    I receive the following error message when trying to play a DVD movie (Create overlay failed. Please lower your screen resolution or color depth and try again.) I already lowered my screen resolution and color depth and I am still getting this message. Please advise.

  2. Have you asked InterVideo? I might start by reinstalling DirectX, your
    video card drivers, and WinDVD. Also, make sure Windows Netmeeting is not
    running.

  3. I have the same problem with winDVD and Microsoft Media Player on 4 laptops
    in our organisation so far. I have tried many things and latest i have
    reformatted and reinstalled one of the pc's.

    So far i have reinstalled all the software and security patches from
    microsoft, but have NOT installed "windows mediaplayer 10", "windows media 9
    series codec install package" yet.. My Mediaplayer and winDVD is still
    working.

    I also have this problem, and have had it for a couple months with Windows.
    I also have Intervideo 6 installed and that worked perfectly.

    I then installed SP2 for XP, and I get this error. Intervideo had no idea
    why this is happening.

    I reimaged my laptop and everything worked fine again.

    I then installed SP2, and again, I cannot play DVDs. I the error message
    from Sally when I try to play a dvd in medfia player, and when I try to
    launch WinDVD 6, it does not even start.

    I tried uninstalling WinDVD and then reinstalling and that did not help.

    I am now uninstalling SP2 to see if that makes a difference.
