Anyone any ideas ?

Hi, try running all the Microsoft Widows Updates:
Start -> All Programs -> Windows Updates

Also, try update to the ".Net Framework 3.5 SP1"

Note: Google ".Net Framework 3.5 SP1" and the download link from microsoft.com should pop up.

Good Luck

Before updating .Net test to see if the game launches if you try to start it from the TS3.EXE icon in the game folder
(C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\TS3.exe)

If not then upgrade to 3.5 SP1
If this doesn't fix it you may want to try some of the additional steps here:
Upgrade your Question Security!

Your question, your audience. Choose who sees your identity—and your question—with question security.

you can also uninstall / reinstall the game
or do a system restore to a day it worked !

The laptop refuses to upgrade to 3.5 sp1 for whater reason.  (perhaps the op sys is corrupted)
