Yeah that's what it's called ! ;)
Maybe a good idea, but when you install the base game it will always take loads of (or too much) time !!
I know cause I've done that like a zillion times, thanks to EA ! shame
You can always run a defrag after installing the base game.

This is a tool to sort and clean up your hard drive in your laptop Smile
You can find it in Windows under: All Programs, Accessories, System Tools and the program is called "Disk Defragmenter".
If your hard drive is very "fragmented" it may run for a couple of hours before it has sorted and cleaned up your hard drive. Maybe you can run it when you go to sleep, or when you're not working on your laptop.

Lol!!! I think the defrag is an awesome idea and you can also set your comp up to do this on a regular basis too. That's how I have mine set up because I always would forget to do it on a regular.

I sent you some advice on another thread about deleting some of your saves.


*I'm going to move this to tech support ok happydance

hiya broomie. i recamend you do this.

it's to find out you Basecore. ie what memory you have.

got to start menu. type in Windows Experience Index. you will see Check Windows Experience Index click on that. in the next window bottom right you will see Re-run the assessment. click on that and run it. after it has finished. you will get a Basecore. on the right in a small square.

you should see this



you need at lest 3.0 or more to run the sims3.



my basecore is 4.0

my processor is 7.0

my memory( ram ) is 7.1

my graphics is 4.0

gaming graphics is 5.4

primary hard disk is 5'9
