directX 9.0 and sims 2 prob.
I recently had to wipe my computer clean and start from scratch. Upgraded to windows 7. I reinstalled the sims2 and all of the expansions last night just fine but the game won't launch. Message appears saying "Failed to find any DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapters in this system! Please make sure you have a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The application will now terminate."
So, i installed directX but it still says the same thing. I've tried numerous things to fix this. I've checked the directX settings and all three (directdraw acc., direct3d acc., AGP texture acc.) are not available. I'm pretty sure they are supposed to be enabled. Why wouldn't it be available? I don't understand this. I dont know much about computers.. rarely anything really. It worked fine with windows XP and i didn't have to install directX before. Could anyone help in simple terms? Much appreciated.
