The Sims 2 Double Deluxe Wont Run?!?!

Specs: Windows Vista
Ok, so, i just bought " The Sims 2 Double Deluxe " awhile back. Today I went to start up my game. I clicked the icon on my desktop. The screen popped up where you click play. I clicked play. The hourglass showed for a second, then disappeared. The game never popped up. It never loaded.

I took everything off my computer. I deleted all files, etc.

I did a manual install, as I usually have to, and it installed fine.

I clicked play, the same thing happened AGAIN.

Can anyone help? Please?

Post your sysytem specs. Are you sure it at least meets the minimum requirements for the game?

Yes i meet all of the requirements, except for..... on my video card, it is an ATI Radeon Xpress 1150. On the box it says, ATI Radeon 8500 or greater. Am I alright with the video card I have?

Also, I have played this game before, but I unistalled it for some odd reason, then I re-installed it just fine, but now I am having this problem.

Those aren't your system specs. I meant the type & speed of CPU, amount & type of RAM, make/model of video, etc. The Radeon Xpress 1150 is NOT a video card, it's an integrated graphics processor (IGP) which is built into the motherboard. The minimum requirements aren't all that high so I'm fairly sure your system can handle it

Did you try starting the game from the disc rather than from the desktop icon?

Sorry, I'm not that good with computers, but anyways... are these my system specs that your talking about?

CPU: Model 76 , Memory - 1089MB/per sec
RAM: 894MB
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c

Also, since I have a IGP, do I still need to get a video card?

Like I said, I have played this game before, unistalled it for some reason, re-installed it fine and now I have this problem.

And yes, I have tried to start it from the disk, autorun, the desktop icon, everything, but still nothing.
