    :confused: I recently installed the Sims 2 on my computer (Windows 98). It keeps coming up with this message:

    "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 lastest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The application will now terminate."

    An installation for DirectX 9.0 came on the disc, which I installed but hasn't helped. Do I need to install a driver? If so, which one and where from? What else could I do? Thanks in advance. (Sorry if someone else has posted about this).

    You cannot play the Sims 2 on your computer. You must have atleast a 32bit video card. You can check your bit by right clicking your desktop, clicking properties, and then clicking the settings tab. You will see your screen resolution, and on the other side is your videocard colors.

    I changed the videocard colour, but it still comes up with the message. Do I need to download a new sound and card driver?

    sorry I misread that...

    caitlin, It looks like your system may not be meeting the requirements of the game. One way for us to find out is for you to go to Start > Run > type dxdiag. Then when the program pops up and finishes loading, click Save All Information. It should come up with a dialogue box for you to save your log. Save it in a easy place to remember, like the desktop. When you have done saving, close the program and open the log. Copy everything and paste it here for us to look at.

    Well looks like the graphics card is incompatible, since it's only 8Mb. Click here for your drivers for the video card. I don't know if it will work but it's worth a shot.

    One other thing to note is that your CPU is below minimum requirements so if it does work, it will most likely go in a snail pace.

    :) like I said this may solve the error message but the memory on the card is so low it may not work at all. Be prepared to invest in a new card... or worse a new machine :eek:

    I downloaded the DirectX, but The Sims won't even start :( - is there anything else I can do or download before a new computer or a new card is necessary?

    I believe that a new computer is in order. Most programs now need minimum of Intel Pentium or AMD CPUs at 1Ghz and a video card with no less than 32Mb of memory. Also I noticed that most games need at least 1Gb of hard drive space (Sims2 needs at least 3.5Gb!) so really you should look at that too. Since you are using Windows 98 128Mb may be suffient but most programs need more memory so you should be looking to have no less than 256Mb of RAM.

    When I get a new computer (if I do :p) then I'll make sure the sims 2 works on it! this computer is pretty old so I'm not surprised it won't play this new version of the sims... thanks for all your help Tidus4Yuna (y)
