Default Nvidia drivers

When i install these new drivers off the nvidia site and try to play videos of any sort it's a teeirble white glare and can't really see anything when trying to watch it, Anyone know what the problem is and how to fix this? I have a Geforce 6800 GT on a AMD 64 3000+ and on 1 gig of ram

Have you tried adjusting the Video Overlay display settings in the Nvidia Display Control Panel?

Get the 71.89 drivers, they are faster, and they don't have that nasty bug when watching videos. The 77.72 drivers also cause some problems aiming in some games.

You can easily fix the video problems found in 77.72.

I've posted the fix many times in previous threads. A synopsis would be color correction -> overlay -> advanced mode in the nVidia control panel. If you don't get it, search for it. You could basically search for "77.72" or "color correction" and you will find it.

Or more specifically, games based on the unreal 2.x engine.
