Hey There! I hope you can help me. Ive just gone out and got sims 2 and downloaded it and everything, but then when I go to start it I get this message. "Failed to find any directx 9.0c compatible graphics adaptors in this system. Make sure you have direct x 9.0c compatible graphics adaptor and you have installed the latest drivers provided by your manufacturer." I have installed directx 9.0c and all of that but it still wont work and I have no idea what a graphic adaptor is... Heeelp. Edit: Removed pink colour in order to make your thread easier to read.
