What does this error mean-

The hardware accelerated decoding function provided by your display card is unavailable for selection because you switched to an unsupported display mode, .

Please exit PowerDVD, select a display mode with lower resolution and a smaller palette, and start PowerDVD again. If this message appears again, please update your display driver with the latest version.

I am on 800*600 and 16 bit colour, nothing special. I did try and put it onto lower settings and as expected that did nothing.

Start > Run > Copy and Paste:


Click "ok"

Then click on the "Display" tab at the top...

Under "DirectX Feature" make sure everything is enabled.

If it does not work post back.

Oh try putting it to 1024*768.

1024*768 does nothing different.

All of the features on directX are turned on, I used the tests too and they worked out OK.

What graphics card are you using?

What driver version are you using?

Have you tried to update the drivers?
