Random crashes, freezes, and error 12  
I recently got a new notebook so I haven't figured out all of its kinks *sweats*
So, onto my sims issues!
I installed the game yesterday and it randomly crashes, I'd like to say it happens every hour but I'm not too sure of that. I have played with DEP and my drivers should be up to date. I had the graphics at high but slowly have been lowering them to see if that was the problem. I also took the CC I had out and it still crashed. I checked the log only to have it say insufficient memory. I have 8gb (or so I think) and when I opened the task manager it barely showed 6 being used. Uh, I'm fairly new to playing around this the dxdiag and the sims logs honestly. When I got into CAS it freezes and the sims turn pitch black, I usually have to wait 10 or more minutes for it to unfreeze only to have it crash a little later. Also when I get the game to play at all I randomly (it rarely happens but when it does it wont stop and then it'll crash) get a error code 12. I have deleted the sims world and started a new one but I still get those. I am at my wits end. Should I uninstall the game? Is the game not compatible with my notebook? What am I doing wrong?

Here is the basic crash log

My older laptop played the sims with minimal to no crashing (and when it did crash it was always corrupt CC that was easly fixed) So I have no understanding as to why this one is such a bother.
I have posted in thesims3/forum as well, but it's like talking to a brick *sweats* I hope that someone can help me with this issue. Laymans terms would be most helpful

Have you run the crash log analyzer? It's saved my game several times.
violetpoofvioletpoof on June 3rd, 2012 04:50 am (UTC)
Yes, in fact that is the crash log at top. It said insufficient memory *sad*
I don't really know what to do about it, I reinstalled the sims and now says that the video card is unrecognised. So frustrating.

It might be your processor. I know that the minimum req to run Sims 3 is something like only 2Ghz, but I have crashing problems as well, even at all graphic settings at their lowest with no CC and no mods. And I have plenty of memory and a great graphics card, so all I can think is that a higher, or even duo core processor might make things run muuuuuch better.
violetpoofvioletpoof on June 3rd, 2012 04:41 pm (UTC)
Oh my gosh! You may be right, I guess I'll have to overclock the processor. Thank you, I'll see if that works.
collie.nebulast on June 3rd, 2012 04:48 pm (UTC)
No problem! And if you think to, let me know how it works. I've been considering overclocking mine, but I've never done it before so I'm reluctant. ;) But if it makes a noticeable difference, I might have to!

I have read about overclocking the processor and that just doesn't seem savory in my opnion. Although I can understand things going faster, the game itself already runs faster than a jackrabbit on hot coal. I just need it to stop crashing. Seems to me that if I do overclock it, I'll end up making it crash faster since the disc wont be able to run up to speed with the notebook anymore =___=. I'd say in other words, I am too chicken to do it. I did try but I couldn't get to the BIOS and it only gave me the option to overclock the graphics card. Which is something unneeded because the sims 3 doesn't recognise it anyway. So far after uninstalling it and not patching to 1.33 or not sending my sims on the simsport or not downloading origin has made it not crash. At least for now. I will have to test it longer to see it if will randomly again. NEBLAST I seem to be more reluctant that I thought lol. Sorry >___<
OHSIMS I am looking forward to seeing what Game Booster 3 can do for me. I can't always get rid of all the running programs during a gaming session so, this for sure will help! Thank you so much both of you!
