Please help me.!

I bought a new sims 3 game just the other day and it installed perfectlly.But about two minutes after the intro of the game the computer screen just goes black and turns off but you can still hear the static in it and the hard drive still stays running.Then i was trying to see if i could fix the problem myself by messing on the computer control panel and now when i click to go on the game it says i cant play because i have to change my video card settings.Im not to good with computers so if you know of a way to solve this please break it down as easy as possible please!

Firstly, make sure your graphics card is pixel shader 2.0 enabled. Secondly, go to There are other people with this suddenly black screen issue. Admittedly I haven't checked to see what the cause was because I'm not having a problem, but you need to have certain programs on your system that aren't listed on the box framenet (something like that) 3.5 as an example.
