Can't disable hardware acceleration

Aug 23, 2010 2:32 PM

player version: WIN 10,1,82,76

operating system: Windows 7 32 bit

Browser: IE 8, Firefox, Chrome.

Nvidia driver version:186.18(i tried with the latest version as well same problem reverted to this one becouse i used it once before on windows xp and it worked)

I have an Geforce 8500 GT


Flash crashes after a few seconds of playback, I wouldn't be writing this if I could turn off hardware acceleration since that worked before... now it doesn't.Everytime i try and uncheck the options in the settings panel it just checks itself back.

I've reinstalled flash player several times same problem.

    Try the following

    • close all browser windows;
    • open Windows Explorer;
    • type %appdata%\Adobe in the address bar;
    • delete the 'Flash Player' folder in there;
    • type %appdata%\Macromedia in the address bar;
    • delete the 'Flash Player' folder in there;
    • close Windows Explorer, then try to disable hardware acceleration again.
