"i have enough ram and memory and stuff"

Ram & memory are the same thing.

When the game crashes, is there anything in the error message that may indicate what the problem is? Have you made any changes to your system lately...installed any new hardware or programs, updated any drivers, etc?

Still not an awful lot of RAM for gaming. Judging by the amount, you're probably using onboard video rather than an actual video card. 512MB RAM installed - 32MB used by onboard video = 480MB left for the system.

Anyhow, since you said SIMS 2 had been working OK, I would suspect the new RAM is defective. You (or your PC dude) can test it with a program called memtest86. If any errors are detected, the RAM is bad & will have to be replaced.

PS don't associate your gender with your knowledge and skill set.

For whatever reason, the tech field(s) do seem to draw more males than females, but not necessarily because girls are somehow less capable of learning this stuff.
