How to turn on or off hardware acceleration on Vista
  

One of my friend has installed Vista RTM 32bit with Radeon 9600 Video card. Every things is working fine except the display. When i checked it, i guess that the video driver or its hardware aren't perfect. I need to have some hardware acceleration on this vista system. Could you guys please let me know how can i turn on or off hardware acceleration on Vista ?

To turn off hardware acceleration on Vista, go to Personalize by right clicking on the Desktop and choose Display Settings.Now click on Advanced Settings.Now go to the Troubleshoot tab. Click Change Settings and Reduce hardware acceleration. Remember that turning off the system side of the hardware acceleration will slow down performance for all video applications, but it eliminates the black screen when starting and stopping recording applied "Turn off Hardware Acceleration While Recording" seems.

Re: How to turn on or off hardware acceleration on Vista

Windows uses your video driver for graphics and text and animation on the computer system. Some video cards and drivers have more advanced capabilities than others.Most of the time this works out well. Some times the Video manufacturer's own software can usually work better and faster than Windows itself. But sometimes there is a bug in the driver software and can't do everything it requires to do so.That 's when you have video problems in PowerPoint or other programs like. Whenever the back of the hardware acceleration a notch running, you 're telling Windows to another group of video tasks itself rather than to treat of running them to the video driver. The windows of these tasks in a simpler and slower way but it 'deal s more standardized and reliable, so let Windows handle it can eliminate the video problem.

When I try this I get as far as troubleshoot then when I go to click on change settings it tells me my current driver display does not allow changes to be made to hardware acceleration settings? how do I get it to allow me access?
