Sims 2 and Sims 4 incompatible??

So I had the Sims 2 installed on my laptop, then decided, what the heck, i wanna play Sims 4 since I've invested over 60 bucks for in it now. So I download the Sims 4 onto my laptop via origin, but then neither one will open - no matter how much I click them.

I've factory-reset my laptop (it's the only thing that worked) and installed the Sims 4 on it, but I don't dare install the Sims 2 on it in case it breaks both of them.

My laptop runs Windows 10, and I can give you the processor specs if needed. I would love to be able to play both on my laptop, so any help is greatly appreciated!

    Do you start them with Origin? Reinstall Origin maybe..
    English is not my first language so sorry if I make any mistakes!

    you should not have a problem playing either on Win 10. I have and play TS2, TS3, and TS4 on my computer.

    Are you running 32 or 64 bit Windows

    No, the two should not interfere with one another.
