Lots of people are having the same problem as me on the Nvidia forums but no one has a solution, so maybe you guys could help me I have the latest 77.76 BETA driver installed but my video files crash on media player making it take up 100% of CPU. Also On GTA San Andreas the intro movie crashes. I can play movies when "hardware Acceleration" is set to a 1/3. I read somewhere that downloading codec's might help but i dont really know which could help me ?

Don't use beta drivers. :tazz:

Use an older driver and the problem should be gone until they figure out the problem in the beta.

Ive tried the 77.72 and the 77.30 but problem still there, ill see what happens if i go lower. But would any codec fix the problem?, it crashes with all video files (avi, Mpeg, wmv, etc.)

OK, Ive been trying to find a solution for this problem as well. I've tried 77.77, 77.72, 71.89 and all cause video files to lock up my machine. I can Ctrl-Alt-Del out and shut it down w/o stability problems. Driver 66.93 works for me but BF2 doesn't like that driver. Since the last post before this was from July, has there been any solution found for this problem? If someone knows, please post a link or advice.
