    I jus bought the Sims 2 an its aight but it freezes and I must update my video driver
    I'm tryin to update my ATI radeon 9000 video driver
    what I've done so far/able to do ->
    ->Downloaded driver update
    ->Uninstall both the ATI driver and the ATI control panel

    Finally I uninstall ATI radeon 9000 and have to restart my computer

    When I try and run the computer in safe mode (hit F8 on the loading thang) It begins to load but then stops then after about 2-3 seconds a blue screen appears and have to restart to ->best known configuration...

    What operating system version do you have?

    Go here and get the instructions listed under [ALL-IN-WONDER RADEON and RADEON graphics series].

    You may want to update DirectX.

    Be sure you have the right driver .

    Good luck!
