You should be able to access your NVidia card's settings by following these directions:
Right-click in an empty space on your desktop and select Properties. Click on the Settings tab. In the bottom-right corner, click on Advanced. One of the tabs there should say NVidia.
If you see anything there that you feel comfortable modifying, go ahead. Otherwise, wait till later today when I can see my own NVidia settings so I can help you better.
Your current problem is still darkness, and then blurryness if you increase brightness/contrast correct? I have a feeling it's going to turn out to be a bad monitor. While you wait for me, if possible, borrow someone else's monitor that works fine and plug it up to your computer to see how it looks.

Let's change some settings and see what happens:
Right-click anywhere in empty space on your desktop. Select Properties. Click on the Settings tab. At the bottom, click on Advanced. Click on the Troubleshoot tab.
Now uncheck the box that says Enable write combining. If you don't see this box, don't worry, we'll skip it. Click on Apply after UNchecking it. Don't exit this window yet, just move it out of your way. See if you still have the same video problems.
If your video problem still exists, go back to the window with your video settings. See the bar next to Hardware Acceleration? Slide that bar to the left by ONE notch. Click on Apply and see if your video problem is solved or not. If it is not, keep sliding the bar to the left by ONE notch and click Apply until your video problem is solved or the bar ends up all the way to the left. Remember to exit out of media player before moving the bar.
When you find the setting that works, let me know the description under the Hardware Acceleration slider. If the problem still exists after moving the bar all the way to the left, we will have to dig deeper. If the problem is solved, there is a bit more to do. This is only a temporary solution.
Let me know how it goes.

Disable all DirectDraw and Direct3D accelerations, as well as all cursor and advanced drawing accelerations. Use this setting to correct severe problems with DirectX accelerated aplications.

Your NVidia drivers are from 8-25-2004. I have a feeling that they are out-of-date and are not compatable with your current version of DirectX.
Before we fix this problem, please create a restore point. To create a system restore point, go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
Now, Right-click on My Computer and select Properties. Click on the Hardware tab. Click on Device Manager. Expand the catagory called Display Adapters. Double-click on your video card, which is NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700LE. Click on the Driver tab. Click on Update Driver.
If it asks you "Can windows connect to Windows Update to search for software", tell it Yes, this time only. After it is done searching, it will automatically update your driver if it finds something.
If it successfully updates, tell it you will restart later and then do this: Right-click anywhere in empty space on your desktop. Select Properties. Click on the Settings tab. At the bottom, click on Advanced. Click on the Troubleshoot tab. Now check the box that says Enable write combining. Now slide the bar next to Hardware Acceleration all the way to the right. Click on Apply and then OK.
Now you can restart your computer. If it found an update, let me know if your video problem is fixed. If it didn't find an update, let me know. I can manually find one.

Here are the updated drivers for your video card:
Scroll down to the bottom and choose the download location that is closest to you. After you download it, run it. Follow the onscreen instructions to update your video card. After installing, reboot your computer and see if your video problem still exists.
Let me know how it goes.
