Come on guys! I REALLY need some assistance here! Any suggestion - no matter how vague - would help me out with this predicament! Let's just look at the situation: Laptop never has display issue until I install The Sims 3. I play The Sims 3 on medium/high settings. For some reason, the game runs for a few minutes and then decides to quit. Why does it not fail when the game begins? Could it be an over-heating issue? Perhaps something is overloading. Yes, there is some food for thought.
