Sims 2 Double Deluxe will not install again.

Sims 2 Double Deluxe will not install again.

I installed my new Sims2 double deluxe game, and had been playing it for days. I was playing it one day and I just ejected the game disk without turning off the game. I turned the game off after the game disk was out of the drive. I tried to put the disk back in and tried to pull the game up. The little rectangle came up that says "play." I clicked on it but an error box came up, and it kept doing that everytime. So I uninstalled the game, and tried to reinstall it. The rectangle that says "play" wouldnt come up. So I clicked start, and I went to my computer, and looked at the drives to see if the sims2 double deluxe icon was showing...and it was. So I double clicked that, but another error came really frustrated. I have a DVD drive, obviously because I was already playing the game before..and it's not the drive because after it wouldnt work I played another game and it worked. I cleaned the disk and everything, and it still doesnt work, what do I do?

Try to right click on the game and click run or play and see if that works. If now when you uninstall it look in the control panel. If the sims icon is there delete it and ever other sim icon you can find in your computer (DO NOT DELETE REQUIRED THINGS YOU ARE NOT SURE TO DELETE OR YOU MAY MESS UP YOUR ENTIRE COMPUTER.) Then reinstall it.

To remove the game, go to ControlPanel - Add/Remove Programmes, and uninstall from there.

Update all the graphics/sound/etc cards to at LEAST the minimum necessary for playing the game. Sometimes, the Deluxe disc didn't load for me, I had to restart the computer, and try it several times.

Persist at it, but don't lose your temper.
It should work eventually.
