I have dell PC (Dimension 4600) with ATI 9000 readon card. Recently I have
upgraded my OS from MCE 2004 to MCE 2005. My MCE 2004 use to work without any
issues but when I installed (with the help of DELL support), my Media Center
stopped working. I am not able to play any video.
I do not have any issues playing the video using other tools (example:
Windows Media Player), never have any problems.
I am getting error 'Your video card or drivers are not compatible with Media
Center', after I open Media Center in MCE2005.
I have tried getting the drivers installed from ATI website, but still I am
getting this error.

David and others,
I did installed the Video Decoder fromnVIDIA website and checked with
DECCHECK utility and everything looks great.
Then I started Media Center, I got the same error 'Your video card or
drivers are not compatible with Media Center'
I use to get another message in the Media Center following this error message
Title of the error: VIDEO ERROR
Message: Files needed to display video are not installed or not working
correctly. Please restart Media Center and/or restart the computer' with 'OK'
I have tried closing and reopening but I am getting the same errors.
