I do not have nvidia card I have all ATI cards but here is something to try:
Go to start then Run and type dxdiag in run, let it load then go to display and disable the Direct3D Accelration, exit the dxdiag, then go in there again and enable it again, exit again, then try milkdrop. Let me know if it works. SM
