after my nvidia 6800GT decided to bite the dust, i had to opt for a slightly cheaper card and got the leadtek 7600GS (AGP). things were working fine with regards to game playing and video playback until for some reason it stopped playing film clips both from the net and ones i have on my pc. i use WMP and when i load a movie file i can still see the WMP player background but the palce where the video should be playing is black. i still get sound but no video playback at all. plus my mouse pointer goes really slow and jumpy and when i check task manager, WMP is using up 98-100% of my CPU. i tried VLC player and real player and they were exactly the same. i've tried about 5 different drivers and updated my codecs and directx. the strange thing is when the drivers are installed my pc plays games but no video files, but if i uninstall the gfx drivers i can play my video clips again... meaning any time i want to play a game i have to install the drivers and vice versa if i want to watch a movie. if anyone can offer any help regarding this it will be much appreciated! ...oh yeah i also updated my bios and re flashed it as well.
