Downloading a commercial software product, such as Sims 2 is illegal. So, I suggest that you purchase an original copy of Sims 2 from a vendor.

Regarding the issue with your graphics adapter, kindly let me know the make and model of the graphics adapter. I can then suggest a few websites that allow you to download the drivers.

(Note: Graphics adapters are part of a computer's hardware. You cannot download them! I am assuming here that you meant graphics drivers, and not adapters.)

Thank you!! :)

SOURCE: hi i've just had my computer ugraded to windows 7

The error message is correct. Windows 7 is not backwards compatible with certain graphics adapters requiring DirectX support higher than 8.0.
You should attempt first to install the proper driver for your graphics adapter from the manufacturer, and if that does not fix the issue, you should either install a new graphics adapter, or revert back to Windows XP.

When playing graphics related PC games, such as SIMS 2,Fable or online games, such as Wizard 101; the games freeze as soon as any key is hit or the mouse is moved.


try downloading the most recent driver software for your video card keyboard mouse usb and all your other drivers to do this the easy way just right click on my computer and go to properties then go to hardware then device manager and go through your devices network card display adapters sound and video and game controllers and hit update one by one

WHEN I LOAD SIMS IT TELLS ME THAT IT CANT FIND THE DIRECTX9.0C COMPATIBLE GRAPHICS ADAPTER. WHERE CAN I DOWNLOAD ONE?


Graphics adapter its hardware device rather then software. You check whether all driver installed for you video card and DirectX9.0 installed too. It might that you poses old video on board card which doesnt support directX 9

The graphic organizer won't work it says i need DirectX 9.0c


First thing you do is check your system requierments,(should be located on the back of your CD case, or somewhere in your manuel, probebly under the title "System Requirments") it will probebly say something like "complete Direct-X compatible graphics adapter requiered". You then go to Start Menu-->Run (type in "dxdiag" (without quotes)) and see if you have the correct graphics card, and or graphics adapter.

If you do have the correct system requierments repost your problem saying you have the correct system requierments but you still get the following message: "Failed to find any Directx9.0 compatible graphics adapters in this system! Please make sure you have a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provide by the manufactuer. The application will now terminate."

If you do not have the correct system requierments, you cannot play the game on that computer.

Hope this helps.

I cant biuld a house in THE SIMS 2 (PC GAME)


This could just be an incomplete game, which i assume you downloaded from a torrent. Best thing to do is uninstall then reinstall to see if it works. Otherwise you could try to download the game again from a different torrent.

Direct X compatibility issue with new graphics card


Hi tom2badcat, the SIMS game is very picky when it comes to graphics cards. If you look on the SIMS box you'll find their recomended graphics card list. The video card you bought is a low end 8x AGP card. You can try downloading & installing directx 9.0c from microsoft. Click on this link;
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=9226a611-62fe-4f61-aba1-914185249413&displaylang=en
If directx 9.0c still fails to install the graphics card is at fault & you should return it. Listed below is a link. The link provides a couple 8x AGP graphics cards that will run both directx 9.0c & the SIMS expansion pack 2. (The graphic cards shown all use faster memory).
XFX cards carry a lifetime warranty. (No# Choice)

Below is a whole list of 8x AGP cards.

Brief Description:
November 2008
The Microsoft DirectX® End-User Runtime provides updates to 9.0c and previous versions of DirectX — the core Windows® technology that drives high-speed multimedia and games on the PC.

It can be the game installation corrupted, does not look like video adapter problem.
Backup all the files from the game, so that you can recover all old savings, then proceed reinstalling the game, if asked chose to keep saved files.
Do a backup first.
