I have read older posts where people have had this problem using the Sims2. I have the Sims2 and ALL expansion packs and it runs perfectly fine. Never had this problem before. Now that the Sims 3 is out, I am getting this problem. I went to the drivers and downloads sections and installed the driver updates for my computer and it still won't work. I can't talk with Dell because it's out of warranty. Has anyone found a way to get around this problem?? I have a Dimension E310. Thanks!
Since it is apparently a Sims 3 gaming problem, best to repost on the gaming section of the forum and let the gamers assist you.
It wouldn't be a Dell problem since everything else apparently is working OK, just the Sims 3 game. The Sims 3 has specific minimum hardware requirements and you should also check to make sure your PC's hardware meets the minimum requirements.
