Windows 7: Trying to Disable Hardware Acceleration on my Gateway

Trying to Disable Hardware Acceleration on my Gateway

I am still trying to disable hardware acceleration fully on my Gateway NV52 with the ATi Radeon card. It seems to escape me on Windows 7 but I have only found directions on Vista so any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks Again for the Space.

UPDATE I have played around with getting all the way up to:

1 Click Start / Control Panel /
Appearance and Personalization.
2 Under Personalization, click
Adjust screen resolution.
3 On the Display Settings dialog, click the
Advanced Settings... button.



Then....




4 On the monitor properties dialog, click the Troubleshoot tab.
5 Click the Change settings button.



That Change Settings button is shadowed out so I cannot click it, obviously because Windows knows more then me I guess.




Help?

Consider downloading the ATI Catalyst Control Center and using that to tune your display adapter.

Out of interest, why are you wanting to disable hardware acceleration?

Because Video Playback is so choppy even with a brand new NV52 Computer with 25MBPS hard wire connection and it just lags. My 5 year old XP just streams video MUCH faster with hardware acceleration disabled. It's a disgrace.

Since you are having some much problems with the machine. I suggest just format that thing and install Windows 7 fresh, none of the extra crap OEMs install. Or take the machine back to Gateway.

Hey there, I did a little research for you... have you tried what is listed here?
DirectDraw or Direct3D option is unavailable
I hope this helps you out. Saves a little time as compared to reformatting.
