A graphic conundrum

  1. Hello.

    So here's my problem... Whenever I play video in any program such as: FLC, WMP, Quicktime, and DVD apps, I get a really grainy and non defined picture. Also sometimes my wall paper has the same effect with black levels. Link to screenshot of problem below.


    However I get great clarity and deep blacks whenever I run any adobe cs program, 3ds max, or rhino. Weird
    Now I have checked many forums, consulted with friends who are far superior in comp knowledge to me, etc. for weeks to no avail for a solution.
    I have updated my monitor and graphic drivers completely. I have tweaked with refresh rates, resolutions, color displays, everything and cannot figure it out.
    This workstation is only a year old (it's been happening since day one), I should be able to watch video fine. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    My Specs

    Monitor: Dell G2210
    GCard: NVidia Quadro FX 570
    Procs: Intel Xeon Processor E5540 2.83 GHZ
    RAM: 4 GB

    If you haven't already, can you try a different graphics card and see if it's any different?
