ok, I really dont get this... I installed Sims 2 Double Deluxe on my computer and it downloaded just fine till I clicked the "play" button. It gave me a bluescreen and a note saying: "Failed to find any DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics in this system! Please make sure you have a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacture. The application will now close." So I downloaded DirectX, only to find out I already had it on my computer...So I figured there's something wrong with the device I have.. Here's some info on my computer and my video device: Computer: Manufacturer: HP Pavillon 061 Model: PC028A-ABA A620N Processor: AMD Athlon(tm)XP 3200+, MMX, 3DNow,~2.2GHz Memory: 512MB RAM DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904) Device: Name: ALL-IN-WONDER 9600 SERIES Memory:128.0MB I hope this helps, and please, PLEASE help me someone!!! I'm going crazy, I just want this stupid game to work already!!
