I bet you all are sick of this but it's bugging me

I installed The Sims 2 and when I try to play it, the 'Failed t
enumerate any Directx 9 compatible graphics adapters in this system!
(I'm sure you know the rest of it.

And I have checked my laptop through everything!
I have directx 10, and I have a Nvidia Geforce 9700 GTS video chip. (
think that's the chip.) And everything is enabled
It has plenty of memory and RAM

I just can't get my game working

If you poke around a bit in the Microsoft Vista support sites, you will find
an update that installs DX 9. (c) on Vista.
Hopefully, this will solve your problem.

Don't feel too bad, I just went through an OpenGL issue with XP and Nvidia
drivers that was similar. I ended up installing part of Nvidia's
development/monitoring software, which seems to have fixed some registry
entries, then the latest updated drivers. That cured the problem. (The last
Nvidia driver updates for vista resulted in a slight speed increase on my HP
Laptop as well.

Look for DXWebSetup.exe at microsoft.com/directx or gamesforwindows.com

run it to update your DirectX files (1 through 10), should be able to play
after installation finishes.
