I was playing the sims2, and when I went to buy something and drag it into the screen, the game froze and the blue screen came up saying there was an error with file ati2dvag. I found out this was something to do with video input to the screen, so I downloaded newer drivers. This didn't work though, and I went on downloading drivers, reading up information, installing programs and doing all sorts (which probably wasn't too intelligent) but nothing has worked.
Now it's even worse, and when I click to play the Sims2 it comes up with an error message 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.'
I tried downloading a DirectX 9.0c CGA, and the newest (I think) drivers from the IBM website, but it didn't do anything.
I think it's something to do with the graphics card, but I have no idea. MovieMaker crashed at one point (repeatedly) aswell, which probably has something to do with it.
My computer is an IBM ThinkPad notebook, running on Windows XP-I'm not sure what info I should post...
