Sims 3

★★★★ Newbie

I'd click on my launcher, everything is blank exept for the play button and the options like downloads, installed content etc. But when I click the play button, it goes to a black screen, It stays that way for about a minute or two then words appear saying "Windows can not load this screen saver" or something like that. I've restarted my computer, but after I do that the same thing happens. Hope someone can help :P

Hi @OnnaBanker,


Welcome to Answers HQ!


Let's try to find out what's happening with your The Sims 3 game. Could you tell us if you installed your game through Origin or using a DVD?


Also, could you please give us more technical information about your computer? A dxdiag would be very helpful. You can find instructions on how to get a dxdiag here, and you can attach it to your answer.
