Hi!
I'm new to the whole computer thing, and recently I obtained a computer to play the Sims 2.
I found that my game restarted frequently, and it was rather annoying, so I went about to fix it.
I'm not actually sure where or when, but I read on a forum that I had to "Clean my drivers" and I continued to download a driver cleaning program called "Driver cleaner pro".
I cleaned my drivers and now my computer has, no internet, cannot run any games and system restore won't work...
I'd appreciate any help, thanks

My computer:
AMD Athlon™ 64X2 dual
Core processor 4200+
2.21GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM
Physical address extension

Find out what drivers you need (such as if it is a dell, go to dell.com on another computer) and re-download the drivers. Put em on a flash drive or cd, and then install them to your pc.

Open Device Manager and expand all the +'s. Anything that has a yellow exclamation point by it still needs a driver

If it's onboard video, you can find it at the computer mfg's website or the maker of the motherboard's site. If it's a stand alone card the Nvidia site should have the card's driver
