Try doing a factory reset as described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199
The Bluescreen errors is likely related to your graphics driver. Get DDU and use that to remove the Driver. https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html
Get the latest driver from here (you still don't have the latest) https://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk

download iobit unistaller. its a free app. from https://www.iobit.com/en/advanceduninstaller.php?b1
install. choose your NVIDIA drivers/program unistall. once its done and asks for a reboot, choose NO or later, and let iobit do its thing. choose to erase all files/registry keys left behind. after that is done, restart then install the NEW nvidia driver.
Is the geforce card not listed in the dropdown when you run DDU? Also DDU does not have an option to update the driver so where do you see that?
