Sims 3 on a Dell XPS M140

\015 I DO have a M140 it just wasn't listed on the product list.Im trying to run Sims 3 on my system..after the download I got an error message about the video card but the game played for almost 3 hours...but then it crashed. I uninstalled it and haven't tried to load it again yet...just hoping there's something i can do to allow the game to run.Also totally unrelated: at start up it take awhile for the computer to load..like 3-5 minutes just to get to my desktop screen. Once it loads it runs fine though and its only been doing this for a few weeks now it was never like this before. would a system restore work?\015
