I installed these on my Gefore 6800 Ultra, and when i play videos like mpegs or avi's or even streaming moves from my hard drive or on the internet the video quality looks like it has a white fuzzy filter over it. You know how in some Divx moves you can see the blocky areas over the black areas like low motion filters, this is what it looks like. looks like a low motion video filter but this makes it a hazy white. My games run the same, look the same. This started to happen when i uninstalled my 77.30 drivers and installed the newest ones 77.72 Any idea's? I have the latest Divx, Xvid and Windows media player codec's installed and the effect is not effected in WM Player 10, it also happens when Divx play, Windvd, and winamp play the movies. Any idea's? Thanks guys!

I am having the same issue. I think someone mentioned changing the Color Correction to advanced mode, but this did not work for me.

i am stuck at work for another hour or so, and i posted on another forum with someone with the same problem, here are their responces:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
"go to color correction. the first tab, change to ALL, then hit RESTORE DEFAULTS.

then hit ok. problem solved. it will move gamma back to 1.00"
--------------------------------------------------------------------



and this on:

--------------------------------------------------------------------
It's a bug with the overlay settings. Go to Display Properties->Advanced and open the Geforce tab. Go to color correction, select Apply to Overlay and All Channels. Then change color profile from standard to advanced, you should now get a straight line in the graph. Hit apply and you are done.

What amazes me is that nvidia didn't catch such an obvious bug.

First thing I do when I get a new driver is play a dvd with it. And you'd have to be blind not to see this bug. Nvidia has some really bad testers in their company.

That's odd.
for temp. solution do this steps.

Color Correction.

Then -> Apply color changes to [Overlay]

Then set -> Color profile: [Advanced mod]

Then hit Apply.

hope this will work until nvidia fix this issue.

If the above suggestions don't work try playing video with CLASSIC Media Player, also known as Quicktime/Realplayer Alternative. It doesn't seem to be affected.

I rolled back to 77.50's the overlays are fine. DVD playback is important to me and broken overlay adjustments arent gonna cut it . The fix defaults arent satisfactory to me. Try again nvidia. I"ll wait for an updated driver

This worked for me.

I had to go into the Color Correction tab, Choose ALL up top and then choose Advanced Mode at the bottom before I could hit Restore Defaults. Once I did that, it worked great.

Everytime I fire up PowerDVD, it's working fine now. I don't have to set it each time.

This worked for me too, before I simply used the "ALL" option instead, but that raised the contrast 10% higher than normal for overlay.

This needs a fix from NVidia. Not releasing a new driver for this issue is careless and arrogant. I hope we'll see one within a few hours.

Same problem here!

I uninstalled the driver and with 66.xx or 71.xx everything is OK

Come on now, use a little common sense. Their unified drivers work for every line of cards they've produced (except maybe the very old TNT, which IIRC was recently dropped). How do you reach such an absurb conclusion (that is, a driver bug = dropping support for their recent series of cards)?

This bug didn't even occur on my FX card.

Media player freezes when playing videos and ChrisTV won't start at all when useing the latest drivers, definately something broken with the overlay, does anybody knows which files, in the drivers, contains the 2D/Overlay functions?? I am trying to build a mixed driver set with the newest files for 3D and the older 71.xx for 2D/overlay.

What i meant was they were probably preoccupied and were putting all the work into getting this driver out in time for 7800gtx lauch, they didn't put enough testing into their older cards and overlooked or disregarded such a simple problem. shame on nvidia.

:mad: :thumbdwn: :rolleyes: :(
I have an Nvidia Geforce 6800GT and I updated to ForceWare 77.72 drivers and tried to play a short movie using Windows Media Player and the movie was so messed up I couldn't see it. I went on line to see if anyone else had this problem and sure enough Nvidia screwed up again. I find it hard to believe they could let such a major bug get passed the testing. I'm a programming and this blows my mind. I went back to my older drivers. Now the problem is getting Nvidia the word they have a problem and next getting them to admit it and then fix it.
