Video Problems / Black screen

By Rile
Apr 5, 2007
  1. When i try to put on a video, it does matter what sort of file it is. The video player just show a black screen, but the audio works just fine. I've tried to install all sort of players / codecs / Drivers, but i still cant make it work.

    The graphic card is Geforce 7600Gs

    There is one way i can get it work and it's when i press Ctrl alt + del when it's playing the "black screen", then i close the player with much lagg. If im lucky it works next time i open the file in the player, otherwise computer restart or just same as before.

    I know it works cause i did just reinstall windows the otherday and it did work fine for a while, until i installed some programs, then it didnt work again. I did uninstall all programs, and suddenly it did work again. Then i did reboot my computer, and it didnt work again . i uninstalled all programs that i thought could be a problem, but it still doesnt work.

    If someone got any ideas what it is please tell.

    Please help meee!

    when you say video player-i presume you mean windows media player?

    did you reinstall your motherboard drivers from the disc-if not-you will need to download the chipset from your particular mobo site


    here is a good codec download that managed to make all my videos play-give it a go!
