I REALLY appreciate that! I thought that I was posting the DXDIAG that everyone talks about 😬. I don’t know what to do. I posted it to my case followed all the directions and when I click on request call it doesn’t let me. I have no idea how to get in touch EA 🤦🏼‍♀️

Re: sims 4

You are posting your MSinfo all over the place, which isn't a wise idea.

If you want we can look at you issue, but I need a DxDiag for that. 
Feel free to delete any personal information like the 'machine name'. You can attach the DxDiag to your next reply in this post.
You can read about how to gather your DxDiag over here:

HI @eire6678

 

your card is fine, should work with that

 

please try the following things

 

  1. See if it starts in windowed mode
  2. Disable full screen optimization
  3. Turn off Origin In Game
  4. If you have a dual graphics system, make sure the game runs on the card and not the chip
  5. Uninstall and reinstall your graphics drivers
  6. Rollback to earlier graphics drivers
  7. Right click on the game in Origin and press repair game

Test after each step

Happy Gaming
