The Sims 3 won't launch

I recently bought The Sims 3. Yesterday, It was working just fine. But today, it won't launch from Origin or when I click the icon on my desktop. When I click "Play" on Origin, it says "Launching the sims 3" it closes automatically, the loading sign comes up and then it says "not responding" but when I click the Sims 3 icon on my desktop, the loading sign comes up for 1 second, goes away, but does NOTHING. I also tried restarting my laptop, but then it does the same thing. I really want to play, but it keeps acting up.

Re: The Sims 3 won't launch

Did you add anything to your game since it stopped working ?

 

Try bypassing the launcher as described here: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps/td-p/714/

This is just for testing purposes to see if the game itself works.

No. I did not. This didn't help. The game simply won't launch at all from my desktop or Origin.

Re: The Sims 3 won't launch

Try the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps/td-p/714/
