WinDVD 2.2 and green screen

I am running Windows 98 with WinDVD 2.2 and a S3 Savage 4 32mb AGP Video card. Everytime I go to play a DVD, no matter what resolution and color combination I choose, I always get nothing but solid green video. The sound works just fine. I have tried reloading DirectX7.0a which cam with the WinDVD software and I have even upgraded to Directx 8.0a but I still have the same problem.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Steak

Sounds like the overlay isn't working properly or something. I'm not really familiar with WinDVD, maybe see if there is a help faq on their site.

You might try downloading a trial version of PowerDVD from http://www.gocyberlink.com/english/p....jsp?ProdId=28 and letting it do its diagnostics that show up the first time you run it. Maybe it'll have some info there. Or maybe it'll even work. WinDVD has gone through several versions since the 2.2 version you have.

You might want to try upgrading your copy of WinDVD to something more current - I bought a copy of 2.3 via eBay, and found a free upgrade to version 2.6, which works better than the older version I had.
