    When I try to run Sims 2 I get this error message:
    "Failed to find any DirectX9.0c compatible graphics adapters in this system! Please make sure you have a directX 9.0c compatible graphics adapterr and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer."

    I have updated my graphics driver, as well as using dxdiag to find that I have directX version directX 11.
    I have also checked that all the directX features are enabled on dxdiag. I don't know what else to do or why it won't work as I know someone with a similar laptop who runs Sims 2 perfectly fine. Could you please help me out?

    Welcome to TSG! (y)

    Try the official patch for the game?
    have you tried running in compatibility mode as admin?
