  1. IGNORE! It's been solved.

    My computer is kind of old but has worked perfectly fine with Sims 2 until I reformatted it the night before last. Everything works fine at least until I checked the DirectX Diagnostic test.
    NOTE: Sims 2 has worked perfectly fine on my computer before. I had to reformat my computer and uninstall sims 2 because I downloaded a bad Custom Content that messed it up. It should work because I know I have suitable system requirements. And I also noticed my stdole.tlb file was missing... if that helps with my situation..?
    My Computer information:
    Microsoft Windows XP Professional
    version 2002
    service pack 3
    Intel(R) Pentium(R)
    3 CPU
    3.00GHz 2.99GHz, 504MB of RAM

    Adapter type: Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller
    Adapter Info: Chip Type Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller, DAC Type Internal, Memory Size 96 MB, Adapter String Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller, Bios Information: Intel Video BIOS

    Any other info needed?
    EDIT: I had to reformat it again because there was an error, so now everything works fine, but all features are not available.
    PLEASE HELP. <3

    if you need anymore information let me know, just please help me. <3
