When I load the Sims 2 onto my laptop the screen display has either "slipped" so I can't see the control panels etc, or they're just not there. All I can see is current sims actions at the top. I'm guessing screen res issues but how do I fix it? Thanks

Again, got it sorted myself - via the b/f!. I had copied some custom files from a desk top to the lap top and the screen res was stupidly high! Opened Sims 2 in a window - go to the properties section of the shortcut and in the target box leave a space after the last " and type -w. Then just remove this and open normally. This solved my problem and I am now a happy bunny again!
