Direct 3D: Not Available. Please help!

Specs: Windows Vista, 4.00 GB RAM
I have a Vista OS.
I used to play Sims 2 games on my computer until one day I got an error message saying:
"Failed to find any Directx9.0c compatible graphics adapter on this system! Please make sure you have a Directx9.0c compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by that manufacturer.This application will now terminate."
This was weird because I was able to play it for a year. This also happens to a lot of 3D games.

I ran the 'dxdiag' and it said I had Direct Draw enabled, Direct 3D not available, and AGP Texture Acceleration enabled.
I have Directx 11

Also when I try to reinstall directx, it tells me that I already have it so "it is not necessary to install it"
