CLA is just an indication. What is says is not set in stone. It rather works by elimination than anything else (often tells you it's cc just cause you have some installed).

Have you tried all the stuff here: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/FAQ-Game-Crashes-CTD/td-p/656/ ?

  • What is your operating system
  • At what point does your game crash ? Any regularities ?
  • How long can you usually play ?
  • Which EP/SPs do you have installed ?
  • Are you using custom content and mods in your game ?

Do you happen to have a switchable graphic card in your computer ? A chip and a card ?

Good Luck and Happy Simmin
