Re: SIms 3 on Windows 10

I disagree wholeheartedly!

I have everything Sims 3 and now it won't play as of upgradigng to Win 10.

I have been looking for help from origins and win and neither can/are willing to help.

 

Where can I get help from?

 

So far I have uninstalled Sims 3 and reinstalled it from origins page and then a tech I was in a chat with had me restart my computer and they disappeared. And it still doesn't work.

 

What else can I do? It never asked for a disk before, but now it does, and when I load the disk it says it can't find the disk no matter how many times I hit try again.

It locks up the system repeatedly for me. Didn't have any problems under Windows 7. Big disappointment, I pretty much can't play at all anymore.

'Sims 3 Has Stopped Working"

★★★★ Newbie

I don't know if it was the new Windows 10 update, or maybe Origin installed my games wrong, but I had talked to a guy from EA last night and he said I had an awesome graphics card and there was no issue there, then he made me download something off the internet.  That didn't work. My sims3 game is still crashing.  Do I uninstall then reinstall my games again to fix this problem? So sad... What do I do folks?
