Please help me. I updated to Windows 8.1 and now the Sims is all orange and blocky. What's going on?

I updated the driver. The picture is now orange, and the in game picture is 3D looking (blue and red). I should point out I know F all about computers.

There was a warning that you may have to re install applications when you upgrade to Windows 8.1. Go into the video driver control panel and see if you can turn off 3D. When you upgrade to Windows 8.1 the whole system gets reset. Please post your video card.

 

add: updating the video driver should have corrected the problem. Also try right click on empty spot on your Desktop and go to "NVIDIA Control Panel", under "Stereoscopic 3D" click "Set up stereoscopic 3D". Uncheck the radio box beside "Enable stereoscopic 3D" and click apply. Restart game if you have it open.

 

There have been a few reports of this problem.
