I have been playing for months with no issues, but now I keep getting a pop up after ten minutes or so saying "The Sims 4 has stopped working- a problem caused the program to stop working correctly"
I don't play with mods or any cc, and I have repaired the game in origin/ checked for updates. Any ideas? Wondering if this was a computer issue or a game issue.
Many thanks in advance!

Your graphics driver is very old. Please go to downloadcenter.intel.com to update it. You may also want to get Intel support assistant so your Intel drivers are always updated.
@cehhoerr Sorry for the late reply. Your second dxdiag lists new errors related to the graphics driver, and I'd like to see whether HP has a new-enough driver available for your particular laptop—it might work better than the newest one from Intel. So please go here:
Enter your laptop's serial number, choose your OS (Windows 11) if prompted, and you'll land on the driver download page for your laptop. Please link this page; it doesn't have any information about your specific computer, just the overall model. The reason I'm asking you to link the page is that HP makes it extremely difficult to be sure that I'm looking at the correct support pages without using the serial number as a reference.
Your dxdiags also list a few Windows errors, so it's a good idea to run a couple of basic checks on your Windows system files:
Restart your computer, hit Windows key-i, select Update & Security, and click the box to check for updates. If any install, restart again afterwards.
