    Hi all

    When I load up Sims 2 on my 2010 13" MBP with GeForce 320M graphics, I get an error saying 'Failed to find any DirextX 9.0c compatible graphics adaptors in this system!' nVidia drivers are already installed for the graphics card and are listed as being version 196.82 in the nVidia Control Panel. I've checked the nVidia website and this graphics card isn't even listed nevermind being able to download the latest drivers!

    Can anyone tell me what the problem is and how to fix it?

    Many thanks

    I'm using Windows 7, and the game will run with the -w switch in the target, which forces the game to run in windowed mode. It won't start in full screen mode. I think it must be a problem with the 320M driver.
