haha alright.

You could try to install Shark007's codec pack which may help with your DivX issue.

To get Aero to be re-enabled, click the troubleshooter link at the bottom where you choose themes.

Right click desktop | Personalize

Thanks for the help dude..

I have tried re-enabling w the XP drivers and force hacking it but its not re-enabling. Ill try that pack out and see how it goes. Its weird I've never had this problem before.

I guess i could force it with 16 bit. but the 16 bit colour is really terrible to be honest.

XP driver can not work with Aero. You need at least a Vista driver installed. Just install the normal driver for Windows 7 from NVIDIA's site.

You're welcome.

There in lies the problem. The newest drivers and the windows update drivers cause this "jumpiness" in video playback. Still occurring even with all the suggestions you have provided.

ive narrowed the problem down to windows aero itself.

With it enabled, divx webplayer video quality is reduced and audio loses sync.

with it disabled, video quality improves, audio stays in sync but produces "mini freeze" every 5-8 seconds.

Try updating your motherboard/chipset drivers if any are available.

I have a Nvidia 8600 GT graphics card with windows 7 ultimate clean installed on an amd athlon 4200 duo core 2.2ghz proccessor and 2 GB of ddr RAM

Installed latest drivers 8.17.11.9562 released from nvidia nov 20th 2009.

Everything appeared to be working smoothly until i began streaming divx. The sound was out of sync considerably from the start and continuing to get worse as the video played. The picture quality appeared to be lower as well.

Viewing flash movies from youtube produced "lagging" or skipping. At least 3-5 seconds apart.
These problems were mainly experienced in full screen viewing at 1680 x 1050.

The only temporary fix was to lower my colour quality from High -32 to Medium 16.

This has fixed the problem completely. However I can no longer use Aero effects.
I would like to use Aero. My performace ranks my card at a 6.4 for Aero performance
While in High 32 colour, Aero runs beautifully. So does every other feature for that matter. But video playback suffers. Having a media pc makes this a problem for me.


Any idea or possibly solution?

Thank You
The current 195.62 has given me some issues. I would suggest backing up to 8.16.11.9107 (191.07 for x64).

Have you checked for bios updates. I found I needed a newer bios for Win7 than for Vista and this solved some issues I was having with my Win7 install.
