DXVA2 hardware accelerated video playback not working anymore

I'm using VLC, Kodi and Youtube. The DXVA2 Hardware accelerated video playback in all players stopped working suddenly.

It happened after my laptop (Dell 1555) freezed suddnely, so it was needed to perform hard turn-off, and since then the Hardware acceleration isn't working.

Playback starts, I can hear the audio, but no video is visible. it just shows a green screen or the video crashes.



I tried rolling back the driver using Windows Device Manager everything - not helps.

Disabling DXVA in the video player options works, but isn't an acceptable workaround.








I was wondering if other people are seeing the same issue and/or if anyone has any other suggestions besides rolling back the driver or disabling DXVA2.
