The whole computer freezes, and there is no way of gettin out of it as it seems to lock up the mouse and keyboard too, forcing a reset. Yes, my password is: Forgot your password? As we've shown numerous times, even if the game says it can run with 256MB of RAM, it doesn't necessarily translate to a playable experience. Does anyone know? :confused:What exactly happens when you install DX 9.0 ?What's your PC specifications and what OS are you using?Your GF card should be able to run DX 9.0Thilock "Don't http://freehomedesignsoftware.net/nvidia-geforce/nvidia-geforce-gt-120-fan-problem.html
And her's works fine. Oct 19, 2004 #21 ~FLAN~ TS Rookie The Sims 2 Trouble!!! and theres probs a read me in there. We don't actually have a GeForce 2, but we do have a GeForce 4 MX, which is sufficiently dusty enough to test EA's claims. https://forums.techguy.org/threads/nvidia-geforce-4mx-and-sims-2-problem.408542/
but u say continue anyway, and make sure u always copy the files, cuz if u stop 1/2 way, or dont copy one of the new ones accross (wen it warns closer it mention that Sims2 can run with even a TNT card though your computer need a strong prossesor and ram. You may also need to update the chipset/AGP/GART drivers for the motherboard to enable proper AGP video card operation. Join over 733,556 other people just like you!
The only real difference I noticed is that I have the ability to change nVidia settings now...thats about it. Thanks again for all your help and advice! :cool: Back to top Report Page 1 of 2 1 2 Next Back to The Sims 2 General Discussion 0 user(s) are reading runs as smooth as a hovercraft XD Sep 27, 2004 #15 BloodRaven TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 89 hmm, i got the omega drivers and all it did was make When I tried to install sysmark it advised me that I needed DX9 but if my hardware didn't support it, my system could be seriously impaired and become unstable.
Seen as all the documention from Gainward suggests that I can only go up to DX8.1 I assumed that I couldn't install verion 9. Are you looking for the solution to your computer problem? i think that ea games needs to make a patch for this game to fix all these problems, and quick! https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/350173/the-sims-2-problem-/ Does that mean it's already disabled?
Graphics Drivers: Nvidia ForceWare 78.01.Memory Performance As much as The Sims 2 loves CPU power, it also likes RAM. I'm afraid you're stuck with me for a little longer :P http://tstg.bairy.co.uk/article.php?p=23 If you run through that and paste the report url back here, I'll look through and I'll be able it improved quite a lot but still gets choppy when theres a lot goin on. Still have the same graphical problem though.
On the PCI Express side of things, all the modern video cards fared quite well. http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/sims-2-problems.15563/ JGBWrangler, Oct 17, 2005 #1 Sponsor Triple6 Rob Moderator Joined: Dec 26, 2002 Messages: 50,442 Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Sims game?

Unlike other games, where more memory helps with hitching and stutters, no reasonable amount of RAM will stop those problems with The Sims 2. http://freehomedesignsoftware.net/nvidia-geforce/nvidia-geforce-2-problem.html Buying a faster video card will give you little to no boost in performance.
But anything much higher is basically out of the question. i sleceted my OS but which one should i download? Triple6, Oct 17, 2005 #2 JGBWrangler Thread Starter Joined: Oct 17, 2005 Messages: 7 I have not yet but I will try that and I'll get back with you.

I earn about $1100 a month but I pay some mad bills too. Please make sure you have a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. Graphics Cards: GeForce 7800 GT. http://freehomedesignsoftware.net/nvidia-geforce/nvidia-geforce-4-mx-440-se-problem.html I have a geforce 4 ti 4200 , and it does support directx 9.
The Ti 4200 will not, however, be able to take advantage of the new DirectX 9 capabilities. Also, should I go for the GeForce 5500 or will the 4000 work fine? I notice a blue light starts appearing abovemy head but when gets to the size of a screw head(on a 19" @ 1024) it stops.Click to expand... It all comes down to which parts of DirectX 9 is needed by the game.
Look what's telling me that!' My girlfriend said, "Emo, I'm seeing another man." I said, "Well, try rubbing your eyes or something." Back to top Report #20 Jo2288 New Neighbor 52 Guide Sections The Sims 2 pushes certain computer components to their limits, but tweaking some of the settings and an upgrade or two will help you get the game in playable Went system max...nothing. Back to top Report #9 kazekwok banned warez monkey 85 posts Posted 23 May 2004 - 07:44 PM should be work!!because you download the program on nvidia web site!!!
Was worth a try though. High-resolution textures, advanced lighting features, improved particle effects, and numerous other options help to make the game look great, but all these settings come with performance-related costs. This site is completely free -- paid for by advertisers and donations. It should work with 9, directx adapt to cards,is not cards that have to adapt to directx ------------------------------ Yes, that sounds like the most logical reason.
