Sound issues in Sims 3

★★★★ Novice

In Sims 3, for some reason, I can't hear any sounds while playing. I recently bought and installed Seasons expansion pack, and I'm not using mods. I'm playing in a family of two in Riverview.

 

Basically what happens, is that when I load the saved game, I hear no sounds from the game at all, or I can hear some basic talking and clicking sounds, but after a few seconds the sound stops. This is the first time something like this happens, and I've had my Sims 3 for over a year now and I've bought many expansion and stuff packs. These issues started after I moved into a new house some Sim days earlier.

 

I deleted Options.ini file and DeviceConfig.txt files from the Sims 3 folder in my documents in order to try to fix the issue (I saw the tip in an other website), however it didn't fix the issue.

 

I have the latest patches and drivers are up to date.

I deleted the files without the success.  The only change I've made was to upgrade to Win 8.1 Pro.  Any other suggestions?

Check if there are new drivers for your audio.

I had a similar sound issue, I was able to hear the basic sounds, however not the sounds made by the Sims "talking" or the sounds build in the UI when we click on some items, or in Buy and/or Build mode etc.

 

I deleted the cashe files as you said and it did fixed my problem, so thanks a lot
