I just built a new PC.
Everything works perfectly fine, except when i go to watch movies the color display on the movie is all distorted. I have a GeForce 6800 GT video card, and a ViewSonic VA712b Monitor. I have installed all the drivers that i know of. Games run flawlessly, everything works awsome, except when i got to watch movies in Media Player. The videos play, but the color is all distorted and it looks like it was a white tint to it. Any ideas of what is wrong? Hope someone can help.

Are you watching movies that are on your computer or are you watching a dvd?

Problem Solved. The Default Setting on the Video Card had the Gamma a little to high. Changed the Gamma to 0 and now its perfect.
