Game won't start.

Muy daughter bought this computer till play her Sims 4 games on. When she attempts to start the game it flashed  several times, then gave the message, the pc has run into a problem, and restarted the computer. Any ideas?

Not sure if I can help, but will try or find someone who can.

Was the game working prior on that computer and suddenly start this error, or is this the first time you've run this game?


The computer should be able to run the game on low settings just fine.

It could be a lot of things but at the momen, Im leaning towards hardware related.

As you boot the computer, rapidly tap the F2 key to bring up the Hardware Diagnostics UEFI. Run the extensive set of tests for everything.
