Hello, i've just had windows 7 put on my laptop. and now it wont let me play the sims 2. what do i do?
I would have thought the game's developers would have made it compatible with W7 by now - have you checked their website and forums? You shouldn't be looking to update or upgrade DirectX 9.0 because W7 comes complete with DX 10. It's more likely to be a question of whether Sims2 is capable of working with that.
As with all things to do with gaming, the afficianados do more than the developers when it comes to tweaks and fixes so I'm sure their fora will show you more than you can find here. There's a specialist set of Games Boards here at Tom's, of course.
