Flickering bars across the screen

★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? None
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I do not know
What happens when the bug occurs? I get flickering bars across the screen, glitching through different parts of the game. Goes away in screenshots
What do you expect to see? A solid screen that just shows normal gameplay
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

When I start the game up, I get flickering bars across the screen going through layers of gameplay. I have just installed the sims 4, have no mods or packs running. The game is barely used and this glitch is incredibly distracting.
