Windows 7: Which Vid Card/Driver Lets Hardware Accleration be manually adjusted?

Which Vid Card/Driver Lets Hardware Accleration be manually adjusted?

I am using Camtasia Studio 7.1 to record videos of my desktop
When I use powerpoint and play a video in the powerpoint, Camtasia will record the audio but the video shows up as a black box. In the past using XP, turning hardware acceleration down or off solved this issue. With the exact same video card NVidia GeForce 8500 GT and the latest driver I downloaded ( 10/16/2010) what worked under Xp no longer works under Windows 7

Does anyone know of a video card that the driver allows hardware acceleration to be adjusted manually? I can't even test this since it's now greyed out.

I've also been told by Camtasia Tech Support that powerpoint uses Windows Media Player to playback movies and I've gone to organize/options/performance and under DVD and video playback i unchecked "turn on DirectX Video Acceleration for WMV files" since i always used the .wmv file format - that didn't help
