Hello all, I am completely unfamiliar with anything to do with pcs sadly and in desperation have logged on here to try to get some help this evening.
After many many weeks of staring at my brand new sims 3 i finally load it to find i dont have the video graphics card spec...and worse still after trying to read my way through self help pages i don thtink i even have a graphics card at all!! lol Is this possible? I play other games. Oh dear even i'm aware how dim i'm sounding : )

Ok when i go into dxdiag and look at display details i have a lot of N/A under device and nothing i can enable on the acceleration bit either. Please someone tell me what i need to be looking at and the ultimate question....can i ever play my sims without spending anymore bloody money?
Thank you in advance x

If you want help, you're going to have to post your system specs or at least the make/model of your system.

If u don't have video card then u have onboard video or IGP(integrated graphics processor). Onboard video isn't good for games but it can run games.
I think u have a lot of N/A because u didn't load the video driver. If u want to enjoy the sims 3 u need a video card(spend some cash).
