Sims 3 won't start up

Post by RWP on Mon 17 Feb 2014, 19:40

I have downloaded and applied the latest ultimate fix, but now when I launch the game I just get a black screen and when I open up task manager it says that The Sims 3 is not responding. Any idea what could be causing this?

Thanks a bunch

Hello and welcome! Very Happy
A few questions:
Is your game updated to latest version(vr. 1.67)?
Do you get any error when the black screen pops up?

Can you go to MyDocuments/ElectronicArts/TheSims3 and rename TheSims3 to anything you want and then start the game...
This will start your game without any mods/cc or anything like that... Smile

Yes it is the latest version. No error messages, just black screen. Tried re naming the folder you mentioned and that still did not fix the issue.

Thanks
