I just got my computer back from being repaired and I'm noticing that when I'm watching a video on Windows Media Player it's all distorted and seems like it's in ultra high contrast. This happens when I'm watching streaming video and video i download. I tried everything I could think of...no help. Anyone know what is wrong?
NOTE: I have windows media player 10

Hello,

What kind of movie file are you trying to watch? Is the audio working or is that garbled as well? Also, what size of file are you trying to play? The more info the better and we can get to the bottom of this.

Cheers,
Tom

I tried playing .wma files and it looked like I mentioned. So far it has done it with every video Ive tried to watch which would cover a lot of different sizes. The sound is perfect, just the video is messing up. I know it would work fine before I got it repaired, but now it messes up the video. I played battlefield 2 perfect recently.

What was wrong with it was that my floppy drive somehow broke, making the computer not want to boot up. I got a new floppy drive, but the same thing happened. I took it to a guy we knew and he said the new floppy drive was faulty, so he put another one in there. He aslo said that I messed with the BIOS settings in my attempt to fix it, but he fixed it. That might have something to do with it i dunno.
