Sims 3 loads then crashes

Post by angelling31 on Sun 05 Feb 2012, 17:45

After yesterday when I couldn't start the game up (got the no disc error), I reapplied the fix, following everything and my game is patched to the latest updates. Yesterday when playing the game crashed 3 times after 10 minutes of play randomly, I'd be playing then just suddenly it's crashed. Today I've gone on to the game again and here is what I see: click and when loading my game it's just this: click and half way through loading the game crashes. I thought it was custom content so I removed it all but still nothing. I've just updated all my drivers also

Hello,

What about Mods, do you have any?
Do you get an error when the game crashes?

I have no mods, I removed them all and the only message I get is "Sims 3 has stopped working" and that's it

Hello,
Double check your video drivers, just to make sure they're up to date. I've found this thread on EA's own help forums, its the same issue as yours. You never know what comes up if you scan through it.

I have the same problem, I tried using the compatibility and the dep stuff but no results in the begining it shows the same picture as the one posted by angelling31 and then when i either select a new game or load an existing game it starts loading and then crashes before the bar reaches the end it crashes at about 10% filled.
I don't have any mods

Hello,
Please open your own topic, its easier for us to help you if everyone's problems are handled separately and the cause of your problem might be something completely different than someone else's. Thank you.

Hello,
I think your best bet is to uninstall and try again. But before you do something so drastic, you want to do this first:

1. Go to: (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\
2. Backup (Read: copy to an other folder) the folder called "The Sims 3".
3. Now completely remove the "The Sims 3" folder from: (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\
4. Start the game and see if it works now.

This makes the game think its a fresh installation and all the folders in your documents with their files are created fresh by the game.
If its still a problem, I suggest a complete uninstall (using youruninstallerpro). Don't forget to restart your pc before reinstalling.
After it's reinstalled, you can get your save games back from the folder you copied during step 2 (see above).
