I know you will probably have heard this complaint before, but I should like some information, based on the following info.

I've installed The Sims 2. Everything is fine until I get the following message on load-up: DirectX 9.0 compatible graphics adapter, etc.

So I download DirectX 9.0 and check that my computer has indeed been updated. It has. Yet, the game doesn't work. So I check my graphics adapter which is: NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT. I then look that up and apparently it is compatible with DirectX 9.0 but still, the game doesn't work.

Can anyone help make sense of this?

Hi Albur Lily and welcome to G2G!

Make sure you uninstall the existing drivers via add/remove programs before installing the new ones.
