We can move my desktop downstairs or use a USB. My laptop quit charging two days ago, or I would be using it but no internet where it is sitting right now.
I've had these games for years, so I should mention that the disc is scratched but I have no problem downloading/installing. Took a minute to type all info up there, I am desperate haha. I have nothing to do x.x And I am dying to be creative and build! I have the Sims seasons expansion as well, and the walls as well ground flashed red. I've experienced that before but this time I just couldn't handle it and deleted it.
It also feels nice to be commenting on a forum and stating what is exactly my issues, rather than reading up on others. Any advice and help is much appreciated and I thank you.
Thanks for typing up your config-log.txt.
I'm concerned that your graphics device is "Windows Basic Render Driver" - this is not a typical Graphics card, and anything that's not Intel/NVidia/Radeon has severe problems working with Sims 2.
Do you have another Graphics card on the PC where you're running your game?
The graphics card is not recognised for Sims 2, and therefore will not work.
The Windows Basic Render is not the graphics card - it is the default microsoft graphics when the graphics card is not recognised. It is not good enough to do any graphics.
You'll need to run me a DXDiag to see exactly what's going on, on your machine. Will your boyfriend be able to help you with that?
I'm going to need you to load that up - I hope you have internet access on your machine now?
