    Default Computer no longer runs games

    Hello! My son keeps getting error messages when he tries to install a game. The message reads:

    Failed to initialize renderer.
    Nixadapterdesc::getdevicecaps()failed

    He says that one day his games failed to run...they would begin loading and quit. He then uninstalled SIMS 3 and attempted to reinstall it when he received the above message.


    Any ideas?

    Win XP Pro sp3; AMD 64 3500+ MMX; 2GB RAM; 2x Nvidia 7800 GTX; 232 GB HD; 596 GB HD; mb ASUS A8N SLI Premium


    Thanks in advance.

    That is usually an error for a game called
    Oblivion:Oblivion - UESPWiki
    Oblivion:Oblivion Support - UESPWiki

    Also,
    Sims can be very troublesome and needs a lot of resources to run properly

    I recommend you go to the Sims forum...the members are experts in trouble shooting Sims

    Thanks. I believe he gets that error for Oblivion as well, in fact I'm sure of it. Unless you have some special information regarding that situation, I will try the SIMS forums.

    Thanks again.
