  1. Hi,

    I have been trying to work out how to play my sims 2 game. Everytime i go to open the game the sims 2 screen comes up then an message appears stating:

    Failed to find any DirectX 9.0c compatible adapters in this system please make sure you have a direct x 9.0c compatible graphics adapter abd have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. This application will now terminate.

    I have downloaded the latest drivers for direct x 9.0c from the microsoft website and the game still will not work can any body please help me.

    Cheers

    Try updating your video card's driver to the latest version from the video card manufacturer. DirectX will only be as good as the video card driver you installed. You didn't list what computer model or video card you are using, so I can't help you more.
