Hi. First of all, put this into your browser
http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directxdownload.html
after installing the newest directx files your pc may restart. Try running Sims, it should do the trick. You have not written on what system your sims should run. Possibly your graphics card is not strong enough for the game to run and the game knows it. Anyhow, let me know how it turned out after the directx update.

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 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.

It means that your video card isn't powerful enough to run the game. The newest video cards out are DirectX 10.1 or higher. The newer the the game, the more powerful the graphics card has to be to run the game correctly. If you have a laptop then it won't be so easy to upgrade the video card as they are usually integrated into the motherboard. If you have a desktop, then you should be able to upgrade. Just be sure that you order a graphics card that is compatible with your motherboard.

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.

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:

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.

Can't download Sims 2, how do I download graphic adapters?


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!! :)

What is your operating system. ALSO most laptops do not support high graphic games like this (yes the sims is considered high graphics) You need to check minumum requirements on the box. If you have a Vista PC make sure the game is VISTA compatible.... some games even pc compatible sate that they will/may not work with laptops.... unfortunatly you can NOT change the graphic card on a laptop because it is saudered on the motherboard.
