    OK, about a week ago, my system froze when I tried installing SP2 for my XP. Soooooooo, one of my friends took my system for me and backed up all my old files and reformatted my hard drive for me and basically gave me a pretty good clean up of my system.

    My picture overall is great, even just downloaded the latest driver for my graphics card,

    HOWEVER,

    Playing video, movies, etc., the resolution is VERY bright. Almost unable to make out the images. This is ocurring on more than just my media player. (I originally just thought it was the settings for WMP9). I went to Yahoo Launchcast to watch a video and it is the same thing. I can adjust WMP and get proper resolution for that application, however, I have to do this each time I open it.

    What could be causing this? I am clueless. What settings do I need to adjust and how much?

    Windows XP Pro, S3 ProSavage DDR graphics

    Thanks!

    Its more likely that the codecs you are using for the players need updating?

    Use google to locate updated codecs.
