The Sims 3 Seasons Is Crashing

Post by FatPrincess on Wed 12 Dec 2012, 18:10

Hey Ya'll! :newfag:


First of all to all the admins, thank you so much for supporting the torrents you make. Its a breath of fresh air to know I'm not completely alone if I have problems with a download. ^-^After reading the forum exhaustively I finally gave up and decided to ask for help.

I had the base game, ambitions, late night, generations and pets installed on my laptop for a while without a problem but suddenly when I downloaded and installed supernatural and seasons from here (after reading how extensively and downloading the fix) I've had the following issue. My computer will work mostly fine for awhile with a few minor jerky motions from my sims then the screen will flash black twice then completely freeze or crash to desktop. I have already done the data execute prevention step and am running out of solutions. Can you help? Help

Hey thanks for answering!

I turned off the mods and that didn't help so I went immediately for the video card force off option. I have an Intel video card and it doesn't have an option to turn it off. In fact, when I looked at Intel's forum, a lot of people are complaining about my same issue with another game. Hmmm... I will continue to try the steps though.

Please keep on trying it and test the game to see if it still crushes. But remember, if you're on a laptop, some video cards are known to have issues with the game and therefore, there would be nothing that can be done.

But let's hope that's not the case. Please report back with results.

Okay I went ahead and downloaded the tool that can increase the amount of RAM the game uses. My gameplay improved drastically (4+ hours instead of 20 - 35 minutes) but in the end the game screen went black with just the music playing in the background and the still responsive arrow cursor moving on top. At that point a minimize screen does nothing and I have to CTRL ALT DEL to go into the task manager to close it. Is this the problem I should be expecting because its a laptop?

Hello,

No that's actually quite normal on all kinds of pc's. The best way to prevent this is to save often and try to shut down and reload the game after 2-3 hours.
A lot of people are having that issue and it has nothing to do with being on a laptop, or what kind of system you're on at all.

Hey Lady Eldi, I know this is the wrong section for this but since I've done the DEP step and messed around with the download that adds more RAM, my computer shut down and won't boot. Its not a power issue though. Is there a connection?

Hello,

That's entirely out of my league.. I'll ask Admin to offer his opinion.

Hello,

It won't turn on any more?
Try unplugging all power chords and removing the battery. Just let the laptop cool down for an hour or so, it's probably overheating.

After an hour, plug in the power chord (not the battery yet) and then try to start up the PC.
