Vista x64 media centre video drivers not installed or installed incorrectly

Messages

hi peoples

i have installed my media centre for the 3rd time in a month. Due to various issues. (1 being sleep) Now i have installed the same drivers as the first build for HDMI audio and video, which i had perfect dvd playback and tv on, however i am faced with errors about video drivers not properly installed.

Last time it was the HDMI driver which i have installed and reinstalled 3 times. It seems every time i follow the exact same process at rebuilding vista 64 i get a different result.

Is there a way you can reset media centre so it checks the drivers all over again. I am interested in resetting audio and video if possible

Hi, audiophile, and welcome to the forums.

It would help to know your Graphics card and setup - I have installed Vista Ultimate x64 twice - once for testing, and then a format and reinstall as I changed the partition setup - since then (2 months now) I have not had a single issue with WiMP / WMC.

found out the issue was problem with registry uninstalled all the drivers in safe mode used registry editor to remove all entries for nvidia. and then reinstall again. What gets me is how can the drivers be stuffed / registry with a fresh install so quickly. Gets you thinking why there are issues with Vista.

now i just have to resolve this damn sleep issue.

Also, make sure that the drivers that you are using are ***from the manufacturer's website / chipset manufacturer's website***

yeah i have read that document and working through it at the moment 90% i had already done.

working on the startup items now.... and see how the testing goes with it.

If it doesnt might start a new thread about the sleep issues. All drivers are WHQL from manufacturer websites, inluding the latest BIOS.

Kewl, thanks for the additional heads up - I can stop talking to you like a n00b now :P

Keep that Driver Sweeper handy - nVidia every now and again has issues with driver on top of driver installs, especially if you decide to go Beta (as I did to get PhysX support for the GPU before the official release).
