Sims 4 Crashes My PC

★★★★ Novice

I can play the Sims 4 for a little while on my PC, but if I stay in build mode too long or I make my sims travel, my entire computer crashes. I have to go to my PC and turn off the power supply, turn it back on, then reboot my computer after this. I thought it was the CC I had installed at first, but I've ran multiple tests on the CC and it doesn't seem to be causing issues. My PC can definitely handle the Sims 4 I built it specifically for Sims 4, what could be the issue? I thought maybe the graphics settings might have to do with it but I'm unsure at this point.

Do you have any Mods or CC? If so move your Mods folder to the Desktop and delete localthumbcache.package. Then test the game.

If it works now check for updates to your Mods and CC. Add it back a little at a time while testing until you have found all that are broken.
