Are you running with onboard graphics?

If so, it is telling you to go and buy a video card that meets the minimum requirements that are printed on the box.

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Win7 Ult 64-bit - Func MS3 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard

Well, i've heard that you can't run The Sims 2 using just normal DirectX 9.00. You'll have to upgrade your version to DirectX 9.00c. Also, you'll need a good, modern graphics card to run the game properly. Cheap onboard graphics won't do. If it doesn't meet the minimum system requirements, you'll either have to upgrade or buy a computer.

Anyway, good luck with your game!
Sometimes, it feels as though my life is just a never-ending circle of pain and misery. Not to mention sadness, worthlessness, and humiliation. But I can only cry inside. Deep behind my happy smile and bright personality is a sad and lonely person, a mere figment of my former self. Someday, all this pain will be over. I will drop down and die. At other times I ask myself, \"If only this would happen right now\".
