I know there are a lot of posts about this but I thought I'd ask again in hope that I'd get a quick answer. I'm having problems with Sims2. I have installed it and when i run DXDIAG it says I have directx 9.0c but when I run the game the message pops up saying something about Directx 9.0c adapter not being right or something along those lines. Heres my computer information: operating system: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Language: English System Manufacturer: Compaq Presario 05 System Model: DA200A-ABA 6300US NA850 BIOS: Award Medallion BIOS v6.0 ProcessorL Intel(R) Celeron(TM)CPU 1400MHz, ~1.4GHz Memory: 126MB RAM Page file: 136MB used, 171MB available DirextX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904) -------------------------- Device Information: Name: Intel(R) 82810E Graphics controller Manufacturer: Intel Corporation Chip Type: Intel(R) DAC Type: Internal Approx.
