  1. Hey guys.

    I've recently decided I want to go with my sudden nostalgia and reinstall my Sims 2 games on my old PC. Trouble is, I am getting this error:


    I've done a bit of reading and I guess this is a pretty common problem... though nothing I have tried so far has worked. I have tried to update the DirectX driver, but my computer didn't like it; I think I just downloaded the wrong file.

    According to the Start>Run>dxdiag, my configuration is as follows:


    Computer Make/Model - Dell Inspiron 1501 // Microsoft Windows XP // Version 2002
    Processor/Speed - Processor 3600+, 1.99 GHz
    Memory Amount - 896 MB or RAM
    DirectX - 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)


    Now. Let me mention that these Sims 2 games used to work perfectly on this computer, which means the specs and system requirements were fine.

    I hope I have provided all the needed information... let me know if you need more.

    Thanks to any and all help!

    You don't have any graphics drivers installed. Install this and try again..
