    Can't enable Hardware acceleration

    Hi,

    These are the steps I did trying to enable Hardware acceleration:

    1. Choose Start, and then go to the control panel.
    2. Select Appearance and Personalization.
    3. Pick Adjust Screen Resolution from the menu.
    4. Choose Advanced Settings within the Display Settings window.
    5. Click on the Troubleshoot tab within the monitor properties window.
    6. Select change Settings.

    The step 6 'change settings' is in grew on my laptop. Does it mean that my graphic card doesn't support hardware acceleration ??

    * Accelerator Information *

    Accelerator in Use: Mobile Intel(R) 945 Express Chipset Family
    Video BIOS: 1313
    Current Graphics Mode: 1280 x 800 True Color (60 Hz)

    Thanks in advance !

    There are more than one chipsets within that chipset family. I didn't go back in this morning to look but I think one is like 945GMT.

    The best I can figure out is that you need the accelerator driver.

    Microsoft Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit versions)
    The Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Drivers support Microsoft Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit versions) with full 2D/3D HW acceleration and includes PCI Express support.
