Hi there, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

Could you please tell us what graphics card do you have? Also, make sure that the drivers for it are up to date.

Have you tried changing the graphic options in-game? For example, lowering them or maybe even raising them a bit to see if there's any changes. Wink

Hi again!

Is the built-in graphics card from Intel? If so, you can use this tool to automatically update the drivers for it:
http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect

Also, please keep in mind that integrated graphics card are not optimal for gaming, as most of the time they can't handle intensive graphic power. Those graphics card are not 'supported' by The Sims 3, as it's a pretty graphic and process intensive game. Specially when you have a considerable amount of expansion packs installed. Are you playing on a laptop by any chance?

I suggest that you try maybe turning down the graphics from the in-game options to check if there's any improvement. Maybe closing some other processes in the background before starting the game may help too. If you don't have it, please check Gamebooster here:
http://www.iobit.com/gamebooster.php

It may help a little bit. Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck! Smile

The problem with the pets is kind of a glitch that the game has with unsupported graphic cards. So, it's normal that the other expansion packs (and the Sims) are working well while the pets are having this issue. You can get more info about that here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t2488-the-sims-3-pets-graphical-issues

But yes, please try that and let us know how it goes. Good luck! Smile

Hi again! Smile

Did you already update your drivers? If you did, I think that there aren't many options besides upgrading your PC to one with a supported graphics card. It doesn't need to be the best one out there, generally a dedicated GPU will work just fine. If you are in a laptop, then it's considerably harder.

Sorry that I can't really help you more, as it's a hardware problem. Sad

No, I don't think that updating a driver will affect the Windows you have in any way. You can safely update it and there isn't a reason of why would you encounter any problems. Good luck! Smile

Remember that by playing games on laptops with these "integrated graphics chips", you risk hardware damage, in the long run. Because these chips are just too weak.

You should not play for too long in one session, so maybe just play for an hour or so, and then exit the game.

If it is possible for you, you should try and get a desktop computer with a better graphics card (you don't need a strong desktop for playing Sims 3). Usually, desktops that are good enough for Sims games aren't so expensive, but yes.


In the long run, you may have to switch to different hardware. Good luck !
