After downloading the latest drivers for the GeForce 3 card I have, I have not been able to use the DVD player on computer. An error message pops up about the TV port being open, when nothing I have is connected to it. So I reverted back to using older drivers.

Now the problem, games (Madden 2004) is running really choppy, which I blame on the older drivers. Is there anyway to use the newer drivers, while at the same time keeping the ability to play DVD's on my computer?

Hiya and welcome

Which version of Windows are you running? Also, which version of DirectX are you using:

Go to Run and type DXDIAG
In the first tab will be the version.

Did you get the drivers from here:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp-2k_45.23

Also, is DMA enabled on the DVD's:

Start
Settings
Control Panel
Performance and Maintenance
System
Hardware
Device Manager
IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers
Primary IDE - right click
Properties
Advanced Settings


Lets also see what you have running:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

I apoligize, I didn't realize that newer drivers had been released since I had first encountered this problem. Everything works fine now, thanks for the help.
