    Hi, Can someone tell me why after i have closed a pc game on my computer none of my video
    files will play in windows media player? There is sound but no picture at all. This always happens after exiting pc games. Its not untill i restart the computer that the videos will play. Very annoying having to restart everytime i want to watch a video! There must be someway around this..

    Thanks.

    Well, probably your pc game device driver is still trying to be in control...
    You might isolate this by ctr, alt, del, and end the application. And, check the settings of all your audio, video software for defaults...

    How do i check the settings of all my audio, video software for defaults? Video mainly, cause thats where the problem lies. Im suprised theres not more of a simple solution to this.
