There is a little more that you need to do. You haven't supplied what motherboard your using. That is very important, need to know info. So now I have to guess. Update windows. You must have .Net framwork ver2.0. Do not skip other .Netframworks like ver1.0 or 1.1. Go to this link & download DirectX 9.C. : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&displaylang=en
Uninstall any software you installed through Control Panel. If it fail to uninstall. Download and run ATI cat uninstaller. at this link:

Shut down your PC. Remove the PCIE card & reat it.
Enter your BIOS at boot-up. Make sure the Video section is set to PCI-E card. Save & exit. After windows finishes starting up download your lasted drivers & CCC = Catalyst Software Suite
ver7.12 :

How to initialize directx 9 renderer


1. Just install the latest directX 9 @ DirectX 9.0c (Jun 10) download

2. Update your Graphic Cards drivers from the Manufacturers' site.

3. Update your PC/Laptop hardware drivers to the latest versions!

If you have done the above and still cannot cannot use the directx 9 rendering, most probably your graphic card does not support the rendering options.

Hope it helps.

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.

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.

Cant play sims2, message pops up saying i need Directx 9 adapter.


of course we need the specks Taylor- and your graphics card should support directx 9. Unless you have some obscure onboard graphics card or are running win 98 or ur card is really old direct x 9 is supported by cards that were sold even 3-4 years ago.

NOW WHAT YOU CAN TRY IS: If you are on win xp and this funked up message shows up you can try running the gave in compatibility mode for win 2000. right click on the game file go to compatibility tab choose win 2000 in the dropdown apply and okay it. Try and run it again.

Cheers
rate if this does it- if its your low end hardware upgrade coz there is nothing any of us can do for low end hardware

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.

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.
