Sound issues preventing Sims 2 from loading

March 4, 2012 8:45:20 AM

I built a new system recently and installed all the Sims 2 games and played it fine for a day, then the following day installed Sims 3 on the same drive, and suddenly Sims 2 Mansion and Garden Stuff would freeze after loading straight to the title screen (doesn't load the intro video or EA logo). I pressed Windows+D to get to the desktop and found there was an application error and the game would now terminate. I uninstalled all the Sims 2 games and installed basic Sims 2 to find the game would now not load at all and the application error came up straight away. I then thought Sims 3 may have interfered with Sims 2 somehow so I installed Sims 2 on my C drive (as oppose to my drive with all the games on) with no success.

Now this may be a problem with Sims 2/Sims 3 but when I was about to run dxdiag, I got the error "Problem getting extra sound info". I then checked iTunes to see if I had any sound and realised that iTunes wouldn't play any song preusmably because of the lack of sound. Same problem with any other game I play too, no sound! Here's my what dxdiag could come up with no sound:

Well, I now have sound but this is because I went in to Manage Audio Devices and switched to the second instance of AMD HDMI Output that was there, the other one produces no sound. Tried running the Sims 2 again with no luck. I am getting unspecified error now though instead of application error.

One more thing to add now, tried running as administrator and the game loads fine!

Just installed University EP and it rain without admin privileges so I guess I solved my own problem! I'll post again if anything happens after installing EPs/SPs.
