Help Please! So I got The Sims 2 last night for Christmas from my boyfriend. I've been trying to play it and I keep getting that DirectX 9.0c graphics adapter message and I read every thread I could find and followed every little instruction but nothing worked. I also tested my DirectX and everything works. Here are my specs: System Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) System Manufacturer: Dell Computer Corporation System Model: DIM2100 Processor: Intel Celeron ~1.1GHz Memory: 126MB RAM Page File: 184MB used, 119MB available DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904) Display Device Name: Intel(R) 82810 Graphics Controller Manufacturer: Intel Corporation Chip Type: Intel(R) 82810 DAC Type: Internal Approx. Total Memory: 32.0MB Current Display Mode: 1024 x 768 (24 bit) (60Hz) Drivers Main Driver: i81xdnt5.dll Version: 6.13.0001.3196 Date: 7\23\2002 09.01.38 WHQL Logo'd: Yes Mini VDD: i81xnt5.sys VDD: n\a DDI Version: 8 Yeah so I think that's all you'd need to know. Please help.
