Disc Authorization Failure

I have the Sims 3 and some expansion packs

I installed it on my new laptop,the installation went fine and when i open the game,it all goes well until the menu. It keeps telling me "Disc Authorization Failure: Your disc is not a valid copy of the Sims 3"  or something along those lines....

I never had this problem before,my copies of the Sims 3 and it's expansion packs are not pirated or anything,i bought them all.

Extra info: My laptop is running on Windows 8,I've installed The Sims 3 on another computer previously
