Sims 3 doesn't regonize my graphic card

Post by mfijan on Tue 16 Jul 2013, 16:02

So, i've bought a game pc 4 months ago. And i started playing Sims 3, but he doesn't regonize my graphic card. 
I have tried something that you can find if you type: 'sims 3 too new graphic card' in google (first link), But I don't know what to do by 'open GraphicsRules.sgr file'. 

I do understand what you suppose to do, but I can't find a older version of my graphic card.

I have a: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 

In deviceconfig:
=== Graphics device info ===
Number:          0
Name (driver):   NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti
Name (database): GeForce GTX 660 Ti [Found: 1, Matched: 1]
Vendor:          NVIDIA
Chipset:         Vendor: 10de, Device: 1183, Board: 118310b0, Chipset: 00a1
Driver:          nvd3dum.dll, Version: 9.18.13.2049, GUID: D7B71E3E-52C3-11CF-017B-8E311CC2C435
Driver version:  2049
Monitor:         \\.\DISPLAY1
Texture memory:  4040MB
Vertex program:  3.0
Pixel program:   3.0
Hardware TnL:    1


So i've replace 
card 0x0fd4 "GeForce GTX 660M" 
into 
card 0x1183 "GeForce GTX 660 Ti" 
in the GraphicsCards.sgr


But i don't know what to do next. 


Anyone who does know how to do this?


(sorry for my bad english)

hello,

Are you sure you've got your graphics card installed right?

I had this problem once, and what i did was removing it, (drivers and stuff)
And reinstalling it.

It could be there is a wrong file, or a missing file in your graphics card directory.
