Windows Vista, nVidia & Media Issues
I'm having a problem with my PC since installing Windows Vista (Ultimate
64-bit). It seems there are serious issues with media playback, so much so
that whenever I try to watch a video my system dies, whenever I try to run
the performance evaluator and the system gets to media playback evaluation,
it dies and whatever I try to burn video to DVD, the system dies.

Sometimes I get lucky and there's just a error message to let me know what
my display driver had a problem but the system has recovered, generally
though I have to reboot my PC as it hangs at a black screen or a screen of
garbled, static, images.

There have been no hardware changes to my PC, and all was running perfectly
under Windows XP Pro 64-bit.

I'm running an AMD Athlon X2 4200+ w/ an ASUS A8N32-SLI motherboard & 256MB
nVidia GeForce 7800 GTX (made by Gigabyte). I have tried all available
versions of Forceware drivers, currently running 100.65.

I have notified nVidia of my problem with no response and I'm wondering if
I'm alone with this problem.

RE: Windows Vista, nVidia & Media Issues
I'm running Vista Ultimate, its supposed to do everything Home Premium can
and more. As for any version of windows not being able to play WMVs, thats
would have to be one of the stupidest restrictions I've ever heard of in my
entire life. Why on earth would Microsoft force anyone to video formats other
than their own?

Take a look here. New driver fixes a lot of playback issues:

RE: Windows Vista, nVidia & Media Issues
Unfortunately, no dice. I was hopeful when I read that it was supposed to
correct some media playback issues, alas, it doesn't correct mine.

Thanks for pointing out the download though, I grabbed 100.65 just the day
before this update was released, just goes the show the rapid nature of
development I guess.

But, problem still stands. Any further ideas, let me know.

Thanks,
Jason.
