I have called the game a “financial hit” and have been as gentle and diplomatic as I can when politely asking for help.
That said, I also made it clear that if people were to continue attacking me with abuse, they would be banned just like anyone else — and they are.
This is not an attack on you — but on the game itself and the lack of quality control.
I am in no way suggesting that EA put out a buggy product — the point is that there should be some quality control in place at EA’s end-of-day when putting out a product so critical to hundreds of millions of people. Whether it’s true or not.
The ban will remain at their discretion for those who continue to attack me after all this. And yes, I’m speaking with them now…
After you’ve installed the newest game update and are trying to launch the game, it may display a message saying: “The display driver stopped responding and has recovered” or similar.
After you’ve installed the newest game update and are trying to launch the game, it may display a message saying: “The display driver stopped responding and has recovered” or similar. This means exactly what it says — that your video card has crashed and is no longer functioning correctly. If this happens, try installing another piece of software onto your computer (like an antivirus program) before restarting it so you can play again when all is said and done.

If you’re experiencing a Sims 4 video card crash, it means your video card has crashed and is no longer functioning correctly. Many things can cause this, but the most common are hardware issues with your computer or laptop’s processor (or CPU).
The first step in determining if your CPU is causing these issues is to determine which CPU model you own. If this information needs to be listed on the bottom panel of your laptop’s case, look for another model number near the middle or at the back, where all sorts of other information about how it works will be located. Once you’ve found out what kind of processor it is and what manufacturer made it (if necessary), we’ll try some troubleshooting steps before calling up customer service representatives who may be able to help figure out exactly what went wrong!
You can fix this yourself by restarting your computer.
Restarting your computer is a quick and easy way to fix the problem, but there are better solutions than restarting your computer. Some hardware problems can’t be fixed by continuing, so we recommend sending your laptop to a professional for repair.
If you’re unable to restart without causing further damage or issues, then there are two other options:
Or you can contact your video card manufacturer for further troubleshooting advice.
If your video card is broken, you can contact the manufacturer of your video card to get help. They will replace it for free if it’s broken (or give you a new one). If there’s no problem with the card itself and it’s just not working correctly, they may have some troubleshooting tips for fixing it.
Restarting may not fix it, though — if this has happened before, you will need to contact your video card manufacturer regarding a replacement card or new parts.

If you can’t play the game properly, contact the video card company that made your video card so they can help you with support.
If you can’t play the game properly, contact the video card company that made your video card so they can help you with support. They may have a replacement or repair program for your video card. The company will know how to troubleshoot and identify the problem. Still, it’s best if they’re able to replace parts independently rather than sending out an engineer from over 100 miles away.
I thought it was just a bug, but I also reported it to EA. The issue is still being worked on, and we’re getting close to a fix for this. The next patch will address these issues – once we can recreate them in an actual build (which will be tomorrow). –TheSims4CommunityTeam
