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.

Did this happen after you installed a certain expansion/stuff pack, or just suddenly?

I'm grasping at straws here, but maybe it's because you have too many things installed? A certain mod or something?

It might be because your computer simply can't support all the stuff packs and expansions. Does your computer have just the minimum settings, or just it meet the recommended settings?

If nothing else works, you could try re-downloading. Make sure you don't delete the things you want, though.

I think it's because of the RAM. If you have every single expansion pack and stuff pack, it takes a lot of juice. Try removing some of the stuff/expansion packs and see how it works, or try upgrading your RAM to 8GB or 16GB.

Hello,

Actually 4Gb of RAM is more than enough for The Sims 3.
I don't think it can actually handle more, since it's a 32-bit game.

Hello,

Not sure whether this has been suggested already, but try using GameBooster.

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
Unfortunately we were not able to get back to you in time. I'd like to apologize for that.

Do you still need assistance?
