    My God, I really do get sick of all the Sims 2 problems people post on TS... its always the exact same problem with the lack of DX9.0c too... Read that post, do exactly what it says, and tell us what happens. You probably need a new videocard.

    OK then here's a different Question. Why is that when I start The Sims 2 I can only hear sound and it doesn't display anything other that the bar at the bottom of the page and then suddenly crashes?
