    I completed a fresh install of Win XP pro on my machine about 2 months ago. I installed the lastest drivers for everything on my computer and also installed windows media player 10. When I play back .mpg or .mpeg files, they look pixelated and grainy, with an overall "bleached out" appearance in color. When I play these same files on other computer, that is connected over my LAN, they play fine. The files are a collection of music videos and various funny clips that I have recieved via e-mail over the past 5-6 years. I did not create any of these myself, so the issue has nothing to do with capture or encoding.

    So far, I have rolled back to windows media player 9, tryed installing new codec's (divx), and basically am stuck now.

    These files worked fine before the install, and honestly, I do not remember if they did not work right after the install, I just recently saw the problem.

    My system stats:

    DFI board- infinity nforce 2
    AMD 2500+
    1 gig PC400 DDR RAM
    Geforce 6800 (Asus V9999) Ultra - 256mb RAM
    System runs cool - 41.5 C degrees maximum on CPU, never overheated
    Games and everything else run perfectly.
    Graphics in game play flawlessly, no artifacts or anything at all to complain about.

    I get the same problem when I play the video's in realplayer, so I believe the issue is now either with the codec's installed on my system or it has to be a conflict?

    I have the newest Nvidia Drivers, I tried rolling them back to a perivous version with no success.

    Thought this info might help?!?!?

    The playback basically has a "haze" or "halo", which means watching clicks unbearable! Any thoughts?

    is the "overlay gamma" set too high in the display settings?

    overlay gamma was set at 1.00, I tried adjusting it, which had no change on the video output, at least it didn't make things better, just made the rest of the screen look bad.
