I owned a 9500 that did not have the "chip"
There's a chip required to play protected content as well as some newer stuff such as BluRay that won't play on VGA displays.
Rather than repeat prior discussions I'm going to shortchange you as all this has prior discussions (sorry, no, I also won't find them again.)
Go back to the drivers that worked and forget the protected playback until you get a card with the needed DRM controls. I have some strong feeling about this area and don't want to derail the conversation.
Why did this card just quit working? Is it due to the update of the driver?
Can u advise me of a cheap card that will work? I am an old fart that not a gamer
1. Because it's an old card.
They do have finite life spans and the old "why did it quit working?" question requires a forensics lab to figure it out. I worked long ago in that area and we would do "root cause analysis" but today you won't find folk paying for this but just toss in a new card.
2. I like the ATI 5450 1GB card which can be found for under 40 bucks or less.
Not old card
I researched this and both card and monitor are HDCP compliant.
Thanks for no help
Sorry but the 9500 is very old.
I see a lot of dead ones like that and 8800 and now 9800 cards. The owners are often upset about this so I just zip it and point at the usual replacement.
The 9500GT came out in 2008. That's old in GPU cards.
Second request for clarification.
The details are too slim here. I can't tell or missed how the display is connected (VGA will fail DRM controls!) and maybe someone reinstalled the OS and there's a driver we need to install or the video card won't be detected.
More details please.
This was a driver issue. Had nothing to do with "Old card".that was HDCP compliant.
I use what details folk supply.
As I bump into the non-HDCP compliant 9500 once in a while it's not funny to show the client it fail with their card and word with our 9500.
And more story may be needed because even Windows 8 may require motherboard chipset drivers before we install video drivers.
Glad you fixed it but add how for others to avoid the pain.
