Hello

my problem is starting to annoy me due to circumstance, right after a clean install due to AOL related problems, and then realising i accidentily created a new 20GB partition for the setup i get this.

Basically most video files are low quality and really bright. These include streaming video (IGN, Winamp, etc.(not Qucktime files)) and AVI files (WMP10, DivX) and VOB files (PowerDVD). Also WMP10 crashes when i open WMV files.

I've just installed the XVID, DivX and DVD Decoder drivers to no avail, and have also reinstalled the driver for my graphics card (GForce FX5200)

If any other info is need i have 1GB RAM (not fast RAM or anthing special, yust lots of the MB), an Athlon 2600+ and not much else mentionable, unless your into 3G ipods.

I'm having which seems to be the exact same problem. http://www.geekstogo...elp-t40658.html

Edit: Check out my edit on that post. My videos are working again just by installing older drivers. Link: http://www.techspot....indows-XP-2000/
for XP, I'm sure you can find them for other versions of Windows too.

Yes, the new driver was problematic, i installed an older driver and it all worked fine, the new driver stopped half-life 2 working as well.

Thanks for the help.
