I used to have the NVIDIA Geforce 5200 128 mb video card and it worked fine with running the game the Sims2, but I wanted a better video card so I could see better graphics. Well, the new card is supported by the game but I am having a lot of problems with it. For instance, after a few minutes of playing, the graphics become distorted with screen kind of flickering back and forth and the icons and pictures of my sims overlapping each other. I can save the game and exit but this always happens no matter what. I tried reinstalling my game and this happens even on a clean game, no downloads and a clean install. This leads me to believe it is a graphics card problem.
At first I thought it was a drivers problem so I tried about every driver that was compatible with my card but I still continued to experience these problems. So someone sent me a link to this forum and I thought I would post my problem and see if anyone had any ideas what I could do to get my game to play. I have also tried turning my hyperthreading off but that had no effect either.
I would really appreciate any help anyone could give me. Also if this post is in the wrong place, I apoligize.
Thanks in advance for any help!
