    So I posted about this on the Sims Official Site and no one has a clue or is guessing........I have a laptop with intel graphics and only 3 CCs in-game currently. When I move the camera about it is laggy (or maybe a better term would be sluggish) and now the sound is crackling.

    I would be eternally grateful if someone knew what might be going on and what I can do to make it stop doing these things?

    If you have not tried yet, visit: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Products/laptop
    and download the latest drivers.

    Do a fresh reinstall of the graphics drivers.

    Surprisingly better!! It still is a bit jittery here and there, but very rarely noticeable.......I wish it would go away completely and be smooth, but I guess I'll take the win any way I can get it. Thanks for your help!!

    Awesome :)

    Be sure to update all your graphics when you get a chance. If you're running Windows 10, be sure to update all the patches from windows update too. There were a few performance patches related to running 64 bit Windows.

    LMAO!! Its cool!! I just heard mixed reviews about Windows 10......seems no one cares for it or will say that it is just OK.......so I never really put much stock into getting it.
