Exclamation Sim city 4 deluxe wont start - December 26th 2010, 05:37 AM

Alright so after searching the internet for(literally)hours and coming up with no solution,I thought I would post my problem here.

A couple of days ago I went to best buy and bought Sim city 4 deluxe edition
I installed it and everything went smoothly. The problem is, whenever I try to start it, nothing happens. The little icon shows its loading but then it just stops and nothing happens, no crash, no error message,nothing.I tried reinstalling multiple times,tried installing in a different place,still nothing happens.

I tried installing on the living room laptop, and it works. So it has to be something with my computer, I know my computer exceeds the requirements to run the game so its not that.

My system is Windows 7 64bit home premium

I would use this to get a reason: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/

I myself have Sim City 4, but I've never tried it but I can guarantee it'll work on mine because I just have that magical touch. I assume your laptop that you tested it on is a different operating system; or at least a different bit rate. I would attempt to run the game in Admin mode with comparability with Windows XP SP3, that's like one of the basic troubleshooting methods I attempt when faced with a problem. If the probably still persists and the website I provided is no help I'll try my system and see if I come up with a problem and if I can fix it myself.

I am using a desktop computer not a laptop. I tried everything you listed and still no luck with it.

Maybe your drivers are out dated on your system, Windows 7 x64 Pro can run it perfectly fine. Check Windows Update for any updates, etc.

I checked and no drivers are out of date, and I installed all updates. But still not working

You remember that website I provided, did you actually check it? Because surely that should have given you an insight.

Yes, I checked it and it said the game should run fast.
