the first one said the following:
"Display Driver Stopped Responding- The ialmrnt5 display driver has stopped working normally. Save your work and reboot the system to restore full display functionality...blah blah blah...."
the second said:
"the graphics adapter in this system experienced an internal error. please contact your graphics adapter manufacter for technical support. the application will now terminate."
then the colors went wacky (they reminded me of safe-mode). even after i restarted the computer, the graphics still looked wierd, and i had to manually change the colors and screen resolution back to normal (using display properties on desktop).
my computer uses
intel®82845G/Gl/GE/PE/GV graphics controller, and considering the computer is fairly old, is the graphics card just going out? i've played sims 2 in the past with minor graphical problems, but never anything too severe.
~thanks in advance
