so I recently had to repair my XP . It went back to the default WMP 7 so I had to upgrade to 10. The problem is, when I try to watch a video, there is only sound and no image, kind of like the screen is frozen. I already downloaded the latest codecs ( K - Lite) but it didn't help.

yea i downloaded that , same problem. Anyways I chagned my color quality in Display Properties back to High ( 24 bit ) , and it shows the image now . And everything is fine, even in full screen , until the mouse disappears...everything starts to move all slow, but when i move the mouse again its perfect? What should I do? But the thing is , I know that I had it in 16 bit before . But when it's in 16 it won't show anything, the freeze just freezes.

Either update your video card drivers or reinstall the drivers as one poster suggested.

Although you said it shouldn't need this, the windows OS sometimes has a way of muffing things up. I really can't see why changing resolutions should affect WMP..

Do you have the latest version of DirectX, i.e. 9.0c?
If not, download it.
