Okay so the other day I purchased Sims 3 because it look really fun. Now, I am having a huge problem and I am unsure of what is causing the error.

Whenever I play Sims 3, after a short amount of time it will turn black, make a loud beeeping noise consistently and will say "Sims 3 has stopped working. WIndows is looking for a solution" IK it isn't the DEP because I tried that fix...at least i think i did it right. Any thoughts?

Try playing it in window mode.its likely to be the game compatibility problem.

Sims 3 is just, in general, a bucket of unfortunate when it comes to running properly.

Try disabling most of the extra graphical options, see if that might help. I know the game has serious issues with anti-aliasing, amongst others.

Try with everything not-maxed/disabled.

EDIT: Ignore. I just got off work, so I didn't properly comprehend what I read.
