This sounds stupid but how do I find out what sort of video card I have? I say this because I just installed 'The Sims 2' and it went fine before I tried to start the game up. It said that it could not start because Direct 9.0c could not find a compatible video/graphics card. How do I found out what sort of video and sound card I have?

Yay. Now I have no sound either.

I really don't know why, but now my computer makes no sound at all. My speakers work, because if I turn them right up you can hear the static, and if I minimize a window there is a dip in the static - so the computer is connected to the speakers.

I will be able to keep this from my parents for a while, but one day my dad will want to listen to some music......then he finds out. Please help! Do you need my Hijack This? If so, I will post it in a third reply.

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
