Hi,

Are you by chance downloading mods?  Also, when you say, "install CC", do you mean install them through the launcher (sims3package files)?  

Please make sure you are not running any conflicting mods or conflicting custom content.  Smile

i dont think so cuz all the stuff i download is from the sims 3 resource and i never had any problems with installing content. im not downloading mods just clothes and that stuff (idk maybe those r mods too xd). when i go launch the game a black screen appears and i tried waiting for couple minutes and nothing happens, then i go into windows task manager and there i see that the game isnt responding, and then i just simply close it.

Hi,

Not a problem.  Mods are essentially files that you cannot install through the Launcher. If you are downloading from TSR, you aren't downloading mods, so no worries.  TSR only has clothing, furniture, hair styles, stuff like that.

Could you please do me one quick favor and re-do the steps here:  [Click!]

Please follow steps #2, #3, and #4 for me.  Your black screen is more than likely due to a crack error by either not applying the manual patch and ultimate fix correctly, or from not doing it at all.  Smile

This happened to me when i installed things that gave me in-game glitches. I know you may not want to get rid of all your custom content, but the only thing in the end that worked for me was to delete it all and be very careful installing more the next time.

Have you tried going into OS -> Program Files (x86) -> Electronic Arts -> The Sims 3 -> Game -> Bin -> opening TS3.exe or S3Launcher.exe?

This CC Magic will do wonders to your game! It helped me many time in the past and now I just don't play without it (and I don't even use much CC, just store content). It also makes your game running way smoother and I would advise this tool to everybody here that like to have tons of Store and CC content...

It looks for conflicts and, at same time, it puts lots of content together into a few large package files, so everything runs faster and smoother. I hope you like it! The link is below:

I'll second CC Magic, it really streamlines the troubleshooting process.  TSR may not offer mods themselves but they are also somewhat notorious for files on their site being improperly cleaned and that tends to lead to files that would otherwise not cause any issues giving you surprising new bugs.  This is usually a problem with houses downloaded from TSR but it would not surprise me if this applied to other content as well.  TSR has some wonderful content but it is a site that should be used with caution.  I'm not aware if anything like Clean Installer from TS2 exists for TS3 but if there is anything similar that would notify you as to everything included in a package hopefully someone here knows about it!
