Need access to Driver acceleration

Under Display Settings > Advanced Setting > (tab) Troubleshoot it should
allow you to adjust your settings. My drivers for my graphics card and mother
board are up to date, but I still cant get access. It says "Your current
display driver does not allow changes to be made to hardware acceleration
settings." Please someone tell me how to adjust this so I can change my
acceleration settings.

You need to tell us the make and model of the computer and what edition of
Vista and whether x86 or x64. Also the graphics card.

I have the same problem.... I have a Thinkpad R61 with an NVIDIA Quadro NVS
140M card, and Windows Premium, running on an x86.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Hmm... My specific problem is when I try to play movies in Powerpoint, they
appear as black boxes. I have solved this problem on half a dozen XP
machines by reducing the hardware acceleration. Any idea how I could achieve
a similar result in Vista? I am coming close to chucking my laptop out of a
window...

Thanks!
