When trying to open a video file I get the following message:

 

"The DVIDIA display panel cannot be created.

Possible reasons include:

Version mismatch. Reinstalling display drivers may solve the problem."

 

What is the procedure for doing this.  Do I have to download new drivers or use the driver that sits in my "Drivers" folder( My Documents>Drivers

 

Please note that i do not posess a Windows XP Pro system disc

 

Also please note that although I get this message when I exit, the video still opens up.

 

Regards

Hello,

 

That is a bad driver version.. You will probably want to remove them, clean them off your PC (Driver Sweeper in safe mode), and reinstall with an older driver. Hopefully you didn't already damage your card as that driver has killed some cards.

 

P.S. I suggest you to create a restore point before doing this.

 

Regards

Sorry for late reply.

If it is onboard graphics i suggest you to tell me your motherboard model. so that we download latest drivers from manufacturer website.
