    download a program called driver cleaner
    uninstall you drivers
    boot in safe mode
    run driver cleaner and select it to remove all drivers to do with your graphics
    reboot
    install drivers
    reboot

    try that.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You may also have a codec problem. Download the K-lite codec package from HERE.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    YAYYYY! Someone with the same problem as me!
    I'm having this same darn trouble. I can't play ANY video files at all, BUT flash videos work(the ones on youtube =P).
    When I uninstall my nvidia video drivers, I can run the movies. But then of course that's a downer since I have uninstalled drivers...

    I don't think it's a codec problem since I even tried playing them with VLC player and my computer still lags like mad when trying to play movie files.
    Music files run fine, only problem is the video files.

    I'll try to describe the problem as best as I can.

    I double click the .avi file or any movie file and my media player loads up.
    From here it lags like MAD. The screen flickers every few seconds while I try to load up Task Manager. It takes a while to load up with the lag, I see the CPU usage is at 100%. It takes me a while to end task the media player, but when I do my computer runs back smoothly.

    Kinda strange don't you think? I can play FEAR and my video games fine but I can't even run my movies.

    I'll post my some dxdiag stuff. Hopefully a solution pops up. Thanks

    UPDATE!!! :
    The flickering problem has been solved thanks to my Hardware professor! I was using a CRT monitor and when I poped on a LCD monitor it was able to handle what the graphics card was trying to send it. I'm still having issues though. The CPU usage is still at 100%. I tried to play the .avi files on VLC player as well and it lagged quite bad and I still get no picture(only the media player showing black). I can hear the sound but it still sorta lags.
