Hi, wonder if anyone can help me as i know very little about computers lol. i had to reboot my computer using the original packard bell disks. since then when i try and play a dvd in windows media player i get a message saying unable to play as i dont have a compatible dvd decoder? first i had no sound working so i installed a driver called realtek ac97 (remember this from memory!) and now i have sound, i can also watch videos on youtube. i have a yellow quesiton mark by video controller and system interupt controller so something is wrong somewhere.the computer is a packard bell and the motherboard has been changed (now has a abit or something)

Sorry, I completely missed the "motherboard has been changed part", apologies. Ignore the first driver link.

It appears I can't link directly to the correct page;

click here

Click Drivers on the left hand side, then click IP-95 in the list that appears.

Display driver and VIA Hyperion Pro required.
