I just purchased a new laptop that is running windows 10. I just downloaded the sims 2 UC from origin and when I tried to play it a message pops up that says... Failed to find any Directx 9.0c compatible graphics adapters in this system. etc...
I really don't know much about computers and am having such a hard time getting this to work...

any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
