My Sim freezes when eating at a table

★★★★ Newbie

My Sims freeze when they grab a serving of food and going to a table to eat.  They put the food on the table and just stand there.  I can add other task like going to the bathroom, taking a shower etc and you can see under the needs it looks like the Sims is doing the task but the Sims is still standing in the same spot.  I have to get rid of all the tables and chairs and have my Sim eat at couch or Loveseat and put the dish on the coffee table.  Also it happens when they go to work, at the festivals or at work.  Once they get the food that's it the Sim will not move. It has happened a few times when Sims does random task but for the most part it is every time they eat.    I have to go to Manage Worlds and go back in.  Then the Sim is where it would be after doing at the tasks I have selected.  I did not have this problem until the last Orgin download about a month or so ago.  Can anyone please give me any suggestions on how to fix this.

Do you have any mods?
1. If yes - move mods folder to the desktop and try without it.
2. Delete localthumbcache.package file in the game folder - the game will create a new one but without saved errors - and fix the game in Origin. Origin/library - right click on TS4 - option "repair game"

However, such errors are often caused by too little RAM memory that the game gets from the system. If you have an integrated graphics card that also needs to use this memory, despite the theoretically this memory should be enough - it is not enough for the game to go smoothly.

Could you post your Computer's DxDiag?

What I need is the date of your drivers - This info should be in DxDiag
At the end of DXDiag is given the amount of free space on your C drive - check if you have at least 20 GB free space.
At the very bottom of your, DxDiag is a description of the problems with strange markings.
But In this situation, you have to find yourself if there are new drivers for your GPU
Check if your Windows is up to date

I don't have a description of problems from DXdiag but I think that
generally, the problem is the GPU because of the integrated graphics chip and maybe temporary lack of memory for the game
