Problems with Sims 2 and DirectX 9.0

  1. I've seen this thread on here a million times, but my problem is kind of different. I've installed The Sims 2 Double Deluxe on my laptop, but I get 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've seen responses to this common problem, but none work for my computer. I went to Start, then Run, and DxDiag. This is the extent of my DirectX:

    Name:
    Manufacturer: n/a
    Chip Type: n/a
    DAC Type: n/a
    Approx. Total Memory: n/a
    Current Display Mode: 1024 x 768 (32 bit) (1hz)
    Monitor:

    Yes, those spaces are blank on this page. How can I find out what I actually have, and how can I fix this so I can play some Sims?? :(
