sims 2 crashes on loading screen
#1 07-05-2023 
my old computer died and i had to switch over to a new hardrive with a new graphics card, i havent even loaded up mods or anything yet. i just installed the dreaded ea app and redownloaded the sims2 ultimate collection. I downloaded george and graphics rules from a previous post of mine however without george the game crashes during the first loading screen, with george it crashes upon loading the neighborhood.

im running windows 10

I'm guessing it has something to do with the graphics card but i don't really remember how to update those. i tried downloading graphics rules maker but i don't think i really know what I'm doing. trying to save graphics rules from there and loading up the game tells me it cant find any drives that work with direct x or something like that. going into the video cards the one i have doesn't seem to be there but i don't know how to make it get recognized? can someone help? this is getting ridiculous.
