When I try to play the Sims 2, this pops up after the game loads the city I want.

I know it has something to do with drivers. I did some research but I couldn't find any links for anything.

Here's the error report. http://wer.microsoft.com/responses/Respons...0c-9a5d55c22a63

I don't know if this is relavent, but this is my desktop after the error

And this is before the error/ after I reboot

Information
OS: Windows XP Home Edition
I think I'm running a 32-bit, but I'm not sure.
I have Service Pack 2

I don't know what other information is needed.

Did you follow the suggestion supplied by MS?

System manufacturer and model?

Go Start/Run...type msinfo32 and hit Enter.

What data is reflected for System Manufacturer and System Model?

Scroll down to Components/Display. Same question for Name, Adapter Type, and Adapter Description.

Sorry about my incompetence, I'm not a very techy person. Here's the complete lists of stuff.

You did well with the graphics, thanks :thumbsup:.

I don't game, so don't take any of this as coming from someone who really knows :flowers:.

The message from Microsoft says...that your onboard video chip isn't sufficiently powerful enough to handle game requirements.

Game requirements call for DirectX version 9 and you probably have an earlier version.

DirectX version 9 has been out for awhile...if I were you, I'd try installing DirectX 9 from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en.

FWIW: A system with XP on it that's not running DirectX 9...is probably missing a number of updates. A quick glance indicates XP SP2, which means that you probably short about 80 critical updates to help protect your system from known security vulnerabilities. I would say that a visit to Windows Update would be of some use.

Thank you for the link ^.^

The weird thing is that it only started giving me that message today. The game had been working fine beforehand (like about 2 weeks our something.)

Hopefully this will help. Thank you very much!

edit: It didn't work. However, I got a screenshot of the error message. Maybe this can help.

(the blue screen thing isn't part of the game. It's the graphics messing up)

edit edit: Now that I think about it, it may not have worked because I didn't restart the computer after installing the driver. I don't know if that has to do with anything though.

Your video card is either dying or you need to update the drivers. http://www.intel.com
