I just bought The Sims 3 too and I keep getting a message saying "Device 0 cannot run this title. Your video card does not appear to support at least shader model 2. Please upgrade your card."
I have a:
-Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller
-Intel(R) Celeron (R) CPU 2.66GHz 2.67GHz, 248 MB of RAM
Can anyone please help me?!
