Sims 3/Generations Issue: "Device 0 cannot run this title."

Post by zelardo on Thu 02 Feb 2012, 18:58

Hello,

After downloading/installing The Sims 3 base game and Generations (and applying the fix and everything necessary to play) I came across this error when pressing the play button on the launcher: "Unable to start game. Device 0 cannot run this title. No supported video graphics card detected. Please check your system hardware."

My question here is, I can actually play World of Warcraft on this computer without problems. So why not The Sims? I'm not exactly sure how to post my system specs on to here, but if necessary, I can with some help Smile I'm on an HP Mini running Windows XP. Thank you!

Hello,

See if your PC can run the game: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/

Since you're running on an HP Mini, I don't think your GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) is powerful enough to run The Sims 3.

Hello,
That's too bad.
Perhaps you would like to try a different type of sims, perhaps you can run the original sims, or one of the sims stories.
Its not The sims 3, but its something.
