Driving me crazy!

Sims 2000 is a game i loved playing back in the day and i still own it to this day and have transferred the hard drive containing the game onto my laptop (Atom based with integrated Intel HD) but there seems to be a problem of which i have never encountered. When i open Sims, i am able to play it for 10 minutes (maximum) before i am sent out of the window and i am given a message which says :

Sims has stopped working, windows is trying to find a solution.

And after it says:

Sims has been closed and windows will notify you when a solution has been found.

I have been waiting for ages and yet nothing has returned.

Does anyone know the solution.

Thanks in advance.
