    HardWare Acceleration?

    Look I've been ripping my hair out for 3 days to be able to turn down hardware acceleration. Right-click Desktop> Personalize> display settings> Advanced Settings> Troubleshoot> and changes settings is grayed in and it says. Your current display driver does not allow changed to be made to hardware acceleration settings. I've tried updating display the driver, I've tried getting a new display driver, I've tried Microsoft Application Toolkit, and NVIDIA Control panel. Nothing seems to work at all. Whether or not I've done these things right I'm not sure, But no one seems to be able to help me. Its NVIDIA Geforce 9500 GS. Any help or thought with thorough instruction would be most helpful.

    Im aware my system specs are not up, Im not that good with computers and finding all those is difficult for me. So if you need to know something just Reply to this. Thank you.

    Microsoft disabled User control for AUDIO and VIDEO acceleration for Vista and later.

    It was due to a numerous amount of instability issues that came from changing the setting.

    Its best to leave the matter alone because Vista and Windows 7 do a good enough job of controlling the acceleration on its own.

    If you have a problem with a certain game/program, then find solutions for that program from its main website or ask about it on this site in the proper forum section.
