Hellooo. I am having a bit of a problem with my game, and I would be very appreciative if someone would help me. I recently had a brand new hard drive put in my HP computer(about 450 gigabytes), and the drivers are up to date.After I got it back, I installed Sims 3, the Diesel Stuff expansion pack, and the Generations expansion pack. The first few days I played it, it had no problems, but yesterday I was in build mode when the screen went black for a few seconds, the mouse disappeared, and a blue screen popped up saying something went wrong. It then restarts itself and now it does it every time I play my game. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thank you (:

Hello

First, let see why the blue screen:

Download the following on your desktop:

Double click on BlueScreenView.exe

At the end of the scan, click on edit and then on select all

Go on file and click on save selected items

Save the log as bsod.txt
