ 2.60 GHz
    Memory RAM 1919 MB
    32 bit operating system
    Nvidia Geforce 6150SE video card
    320 GB Sata ll Hard drive
