new driver

I'am new to computers so please explain in detail. I'am unable to get media player or real player to play dvd's. I did a scan from driver agent and it says I need several things. One is I have a bad Trident Video Accelerator Blade 3D/pro media? To make it easier I will ask seperate questions for each one thank you.

What operating system are you running? Windows XP or some other version? Also, what is the make and model of your computer. If it is something like Dell, Gateway, or HP, they often have drivers available on their web sites for their computers.

First, find the latest driver for your video card. To make it easy, check out http://www.driverguide.com

Then try downloading one of the free Codec packs, do a google search for any of the K-Lite codec packs and you should be fine.

(A codec is an way of encoding and decoding information, say to decode standard DVD compression).

I think K-Lite even comes with a free media player which might suit your needs even better. =)
