Alright, ive got a Dell Dimension L1000R and i tried installing the sims 2 on it and it said i needed directx 9.0c. so i ended up downloading it and tried playing it again, and it siad the same thing. so im at this website > http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx.. trying to download some new graphics drivers and shit. but im not sure what i need to pick. this comp has windows xp.
So my ? is which one do i need to download in order for this game to work.
P.S. i also have a nvidia graphics laying around. should i install it as well??
There should be a service tag on the computer. You can got to Dell's site and enter that # and it will tell you what hardware is included in that particular unit. You can normally download the driver's from their site.
You may want to check the video card manufacturer's site for the most current driver.
