Anybody else had blue screen of death shortly after installing the sims 4? [SOLVED]

Post by IronicCabbage on Tue 21 Jul 2015, 20:38

Every computer/laptop i've installed Games4theworld's The Sims 4 on has died shortly afterwards, Mostly due to hard drive errors, and the computer support people i've taken them into have had no clue what has caused them all to kaput, They suggested a virus on the main PC but were unable to find any traces of one.

The only thing the devices had in common is that I installed The Sims 4 on all of them shortly before their death. So, I just wanted to know if anybody else who has installed the sims 4 on their devices has had the same/similar issues? 

I'm not suggesting games4theworld's torrent has a virus, but that maybe something in the game is killing them.
I know it's not a mass thing or nobody on the forums would still be using the game, But if anybody else has had similar problems i'd really appreciate if you told me as i'm trying to decide whether to reinstall it on another computer because I miss the game.

Also I just got my laptop back after having it's hard drive replaced and really cant kill it again, Any suggestions at making sure it says fine if I do decide to reinstall The Sims 4 on this laptop?

Thanks, Hope y'all have a nice day and I really appreciate everything the staff here do Smile

Welcome to the forum and sorry for the late reply,


When the bluescreen shows up, what are the last 2 or 3 symbols in the code starting with 0x0... ? Or, if you run Windows Vista or a later Windows OS, you should get a window popup, the next time you start the computer after the bluescreen. Inside the window, there is a line named BCCode. Can you post a screenshot of that (alternatively) ?

Ah sorry I forgot this topic was still open, As no other simmers replied I assumed it wasn't the sims and went ahead and reinstalled it-No Bsod this time! Smile

I think it may have actually been the microsoft office download, because that conflicted with a strange ghost of office starter still on my laptop, same for the other PC. Alternatively it might have just been a bit of a coincidence, Sorry for jumping the gun and blaming your Sims 4 download! 

I looked for my old bsod screenshots but I think they got deleted, If anybody else does have a similar issue ever I could try going through old files but there are thousands and it'd take awhile! Razz 

Thank you for replying though, I really appreciate you trying to help Smile

Sometimes, BSODs can happen randomnly indeed, but I think this is rather rare. I hope that in your case, there is no serious damage on the computer or something.

Feel free to open a new thread anytime again, or send me a private message, if the problem occurs again, so that I can unlock this thread.

Problem solved (for now), topic closed. Smile
