I don't really know where I should post this because I am not sure where the problem is. Playback of ANY video file in ANY player (including VLC) is so bright, it is unwatchable (the colours are bright yellow/orange/white). Since all players are affected, the problem, I assume, must be either the video card settings, or some other windows setting that i need to adjust. either way, i dont have a clue how to do it.
my drivers are up-to-date, and DirectX is too.
any ideas??

thanks.

hi keith.
i have Nvidia GeForce FX5500, and yes, everything else is just fine. it is only movie files that have these problems. i only installed the graphics card a few days ago, so i suppose THAT is the problem.

If you installed the drivers from the CD which came with the card, have you since looked for updated drivers on Nvidia site
