Question about Sis Xabre 400 Ultra, (128 MB) Graphic Card

Direct X compatibility issue with new graphics card

I am getting this error code when I start "SIMS 2 Seasons" expansion pack on windows XP.

"Failed to find any DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapters in this system! Please make sure you have a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The application will now terminate."

I just bought this 3D Graphics card tonight new in the box from a store.

The most I know about it is this:

Pine 3D Phantom XP8200 (agp 8x) xabre 400
it has 128mb ddr memory and tv-out with dvi.

It should be a helluva card but the included disk only had DirectX 8.1 and my computer is running DirectX 9.0c

anyone know if three is an updated driver for this hardware (direct x says i am using this one: sisgrv.dll version 6.13.0010.3050 )

I just want to get my niece's Sims expansion pack up and running.

(yes my motherboard supports 8x AGP in case you were going to ask that)

PLEASE HELP!

thanks...Tom

Sims3 is incompatible


I assume you running it on Windows 7 32-Bit. Now before you trying the tips below, do make sure your computer is compatible and meet the Sims 3 requirement.

The Sims 3 can be run on a PC with Windows XP and Vista, and on a Mac. However, there is no official Windows 7-compatible version. This means that Sims 3 will not install on Windows 7 properly.
To fix this error, you need to run Sims 3 in Compatibility Mode. To do that, simply right-click the Sims 3 icon, select Properties and then select Compatibility. Then check the Run this program in compatibility mode for box and select Windows Vista or Windows XP SP3. The game should work fine.

It may not make any difference, newer games rely on DX10 protocols and your chipset may not be capable. You could buy a new graphics card to fit your motherboard, It will be cheaper than a new computer. And you may be able to make your computer last you a few more years yet.

Hi, I have an "old" Compaq Presario 6000 desktop and just got a new Asus HD monitor. I only have 32MB of graphics and can't fully utilize this beautiful screen. what graphics card is...


Welcome to FixYa!

Regarding this particular model, this has AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) 4X expansion slot for graphics cards, I don't think it is still available in the market, you may try to purchase a good second hand graphics card for this and this is fully compatible with windows XP.
Just ask for AGP 4X compatible cards, available graphics memory will be 64 MB, 128 MB and 256 MB. Hope this helps.

The game is not compatible with your graphics card


Well there is a possible solution but it is a little tiresome.

1) Install VirtualBox
2) Create a new virtual machine
3) Install your Operating System on the New Virtual Machine

This invalidates your license unless you have multiple licenses available to you - but I am sure if this works you will buy another license

4) VirtualBox will emulate a differnt Video Card... although it may still not be compatible and if it is compatible it may not be powerful enough to support the game anyway. -- but you never know and all this does is take a little time and costs you nothing

5) Install your game
6) Cross your fingers....

If this does not work - you will have to purchase a different Video Card - Go for an nVidia card - keep away from ATIs

Please run the ncx2000xp update now or uninstall in the control panel/ software the latest windows hotfix service patch


I suppose you have a counterfeit hardware for an original Ncomputing software built-in. The only solution to that is NOT TO UPDATE YOUR WINDOWS XP SERVICE PACK 2. Once you updated your Windows XP, your PC Station users cannot connect to your SERVER anymore.

If you have done the updates, just UNINSTALL the updates.

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.
