ok, so i uninstalled using uninstaller pro program, then i restarted my computer and reinstalled. i loaded up sims 3 and went to Create a household and got to the second sim's makeup. then it froze. it freezes but the music still plays and i end up having to start task manager to exit the sims 3. on task manager though it says it is not responding. does change anything? thanks again for helping me through this problem Very Happy

//EDIT

could it be because my dedicated video ram is only 64mb ?

Very well could be. 64MB is nothing these days and this game would eat through that like it was nothing. Out of curiosity, what video card do you have? Are you sure it meets the minimums?

it is the chip that is part of the motherboard in the computer... so that might be why. but everything on it meets the requirements except the dedicated video ram.....

Hello,

That sounds like it could be it for sure. Can you upgrade to a graphicscard? You don't necessarily have to spend a lot of money on it.

i can't though because it's not really a graphics card it's more of a chip that acts like a graphicscard and it's part of the motherboard so i can't replace it. so if that's the problem, looks like i'm going to have to get a new computer :/ thanks for all the help though! i really do appreciate it!

Hello,

Yes, just plug in the new one. It should automatically start using the separate one, if you installed all drivers correctly.

It's hard to tell which one is the cheapest for you, it really depends on your country and local availability of a specific product.

Hello,

Start with low settings and work your way up until you notice a performance hit or other problems. Depending on the graphics the laptop uses, I feel you should be able to use the game on medium settings at least. I'd keep "high detail" lots and draw distance limited to 1/low though.

Hello there,

If you have a lot of Custom Content and Mods, those can cause slow loading screens.

The only way I know of to download more than one at the same time, is to register for the mediafire paid account.

Hello,

You can grab the items per month. That should speed up the process considerably.
Slow loadingscreens can also be caused by having a slow(er) computer. My solution is to start the game, and prepare yourself a snack (or just go do something) while it loads. That's what I do.

Hello,

I'm not sure how to fix that. It happens at my end, but I always figured that was due to an old pc.
