    :confused: Any video I try and play comes up with a solid blue screen. I tried opening them with the old and newer version of windows media player and neither work. Also tried watching a dvd with AVS dvd player and even THAT doesn't work, has the same blue screen. I have no clue how this happened. The only thing I did recently is download the 60 day trial version of Microsoft office so I could update my resume with Word. Could the download have caused a problem?

    Highly Highly Unlikely but the only suggestion i can make would be codecs could be missing. although that wouldnt result in a solid blue screen. so na im not sure

    Oh wait, now it's working! I closed out everything I had open and tried some mpegs again and now they work. That was weird. I'm going to try and delete this thread, otherwise i'll mark it as solved.
