Can't change OPTIONS?! [SOLVED]

Post by PauSprouse on Tue 24 Jul 2012, 12:30

Hello, games4theworld! I recently reinstalled Sims 3. When I opened up to the game and change my options, it won't change! Sad First I wanted to change the screen resolution because my Windows 7 laptop is too big for the actual screen. But then, it won't budge and the other options as well.

I tried removing mods but it doesn't work. Sad

Hello,

Do you have expansions, and what's your base game version?

Hello,

Do you own the game? Because a torrented base game doesn't work right with the most current crack without one of the following: Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry, Showtime, Master Suite, Pets, Town Life or Generations.

Hello,

What can you tell us about your pc specs? And how they do compared to TS3's requirements. You can test it here.

Hello,

Have you tried removing this folder: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 ? Be sure to back it up first.

Hello,

Go to the manufacturers website, they usually have a tool that lets you select your cards make&model and your OS and they'll tell you whether or not it needs to be updated after a short scan.

Hello,

If you can't find them, just let me know what your graphic card's model is, what operating system you're on and whether it's a 32-bit or a 64-bit system. I'll then find the correct driver for you.

Hello,

Assuming you've got a NVIDIA card, please download and install this driver: http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/VGA/VGA_NVIDIA_9.10.0513_XPx86_A.zip?acerid=634792354177846795&Step1=NOTEBOOK&Step2=ASPIRE&Step3=ASPIRE%204750&OS=ALL&LC=en&BC=ACER&SC=PA_7
If possible, choose "Custom" and then "Clean installation" during the installation.

Please let us know the result and good luck!

Ps. DO NOT forget to restart your PC after installing the driver!

Hello, I did not have any chance to choose custom installation because it didn't say anything. But other than that, it installed successfully.

I will restart my computer now. I'll let you know if I still have problems.

Hello,

Glad to hear it works now!
That's not a standard resolution.
You should just experiment and see what looks best on your monitor.
