Make sure that your system is on hardware compatibilty list ( enough Ram, acceptible OS, etc.) I would suspect the video card as a problem farther down the list. It will likely function to some extent with any card but possibly require and upgraded card for adequate performance

The specs for your system's motherboard say it has an 8X AGP slot. Here's a page at Newegg.com (just as an example...I do lots of business with them, but you can search for other suppliers) that lists all the cards they sell with resolutions up to 2048X1536. Once you have a list of models and chipsets, you can compare and pick whichever best suits your needs.
This issue occurs if the video card installed in the Computer doesn't meet the video requirements to play the game. You can visit the Computer's manufacturer website to check for any updated driver for the video card installed in the Computer.

Then Click where it says : "Find out if you can run that game on your PC"
Look in the drop down list and select The Sims 2 Double Deluxe PC game. Then Click on the "Can You Run it" Button.
It wiil then Scan your System & Build a detailed profile of Hardware & Software installed, and will inform you of what software or hardware is/is not compatable with the game you want to play.
I have a Pentium 4 3ghz Processor, 1GB Ram, Direct X 9.0c, Win XP SP3 installed & after running a test to see if my Machine would handle The Sims 2 Double Deluxe, it passed on all areas except Video Card. & This is what it informed me :

You Have: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family (Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset)
Video Card Features - Minimum attributes of your Video Card
Video RAM: Required - 32 MB , You have - 128 MB Video Card 3D Acceleration: Required - Yes , You have - Yes Video HW Transform & Lighting: Required - Yes , You have - No
yes your computer will accept this video card. i have the same computer as a backup. in fact, if you had the money to do so you could upgrade this to a far better video card without worrying about the power supply.
how good is the sound card and video card if they are old and not up to spec on the game it will not install check the specs on the game and check your sound and video card make sure there up to running the game if not then it will not run
