"hardware acceleration is either disabled or not supported by your video card driver ensure hardware acceleration is turned on"

Scroll down to Vista click here. When you get there it is possible that you cannot make any changes - I cannot with my Nvidia card.

I would do a system restore to before you updated the driver as I suspect that the updated driver is the problem.

can you roll back the driver as you would in xp?

Right click on desktop Properties for display settings Settings Advanced look for a slider under troubleshooting make sure its at the top or right

found it but the driver does not allow changes, had enough of reinstalling and deleting graphics drivers tried a fresh download that still had same probs and turned driver back to vista one.

will go back to prev nvidia one in next day or too. strange it was just vista solitaire that has this problem.
