    I have installed the game and when I wanted to launch it, it won't start. The screen says "Sims3Launcher has stopped working. Windows can check online blablabla..". Im using Windows 7 and this is my dxdiag details. I really hope you can help me with this.

    To start with i would look and see if that Intel graphics chipset is compatible with the game.

    I don't think the Intel 45 series will work with the game.
    Then you might want to go to Toshiba's website and download the latest graphics driver for your laptop as it says it's a couple years old.
    You can try bypassing the launcher too and see if it helps.

    Down the page there's a link to bypassing the launcher plus there might be something else here you might check as well.
    Make sure your laptop is getting plenty of cool air as this game can overheat your laptop if it's not getting plenty of cool air through the vents.
