I have an NVIDIA GeForce FX5700 card, which was pretty good on XP sp3, but when I upgraded to win 7 it updated the latest driver and now I get choppy streaming video. I can't disable hardware acceleration. The option is greyed out. Is it possible to use an older driver, and if so, how would I go about doing that?
I know there aren't win 7 drivers for that particular card and I assume they are the vista drivers. Maybe I could use an XP driver, but I don't Know if that's a possibility or how to do it.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Your video card isn't that great. I would suggest upgrading.

I never thought it was a "great" card. I said it was pretty good. (XP sp3). I just want to know if there is a way to fix the choppy video in win 7. Thanks again.

You will need to upgrade, and what is your CPU?

GO back to XP Pro SP3 or upgrade your computer.

Your CPU is not adequate enough for Win7.
