  1. I got Sims 2 a long time ago and it was running well the whole time. I got back on it yesterday and it still worked just fine. When I tried to get on it this morning it gave me this error
    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 latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The application will now terminate.
    I have Windows XP
    I have a Nvidia Graphics card, not sure which one and my driver is Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS.
    Please Help.
