Default GF4 PCI problem with Sims 2

Hi all, sorry if this isn't the appropriate forum since it is technically a gaming problem, but the graphics card in question is a GF4 PCI 64MB.

I have a problem with missing textures in The Sims 2 on the rooftops of some (not all) houses.

Also, the little ID boxes on the left side of the screen don't always show a face as it should. It is frequently blank.

I am asking for help for my neice because she plays the game, not me. So if I am not being descriptive enough, let me know, but please be patient because I have to act as a middle-man for her and you guys at the forum.

Any guidance, help, advice, etc., is appreciated.

Just out of curiosity have you tried the 66.93 WHQL drivers? or even the good old 56.72 WHQL drivers? My girlfriend was playing the Sims 2 on a geforce 4 MX 440 card (AGP) with the 56.72 drivers and as far as I knew it was working fine...either that or she didn't notice the missing textures. She is playing it now using the 66.93 drivers since I had to reinstall her computer because of some unrelated virus issues. But she hasn't complained about any missing textures or anything with the 66.93 drivers either...but like I said before, maybe she just hasn't noticed it. Either way I would probably give the 56.72 or 66.93 drivers a shot to see if one of those fix the problems.
