WHY WONT MY SIMS 3 WORK?

I just downloaded from Orgins the SIMS 3, SIMS 3 Pets, World Adventures, and Night Life onto my iMac Desktop. The reason for me downloading onto the iMac was because the SIMS on my PC laptop stopped working. After I updated to the lastest update my SIMS 3 began to have trouble Playing. When I would click play from the launch it wouldn't work! Simply a Black screen would appear. Now the SIMS 3 on my iMac will load the luncher and play, but will freeze up after nearly 5mins of playing time. I've tried numors soultions, but none seem to work. Its starting to fustrate me because I havent been able to paly in months. Can anyone please lend some advice?

 

Thanks in advacne!

We have a great guide about Sims on Macs here:

Mac users, this is for you.

 

You should also add more information to this thread: What OS version do you have? What are the specs of your Mac (e.g. processor, memory, graphics card)? What issues are you seeing exactly? Does it only freeze at a certain point or with a certain household or with a certain world?
