something has happened to my media files. when I go to watch a downloaded mpeg or wmv format video the picture is all flourescent colours like pink, green, turqoiuse and blue...like a thermal imaging camera picture...why is it doing this? I have tried Real Player, Windows Media Player and my Creative media player from my mp3 jukebox but they are all the same. What has happened? :confused:

thanks for any help.

You will need to reduce the performance setting of your graphics card.

Each driver does this differently, but Right Click the desktop, Select Properties, Settings tab, Advance bottom Right should bring up your Cards properties.

Look for something like Performance, Enhancement, Hardware.

Had this problem recently on an ATI card. Dropping the Performance 1 level cured the problem.

Hi

My properties window tells me that my card is an ATI Radeon 9550 AGP

I have looked for a tab with "something like Performance, Enhancement, Hardware" as you say but I can't find anything...

nothing suggested so far has worked and it is really bugging me... :lease:

You realy should get 'video lan' its the most resilient player out there, it will play files others wont even touch and it seems to use its own codec's rather than system wide ones so a problem where a corrupt codec stops something from playing is removed.
Its only flaw is its pretty underdeveloped playlist.

I'd take it over real or quicktime cack and am even getting annoyed with win amp in comparision too, only it has the amazing media find library thing.
