Help! My computer crashes with the blue screen when I launch SCS

I went out yesterday and bought Sim City Societies and installed it. Every time I try to launch the game I get the blue screen of death and then my computer restarts. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? I have an Acer Aspire 3680 laptop with Vista operating system. I just got the computer November of 2007. I have 10 gigs of space left on my hard drive. Also I did check my event log and it said "The Parallel port driver service failed to start due to the following error: The service can not be started, either because it is disabled or because it hs no enabled devices associated with it" I have no idea what this has to do with starting up Sim City Societies

If it also makes you feel any better.. it's crap.

Maybe your computer just knows better

I have heard that SimCity Societies is a very buggy game that crashes a lot.

Sadly, I can't help you because I refuse to buy the game.

SIM CITY SOCIETIES NOW PLAYS! I updated my video drivers! I was begining to regret ever getting the game. Its very cool. I like how you can actually put your own buildings down instead of the zoning. I do wish I could zoom out more though.
