i just bought the game Sims 3 and I can create a sim, but as soon as I go into building mode or even to play with the sim, it freezes, and then it goes black. I have all the requirements for the game. but I dont know what I should do about not being able to play the game in build mode, or live mode

Sounds like it's your graphics card, is it Nvidia? My game would run for a few minutes and the computer would just switch itself off.

So, if your card is Nvidia, you should do the following, it worked for me!!!

1 - Open the Control Panel
2 - Open the Nvidia Control Panel
3 - At the top of the Control Panel, select "Advanced Settings"
4 - Select "Advanced"
5 - On the side menu, click "Manage 3D Settings"
6 - Change "Conformant Texture Clamp" to "Use OpenGL specification"
7 - Change "Force Mipmaps" to "Trilinear"
8 - Change "Texture Filtering - Trilinear Optimization" to "On"
9 - Change "Vertical Sync" to "Force On"

Save your new changes and it should do the trick!

Happing Simming!!!
