Hey, I just brought sim 4 for pc on my laptop and nothing is working. Origin keeps saying it encounter a serious problem and was forced to close, therefore I can't get to the game at all. And even what it stays up long enough for me to click on my games tab in the origin, there's nothing there. I brought the disc so I really don't understand. Help please it crashes every 3 seconds and the laptop is all i have.
