Hello nwcarls,

You might also try this on your brand new laptop: http://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=633003

The first post of this thread contains the link to a document that describes how to install a DX9 emulator, aimed to get older dx9 games running again on modern systems. This allowed me to play the game on my system again (windows 10, DX12). It doesn't work in all situations, but it might be worth a try.

Good luck,
