Sims 3 Won't Launch

Post by Leasha9227 on Tue 14 Jan 2014, 07:49

hey there, so i was playing sims 3 when my game crashed (normal on an irregular basis lol) and now when i go to launch my game it stops responding before it even gets to the loading screen (black screen with loading mouse pointer). i didnt do anything different with starting it up (i use Razor Game Booster) i even tried not using the program just using the sims 3 launcher and restarting my laptop. i have all game stuff and expansion packs from you guys all recent updates, no new mods, etc. 
thanks in advance for any help provided!

//EDIT//
I ran the latest expansion by right clicking on icon and running as administrator and i got past the black screen with loading mouse pointer!

Hello,

Did you have a look at this topic here, and have you tried doing all steps ? http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-7-01-2014-updated

Try all steps. And if your Windows is a 64-bit one, AND if your computer has at least 4 GB of RAM installed, try step #3 in particular. Download that "4 GB patch" and then double-click on it. In the window that comes up, choose the TS3W.exe in your base game location.

Also, I'm not sure if your problem is the same as the one from this user here, but have a look at my suggestions in the following topic: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t14295-ts3-black-screen-nothing-working-solved

Good luck and keep us updated !

P.S. please use the "edit"-button on your post if you want to add anything to your original message. Everything else is considered like spamming on here, and it also means more work for me since I have to merge the double-post. Wink
