Is RAM the same as memory?

And how much RAM/Memory should I get in order to get my game working again?

I don't get it. What exactly is it?

Okay I have just a few more questions.

How do I upgrade my RAM and video card? And exactly how much would it cost to do so. Sorry i'm not very computer savvy =P

Thanks for all of your help! I appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions. Hopefully upgrading my RAM will allow me to play the game again.

Do think if I tried to uninstall Bon Voyage, it might work again? And then if after I upgraded my video card and RAM, I could try and reinstall it?

I'm going to ask you one more time to be patient and stop bumping your post. Everyone has their own lives outside of the sims and this site.

Now, I've taken a look at your exception log and I see you have the infamous 0xC0000005 ACCESS_VIOLATION error. I call it infamous because on average I help one person a day with this problem. This is linked to a RAM issue and can be caused by a number of reasons. It can be faulty RAM, an incorrect or corrupt driver or even adware. Looking further down on your log, I see this:

System memory: 512 Megabytes total, 40 Megabytes free.

The sims requires 512 mb of FREE memory to run. You have 512 mb to run your whole system, according to this, and with background tasks, etc running, you've got only 40mb free to run the game.

carlymichelle asked you for this, and I would like to see this too: what are your computer specs?


Sorry. I haven't been able to play my game for a week and its really starting to frustrate me and make me impactient. Thanks again for helping.

Anyone have any other suggestions?

I have two expansion packs. Nightlife and Bon Voyage.

Do you think I should try put in the disk for Nightlife and play that and see if it works?

I don't know if I want to risk uninstalling BV yet because I paid like $50 for it. If I uninstalled it would I lose my CC and the sims i've downloaded/installed?

I think this is possibly from the sims I installed because I was playing the game fine a few days ago. Then I install two new Sims. Then, when I went to play my game thats when everything was crashing and freezing.

Is there a way to uninstall things you've installed with the Sims 2 Clean Installer? I know I have tried deleting the files but i dont know if they were actually uninstalled.

have u downloaded a hack???  that happen to me before.
think of the last thing u downloaded.
try taking your Download folder out and delete Group Cache file.
Start the game up and don't login the neighborhood, login out the game and put your download folder back in,restart the game back up and let group cache file regenerate it self.


I tried that. It didn't work.

When I tried it without CC, it didn't actually crash. It just...stopped. Right after the first loading screen it just X'd out without actually like "crashing" I guess. That happened twice.

Sad

Try pulling your entire downloads folder. It's possible something you've had in there has gotten corrupted, and please be patient. Not everyone who can help is online when you are.

Go into My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2. You'll see some files there you can safely delete. Any one of them can corrupt and cause problems. They are:

Accessory.cache
cigen.package
Groups.cache

Other things you can try are to istall and run the Hack Conflict Utility (Sims 2>Programs) to see if there is something you have not getting along with something else. You can try updating your drivers. Also, what are your computer specs? If your game is generating an error log you'll find it in My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/Logs. Look for the latest exception error log and post it here as an attachment. That's everything I can think of at the moment.


I tried that Conflict Utility thing and it said I had 0 conflicts.

"Report Start 2/15/2008 10:34:15 PM
 
End Of Report
 
0 possible conflicts detected."

Here is the latest exception error:

So I can try and delete those three and see if it works?
