GeForce FX go5700 not displaying any video

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I have an Acer Aspire 1714 with an GeForce FX go5700 128Mb. I had 71.80 version of the nvidia drivers installed (with the inf from here), and all worked perfectly. I decided to go into 81.26 because i needed to have a version above the 75 (i need to use the OpenGL 2.0 features that are only present above the 75 series) and i chose the 81.26 because of the benchmarks presented here.

The problem is that I've lost the video display for movies. I explain, when i open a movie (avi, wmv, mpeg, ...) in any program (media player, VLC, bsplayer,...) i have no video display. I hear the sound, but there is no image. I had this problem in the past, and the solution was to revert to a previous version of the drivers, so the problem is not in the software that plays the movies, but in the drivers (or modded infs?)!

Does anyone knows what is the problem, and how to solve it? I need to preserve a version above 75, but i don't want to loose the possibility of seeing movies?

This is almost certainly a VMR problem. Go into the Overlay Settings page of the Nvidia Control Panel and check (or uncheck) the "Enable VMR" box. One of those settings should put you back in business.

Note that if you enable VMR, you also need to enable it in whatever media player you use.

Thks for your answer. That was the problem.

I needed to check the "enable VMR" option for all to work. :)

Some people need VMR ON some need it OFF... that's ODD.

When you understand the use of Video Mixer Renderer... it enables to accelerate more than one video stream.

It seems to vary by driver version. We went through a period, in the upper 70s and early 80s where everyone needed to enable it to see video. The newest drivers seem to run best with it disabled. All anyone can do is experiment and see what works best.

We need a small app to switch PowerMizer mode, VMR, Overclocking settings on the fly...
