    I have video problems:mad:.
    When I play a video, for example at BBC-News or at Stage-6, all I seen
    is a green rectangle.
    The video does launch and play, I hear sound, the scroller bar scroll,
    but there is no image, just a green rectangle.
    What can I do ?
    Some tell me it's a driver or codec problem. Whatever that means, I
    have only one question: How To Fix It?
    And how come a modern $3000 Computer (Pentium-4 dualCore Windows XP
    Pro, with players WMP-11, Quicktime, VLC) has these problems? :mad:
    :biggrin:
    I am not completely stupid, but do I need to be a genius nerd hacker
    just to simply use a computer?

    What happens if you disable hardware acceleration on your video controller
    properties - Select Display in Control Panel.

    My motherboard is
    ASUS P5WD2 Premium Mother Boar
    My Graphic Card is
    ASUS EN7800 GTX Ultra Top PCI Express, 256M

    Attached is a list of my drivers from running DriverMagician

    I was also told some of the video problems may be due to sites unable to
    handle Explorer-7, the solution being to switch back to Explorer-6.

    I would check for updated video drivers on the website for your PC
    manufacturer or video card manufacturer. Then you can play with the hardware
    acceleration again.
