That message would appear if your card is unfortunately
not one of the cards supported by the SIMS 2 game.

For the list of graphic cards supported by SIMS 2:
http://thesims2.ea.com/help/detail.php?help_id=21

If you know of others who have an unsupported chipset like the Intel
and got it to work with the game, you might want to check with them..
