The Sims 3 Has Stopped Working (Tried almost all of the fixes)

Post by kadelack28 on Wed 10 Apr 2013, 09:36

Hi, I hope you guys can help me fix my game. When I try to start a game, after 10-15 minutes, it says "The Sims 3 has stopped working". I tried reinstalling, putting The Sims 3 in DEP (but there is one .exe file that prevents me on adding it to the DEP, which is LauncherW.exe), removing the Custom Content (tried the packages), and I used the program in Mod The Sims, "The Sims 3 Crash Log Analyzer", and it's giving me this error: "Max Memory Used - Try to reduce memory usage by lowering settings". But my game is already in the lowest possible settings. Before I had this problem, I was able to able to run the game with the settings almost set to max, and is running fine.

Here's the specs of my laptop:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz 2.50GHz
RAM: 8.00 GB (7.89 GB usable)
System Type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor
Display Adapters:
AMD Radeon HD7600M Series
Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000

By the way, it is Windows 8, if that helps. Hope you guys can help me. Help

Please don't bump, we will help as soon as we are able. (Especially when it's only been a few hours since it was posted, I personally was asleep for both posts)

Try backing up and removing "Documents/Electronic Arts/Sims 3" then play test.

What did you change before it started doing this? Anything at all about your computer or the game could cause this.

Sorry for the bump, I was too desperate to get my game fixed. Won't happen again. Sad

Anyway, yeah I tried backing up the Documents file. About the changes, I think I've done a few tweaks on my Catalyst Center (Control Panel for my Video Card). Maybe I'll try tweaking again. Should I post a screenshot of the Catalyst?

You could, it may help one of us.

I would try restoring the settings to what they were before you played with them.

Here is a screenshot of the Catalyst. Maybe you know what to set? I'll try returning to defaults, same with the Intel properties.


EDIT: Sorry, forgot to include the screenshot. Sad




EDIT EDIT:

I have a question, in my base game, C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin, I somehow can't add the Sims3LauncherW.exe and Sims3Launcher.exe in the World Adventures. Is this normal? 'Cause this might be the reason why I keep getting the "The Sims 3 has stopped working".

Hello,

You definitely have enough RAM so that shouldn't be the problem. Personally I think your settings are quite normal but again, I don't think this is what's causing the problem.
When adding exe's to the DEP, make sure you're logged on as administrator.
