I just recently installed The Sims 2 on my computer. I have the base game, Family Fun Stuff, and the Pets expansion pack. (Bear with me...this IS an audio question!)
Anyway, I've been having issues with the game freezing during gameplay. I tried deleting all my custom content, thinking I had something buggy...didn't help. Tried turning down all my graphics options....didn't help. Defragged my hard drive...nope. Played the game offline and used Task Manager to end all my non-essential processes...still no go.
Then someone suggested that I try playing the game in "no-sound" mode.
Lo and behold...it worked. No freezing.
But I don't really relish the idea of playing with no sound at all. So I want to update my audio drivers, but I've got no idea where to get the updated driver. I'm hoping someone here can help me.
According to DxDiag, this is the info for my sound card:
Name: SigmaTel Audio
Device ID: HDAUDIO\FUNC_01VEN_8384DEV7690SUBSYS_1
Manufacturer ID: 1
Product ID: 100
Version: 5.10.4823.0000 (English)
Date: 11/16/2005 15:36:00
WHQL Logo'd: Yes
I cannot find an updated version of the driver for the life of me. Is there one, and if so, where in the world do I find it?!
Thanks for any help.
