Good afternoon.

I have no idea what else I can do!! I have an Acer aspire, GeForce 840m dedicated graphics, newly fitted SSD hardrive.

I can play every single game I have tried to play, including Sims 4 which runs flawlessly, but Sims 3 always causes either, watchdog violation or video scheduler internal error within 5-10 minutes of playing. Now I have done almost everything imaginable to this laptop-

Clean driver uninstall and re installs (various times)
Clean re-install of windows 10 (worked for 30 minutes then BSOD)
Changed settings on GeForce control panel
Reverted driver to previous version
Installed chipset intel
Spoken with Nvidia customer service agents
Driver updates upon driver updates

I literally have no other things to try. I am so desperate and confused and frustrated.

If someone could help I would be internally grateful

If you have any minidump files then compress and upload the last few for analysis.
