hello,  I hope someone is able to help me with this.  I seem to be getting this error about 15min into playing Sims2 Apartment life expansion.  The cd had securom on it just in case that is vital info.  EA apparently thinks i will pirate the game but whatever. The error is this:
Direct 3D returned an error D3DERR_NOT AVAILABLE! The application will now terminate.what ive done so far was...obviously checked my system requirements, ive updated all drivers, updated my direct x and SDK, ive balanced my graphics card settings and it just seems like nothing will get rid of this error.  When i run dxdiag, the only file with an error is this:d3d9d.dll 9.18.0944.0000 Final Debug dated 7/31/08I made sure the directx options are all set on retail versions and i have looked for this file and found it in my system 32 file but it doesn't quite match...the file is called 9.18.944 without the extra 0 and is dated today.  I am so lost and ive run out of ideas.  If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it.  Oh i seem to crash (get he blue screen of death) in World of Warcraft as well but only after an hour in a zone that is using more blue graphics than any other zone...i think this file is the culprit but im not really sure.thanks so much! k
