    When I first got the "Sims 3" game every time I tried to play it, it would crash. Later I learned that I didn't have enough RAM and that I needed to upgrade my graphics card. I took my computer to a shop and got another gigabyte of RAM and I bought a better graphics card. Then I went to "systemrequirementslab.com" and it says that I now meet and exceed all of the requirements for the game. But every time I play, the game closes about 5 minutes into gameplay. An error box would pop up saying that an error had occurred and that the game needed to close. I made sure that my drivers and my game was up to date. I tried lowering all of the game settings and putting the game in window mode, but it still crashed. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game twice. I even turned off my Norton anit-virus program, because some people said that the program might cause conflict with the game, but that didn't work either.

    Here are some of my computer specs:
    - System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional (Service Pack 3)
    - Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.06GHz
    - CPU speed: 3.08GHz
    - RAM: 1023.4 MB (around 2GB)
    - Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series
    - 98.3 GB of space left on my computer

    If somebody can PLEASE help me, I would really appreciate it.

    I hate to have to tell you this but a lot of people are having the same problem. If you haven't yet you might want to go to the Sims 3 Community Forum. There are a lot of people there offering solutions to problems like yours. In fact EA/Maxis has released a patch but you can only get it by using the EA Download Manager. Sorry I couldn't be more help but hopefully you will find it at the Sims 3 Forum.
