Slow framerate when playing Sims 2

  1. Hey Guys, new here.
    Hoping to stay with you here on Techspot and be an active member :)

    Anyways, here's my question, also my first post :D

    Whenever i play The Sims 2, it has a slow frame rate or lets say, it's so slow, specially, when your on build mode,

    Also sometimes it shows up, "nvlddmkm Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Successfully Recovered"

    I have a:
    Windows Vista SP1
    nVidia GeForce FX 5500 256mb DDR 128bit
    Intel D Dual Core 3.0Ghz
    1 GB Ram

    Is the problem on the processor or should i downgrade my OS to XP?

    Hmm, i dont think so. I tried installing the Setup CD that comes with the Graphic Card, but when i try to install the vista 32-bit driver, it says it cannot find a driver which supports the installer.

    So i used the 96.85 version, which worked.

    Kinda pretty weird.
