    Direct x 9.0c should be on the Install disc for the sims 2 if it needs it. I think that you will also need a compatible video card, so it depends on if yours is suitable or not. Do you know what video card you have in your PC?

    Go to...

    start - programs - accessories - system tools - system information

    a box should appear, click on the + next to were it says components and then click on display on the drop down menu, first line should say name. and whatever is next to that is your video card..

    voila.
