I have installed The Sims, the latest patches and DirectX 7. When I play Sims it hangs about 5-10 min into the game. I can't use CTRL-ALT-Delete so I have to reset the whole computer and run Scandisk. I have a Celeron 300A with a ELSA Erazor 3 Pro TNT2 AGP graphic-card.
I've tried to upgrade DirectX to 7a but the problem still remains. I've tried both new and older ELSA drivers but it's still the same! Any ideas? Should I re-install DirectX 6 or what??? hen I installed DirectX 7 i discovered a beta version of a driver. I tried to remove it but nothing new!
