Graphics Card Not Recognized. [SOLVED]

Post by PersusjCP on Tue 15 Nov 2016, 15:31

Hi,  I have an RX 480 and the game keeps telling me that my graphics card is not recognized and cannot run the game (or the drivers are outdated (but i updated them yesterday))

Any thoughts?

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.
Have you been able to play the game before?
In which way were your drivers updated? 
Have you tried a clean install of your drivers? (completely uninstall your drivers, then use the latest drivers)
Are you by any chance using crossfire/dual graphics?
Perhaps some settings to tweak in your Crimson software?

Sorry for the long wait, I kinda forgot about this post because I was busy with a project.


I have not been able to play the game on this computer, but on my old one I did. That has an old ATI HD 3450.

I just used the automatic Crimson software updater.

I have not tried that, do you have a way that i could try that? I'll look around as well.

I am not using Crossfire as I only have one GPU

Already looked into that, and there isn't anything worthwile.

Maybe you can apply the procedure described here, analogous to The Sims 4:
http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Getting_new_graphics_cards_recognized_by_the_game

The guide is intended for The Sims 3, but maybe it works for The Sims 4 as well. Your "device ID" can be found under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Config.log - and in that file under Graphics device info -> Chipset -> Vendor.

The GraphicsCards.sgr and GraphicsRules.sgr files then, can be found under C:\Program files (x86)\The Sims 4\Game\Bin.

Good luck!

Hi, I ended up reinstalling my drivers and it works. I dunno why it wasn't working before because they were installed correctly. Weird.

Sometimes the driver can fail, like any other software. Good to hear that fixed it!
Don't hesitate to post if you have questions again.
Happy simming The Sims Plumbob 1 topic closed.
