    When I try to watch a movie/animation on a webpage, or try to play games, I get an error saying something about Drive Component mismatch. Exit is the only option. :confused:

    In order to provide meaningful help, it would require that you advise the Operating System and version, and what software applications you are running, including the browser and version.

    The exact error message would be essential.
    Its very hard to search in databases for "an error saying something about Drive Component mismatch"

    Have you downloaded the latest Video Card driver for your system, uninstalled the old Video Card driver, and installed the new one?

    It sounds like the NVidia drivers may be in need of attention, or at least thats exactly what its telling you.
