My computer is 3.2mhz D Processor - Asus motherboard P5WD2 –E-Premium 2 GB DDR2 RAM – NVIDI GRAPHICS G Force 6600 GT Installed Windows XP –Real Player Power DVD software All functions are fine (used mainly for work in PhotoShop) But it wont play DVD Films or a Deal or no Deal Game I had for Christmas But the “Far Cry” Game supplied with the Graphics card does play after it does an automatic configuration but this has no effect of other DVD’s I have downloaded and installed the latest drivers when these wont start a message and advice sent back by Microsoft suggest I reduce screen settings and number of colours might help but they make no difference Hope you can help I have run out of options Please
