Hello,

A lot of people are experiencing random game crashes after the release of Seasons and we assume it's an issue that needs to be fixed by EA, but you may try the solutions posted here.

Hello,

How about the other things, did you try those?
Do you have mods/cc at all?
All your drivers and your OS up to date?

Hello,

You want to reinstall the entire game? These instructions will help you out, but you could start with steps 2-4 first, before you uninstall and reinstall everything. It can make a difference.

Hello,

Yes please, to make sure you have the latest version of both, and reapply them. Even if you've already used the patch and the fix before.

I finally found out why. This is what I did.
1)Used the ultimate fix
2)Manually update Sims 3
3)Put #crack into correct files
4)Backup and Delete the Document/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3
5)Use the 4gb patch to all .exe files
6)Turn off antivirus
7)PUT A FAN UNDER MY LAPTOP

it works and didnt crash, although something freezes, but it become normal after that.

It auto shut down is because my computer is overheat, as they say, the graphic card is overheat due to the sims 3 gameplay!
Problem solved, but one more topic I've open, it's about another installation problem, pls help me solve it! Thanks alot!!

Hello,

I completely overlooked that option Facepalm since we've been seeing so much of these problems lately. Good that you fixed it Smile
