i have win 64 running on my computer.

i try and run Direct x diagnostic.

i click the 64 bit button and it freezes and crashes

when i try again iget

DxDiag has detected that there might have been a problem accessing Direct3D the last time this programme was used. Would you like to bypass Direct3d this time.

As i am looking fir an error with direct x when running sims i want to view the 3d info

That seems like enough of a problem to cause your issue with The Sims. First of all, I would try updating to the latest version of DirectX. If this doesn't fix your issue, go ahead and download the latest chipset/INF drivers for your board, and then proceed to download the latest drivers for your graphics card. Also, if you could post the full results of your DXDiag here, it may help in resolving this issue.
