I am trying to install my Sims 2 cd...I had it installed before and it worked fine but then I had a virus and I had to reformat everything and start over. When I installed The Sims 2 it said that "Failed to find any DirectX 9.0 graphics adapter in this system..please make sure you have directx compatible graphics adapter and have iinstalled the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer." So i got DirectX 9.0 and i downloaded drivers and they say NVIDIA cannot find any capatable drivers blah blah with your hardware. I use to have windows 98 and i upgraded it to Windows XP home edition. System Man.- NVIDIA Someone built my computer so I don't know if that makes a difference. My sound also doesn't work...something having to do with the driver. I don't know anything about it but I can follow directions..so any help would be nice.
