  1. This applies to, so far, these apps:

    * Windows Media Player 9
    * RealOne Player
    * PowerDVD, WinDVD

    There's NO VIDEO. For anything! DVDs, streaming videos (launch.com), .mpg, .mpeg, etc. NOTHING. ONLY AUDIO!

    :( What happened?!

    Quicktime works. WHY DOES THAT ONLY WORK?! GRRRR!

    I need help. :confused:

    No idea. Why does Quicktime work...? :(

    I'm so glad I started ordering my parts...hopefully my new computer will be fine.

    could be codec or overylay problems. Try updating the codecs you use and check your overlay settings in the programs that don't display video and in your display card's properties. Not all cards support all types of overlays. If all else fails completely uninstall and re-install the offending programs.

    Also try reinstalling your video card drivers.

    I've reinstalled my ATI drivers, I've uninstalled and reinstalled Windows Media Player, I've reinstalled PowerDVD, all to no avail :(

    This all happened after I uninstalled PowerDVD for the first time :mad:

    Try toggling the Overlay options.

    It doesn't allow me to toggle them (I'm in the Overlay tab, but I can't move the sliders, so I don't think it's enabled).

    Holy. F****. S***.

    It worked.

    It said that the overlay controls gray out when there's no video file playing. I popped in my DVD, played it, voila, I could change the controls (they were set on no brightness, no contrast and no saturation).

    YES! THANK YOU!
