Okay so my problem is, I am trying desperately to play sims 2, I do not have internet at home and I have just about NOTHING to do, so I bought Sims 2 and it keeps telling me that "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 have Downloaded and installed DirectX 9.0 c a few times now, and I still get this message. ( I am at my mothers with my tower, trying to fix this!) These are my specs.
