I had that problem (+no sound) - what I did was uninstall the sims, deactivate my antivirus, reinstall the sims. I checked the directx as part of the setup ('more information/technical help' on the menu), and changed one setting (I think it was for the graphics) to 'maximum' from 'medium'). It worked ok after that.

Hope that helps

when u start sims how much of the introduction and music do u listen to and watch before pressing enter and just getting the blue screen up with the writing scrolling across the bottom?

This prob hasnt happened to me but someone on another site said that if u click off the demo bit too early this will happen, let about 15 seconds of the demo and music play before pressing enter to get blue screen up, this should fix problem.

hope it helps
