When it shuts down is it like a power cut shut down or it somthing else?

Does it happen with just the sims or other games to??

No, it just shuts down. No warning or anything thing like it. I even tried reinstalling all the sims 3 games, tried the DEP. No luck at all.

If it shutting down, also no confirmation on if it a power cut type shut down, I suspect its power supply, but you not confirmed once again if it just Sims or other games to or in general shut downs

Isn't your laptop louder when you play The Sims 3? Cause I think your laptop is overheating because of the fan

Hello,

Do you only have the base game installed?
If yes, see if your laptop can run the game at all, please: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri

Are you using a cooling pad or have your laptop on a desk/ table when you play? Because this does sound like it may be overheating.

Hello,

Try this too, just to be sure:

1. Turn off the laptop.
2. Take out the battery.
3. Press and hold the POWER button for about 5 seconds.
4. Do not insert the battery, but connect the power cord.
5. Turn on your laptop.
6. Test the game. (DO NOT put back the battery (yet))

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
Hold it without the battery and power cord plugged in. (To release all the power)

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
I'm clueless at this point; are you sure it isn't a Blue Screen of Death or something?
If not, indeed, let's try reinstalling. Please do so as follows:

*Backup your savegames

1. Completely uninstall The Sims 3 and all expansion packs using Your Uninstaller! Pro from www.games4theworld.org . Use the "Super Mode".
2. Restart your PC, after uninstalling everything.
3. Reinstall everything, following these instructions: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
DO NOT skip any steps and RE-DOWNLOAD both the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix.

4. Test the game and let us know the result.

Good luck!

Go to the Event Viewer you can get to it by pressing Win-key+R and typing in eventvwr.msc then hit enter. Click on Application and look for errors that occurred about the time your computer shut down.

Hello Johoson,

Are you still using GameBooster? If not, please keep using it.
Also, when in-game, lower all graphic sliders to their lowest setting and turn off extra features like "Smooth rendering".

//EDIT

Oh and, try playing in Windowed Mode too.
