    I have a problem with my game where the windows in all of the houses don't let in any light. It seems stupid but it really makes the game hard to play seeing as it's completely dark and i can't really see my sims, etc. I had reinstalled windows on my computer and reinstalled the game and everything a week ago, and since then I've had this problem, but I didn't have it before. I did manually install a driver for my graphics card, meaning I looked for the driver online since I didn't have it on CD anymore. I found a driver for it and installed it, so I'm guessing that the problem could be with that driver, but I still don't know how to fix it. My game doesn't have any other problems though.
    Help?

    Where did you get the driver from? Try getting it straight from Intel's website.
