  1. Trying to run Sims 1 on my Windows 10 laptop


    Hi, all. I am trying to run the base game for The Sims on my laptop. I have tried to download patches but they seem to be only for the deluxe editions. i have also tried running in compatibility mode for all Windows OS.


    I once had issues running Sims 2 on my laptop, but that was resolved after running a patch and running in compatibility mode.


    Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance!!

    :)

    Please answer the query, mentioned below:

    2. Select Compatibility Tab.

    3. Place a check mark next to Run this program in

    Compatibility Mode and select the operating system accordingly from the drop down list.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  4. Trying to run Sims 1 on my Windows 10 laptop

    Laptop running Windows 10 keeps freezing

    Hi,

    Since you already tried several troubleshooting steps, such us running a hardware diagnostic test on all hardware components, checked the system files, updated all drivers, and as well the BIOS, then this is perhaps an issue with the laptop itself. Now,
    to isolate what is causing performance issues on your laptop, we suggest that you perform a factory reset, then check if it's the same. To perform the suggest step, please refer to this article:

    Recovery options in Windows 10.


    If the issue persists after performing the suggested step, contact the laptop manufacturer to have it replaced.

    Let us know the outcome.
