  1. Hi i'm having the problem with sims 2, i recieve this error message -
    "Failed to find any directx 9.0c compatible graphics adaptors in this system. Make sure you have direct x 9.0c compatible graphics adaptor and you have installed the latest drivers provided by your manufacturer."
    I used to be able to run it on my computer with no problems but it wont work now i have reinstalled it. I downloaded the various driver updates but none of them have worked.

    My computer info:
    Microsoft Windows XP Proffesional (5.1, build 2600)
    Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz (2 CPUs)
    510mb RAM
    DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)

    Display:
    ATI Radeon X300
    128.0 MB

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Make sure XP is fully updated to SP3 and you may even want to update the X300 drivers from ATI's website
