Make sure your graphics card drivers are up to date, Make sure your graphics card is compatible, Make sure your using the latest version of DirectX (DirectX 9.0c) (Start / Run "dxdiag")

You could try compatibility mode.

Simply right-click on the Sims 2 icon on your desktop (or wherever you launch the game from) and select "Properties" then click the "Compatibility" Tab and select:

"Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
Then navigate the drop down box to:

"Windows 98 / Windows Me"

If it still doesnt work try and do a Microsoft Windows Update.
