  1. Hello
    I just had this card installed, and i am now having problems with video's down loaded from the web. The video picture colors are all off, sound is fine. I Am using Windows XP pro. It/videos work intermitantly?? Mostly dont,,, PC Games and still pics are just GREAT. Any ideas on how to fix. I have fiddled with different things but nothing changes the video color quality.

    Ah, my sounds not to be a video card problem, but more of a codec issue. make sure your codecs are up to date and if that doesn't work, post your system specs.

    problem fixed

    Thanks for the info.
    What i did is just uninstall the video card and re-install, with what came on the cd, and did not try any of the updates. It worked just fine after.
    Have a good day.
