Hello,

Thanks for using fixya.

My name is Carlo.

Your computer might not pass the system requirements that's why it has an error. Or, you can try installing it one more time and check if it will work. Computers do mess up sometimes.

Here's the system requirement of SIMS 3:

Desktop PC (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Desktop PC (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Laptop (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

Laptop (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 2 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

IF your computer does not pass the system requirement, then you cannot play sims3 in your computer.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya

My desktop gateway 3 series does not have a video card.....I would like to add one....is it hard to do so ??I want to buy a geforce 9600 or greater...


It is not so difficult as it seems to be.
First ensure that your computer meets the system requirement for installing a particular Video Card. You can get these details on the box of that card.
Once you are ready with all the details and the compatible card, follow the instructions as under:

  1. Turn off your computer and disconnect the power chord
  2. Open the Cover of your computer Tower.
  3. Disconnect the monitor cable from the Onboard VGA
  4. Locate the compatible card slot.
  5. GEForce 9600 would require a pci express slot
  6. Match the notch on the card with the Card slot and insert the card with a slight push.
  7. Fix the card to cabinet with a screw on top
  8. Connect the Monitor cable to the newly installed Video card
  9. Close the cover
  10. Connect the Power cable
  11. Restart the computer
  12. Your operating system will detect the new Video card and prompt you for drivers
  13. Installed the necessary drivers from the CD provided with the Video card
  14. Finish the installation and reboot the system
That's it you have a new Video card installed !!

Please let me know if you need any further help in regards to this.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

Disable the existing video card in device manager and try again. The onboard video will always try to take first spot, so disable it ...your video will still work until you can install the new video card :)

How much watts of power do i have?


the 9600GSO uses arounf 250 watts under load. While I cannot fing exact spec for the HP PSU I would be surprised if it were more that 350W. Is there any indication on the case or can you open the case up and look at the PSU?

9600 GSO Power

You need somthing in the order of 450W or greater. Get an Enermax, Corsair or other good quality PSU.
