Ok so before, I used to always play video files on my pc fine, but then I reformatted my hard drive. Now whenever I play a video file, I get artifacts or what ever at various places during it. Parts of it will go weird coloured and stuff for a bit then it will fix. I never had this problem before and its starting to get annoying, I've tried the files on a multitude of players. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the suggestion, but while in fact my drivers did need to be updated, it didn't fix the problem.

PLease Check The Directx, Goto Microsoft and download the latest directx, Eliminate unwanted startup files.

Ok 1. I do not get any errors. 2. I use media player classic mainly but have also tried it on DivX Player, Windows Media Player, and Winamp. 3. I'll check my direct X

EDIT: K direct x upgrade didnt fix it.

it sounds like somthing is not up todate, cause a format and reinstall will bring the programs back to when ever this disk was made.

you might try your codecs... search for "Nimo Codec Pack" (Build 8) online and install teh lastest files. this is the only thing i can think of.

if they will let me add a link www.divx-digest.com/software/nimo_pack.html

this might help you out. i just had to reformat my drive also. i reloaded all teh players and codecs that i used to have and the movies would still get choppy and have green sqaures all over the place. it looked like a memory problem at first, but i did some reserch and found that every one was using.
