    i am using ati x1400 graphics card. and i have installed the driver for it also. but it wasnt the problem before...
    one more thing i noticed is, device driver for base system is not installed which is showing up in device manager... is that the cause for it??? vlc player just displays a white wash when i try to play avi/xvid files.... but i can able to hear the audio....
    lately i found out that i can play these avi/xvid files in power dvd only and in nothing else .... no other player plays these files at present except power dvd....
    any solution for this???

    install DivX codecs. even in windows Xp XviD and DivX files will play without video unless you have installed DivX codecs.

    VLC is the best according to me
    I have about 150 DivX/XviD Movies in AVI Format
    All of them play in Windows Vista after installing VLC 0.8.4a

    May I ask how you got your hands on this Vista? I thought the final version is yet to be released. Don't tell me you bought it !

    well, i am happy that u r fightin against piracy. but hold a min, i am not a pirate of all time. i have just downloaded it to give it a try.
    actually i am having a legal copy of media centre edition on my laptop. since there was a much hype on vista, i thought of giving it a try.
    once its released, i will rty to buy it if i find it useful.....nobody supports piracy man...especially people from south??? never. if that is the case, how can we support our engineers to develop such a great softwares???

    Accepted. However I do recommend that you wait till all the hiccoughs are over, at least till mid 2007. I have a licensed windows xp home edition, but thats almost a dead OS as I do 99% of my work on Open SuSE, now using 10.1. That 1% I do on my legal windows is using Nokia PC suite. Bluetooth Obex functions that are available in Linux not sufficient for me.
