    Hi i just got sims 2 and sims 2 Happy Holiday Stuff, I also have sims 1 and it works fine, but now i got these 2,

    anyways, i installed it and when i go to play it i get this:

    Error: "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 dont have any aftermarket Graphics card, and im not exactly sure how to find out what my graphics card is. But i do know this information about my PC

    Emachine
    2800+ AMD Sempron Processor
    80GB HDD
    256MB DDR SDRAM
    S3UniChrome AGP Slot availiable
    Windows XP

    i found this on the net and i followed it, but it didnt help, if anyone has ne information that would be great.

    you need a video card, because your onboard one doesn't support directx 9.0c
