    We set the display to 'projector only' for DVD's, though i might give the above suggestion a go at some point.

    Start > Run > 'dxdiag' > Display tab > disable DirectDraw Acceleration - that should sort you out

    We have the problem with an Nvidia 8400GS card. Not a fantastic card I know, but I wouldn't say it should struggle with something like this - it isn't onboard and has 256MB of dedicated graphics memory.

    It'll be the overlay settings - that'll solve the problem for sure

    had this problem this morning, going to control panel ---- display---- advanved then troubleshoot and turn the video accelleration down from full to none sorted it. I have also had it when the teacher started the dvd playing before putting the projector on?

    It doesnt always work...and seems wrong...but try decreasing the hardware acceleration....this sometimes also helps when trying to display video embedded in Powerpoint.

    Cheers
