Computer shuts down by itself while playing Sims 3. [SOLVED]

Post by Xanxus25 on Thu 14 Feb 2013, 16:17

Hello! Good Day!
May you please help me with my problem?
Everytime I load a save file in The Sims 3, my PC shuts down by itself before the save file finishes loading! It always shut down by itself if the save file is loading halfway to finishing! This problem doesn't happen in my other games which are GTA 4, SimCity Societies, Civilization 5, Prototype, Darksiders 2, and Assassin's Creed! Only in Sims 3! This problem doesn't even happen in my old laptop even though it is not too high end compared to my current PC.

Here are the Expansion and Stuff Packs I have installed:
World Adventures
High End Loft
Ambitions
Late Night
Generations
Pets
Master Suite
Showtime
Diesel
Seasons

Current Patch is 1.42

Here are my PC's specs:
Processor : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8400 3.00 GHz
RAM : 3 GB
OS : Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Graphics Card : ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series
Remaining Space in Hard Disk : 751 GB

Hoping for your answer.

Are you using any mods/cc?

Does the game load fine on a new game?

Yes I use mods and CC. Well, the game loads fine on a new game when you choose EA made worlds (Sunset V, Bridgeport, Riverview, etc.). That save game was saved on a very large custom made world that I downloaded.

Another question, is my RAM to low for that many expansions? Because I'll add more expansions and stuff packs.

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
No, 3GB RAM should be enough for The Sims 3. (Though there's never a harm in adding more to improve overall PC performance - especially on a 64-bit system)

Try backing up and removing all your Mods and Custom Content first. Then test the game again and let us know the result, please.

I'd also recommend following the instructions here : http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly : to update your game.

So do saves in other towns work fine then, and it's just the one in the large custom world not loading?
