No video on avi, and a few other things

  1. 1 day they were all working great, i never changed anything

    then next day, I get no video on ANY media (dvd, avi, mpeg, ect), but streams on net still work

    I have my resolution set to 1680x1050 all the time, 32 bit. I can change these easily every time. BUT when i restart they all go back to 800x600 32bit

    also when i restart, the screen just stays black till windows loading screen is done, i am unable to see ram check, ect.

    Today i just tried playing starcraft, brood war (very old game) and I got sound, could move mouse around, even use hot keys to get to online login screen, where i could just see the text floating barely there. but everything else was black

    What i dont get is World of Warcraft works on max video settings without a problem, constant 60 FPS.

    I have no idea what to do. As for the video files ive downloaded k-lite codec pack, uninstalled all my media players, reinstalled them the same as ive had them.

    Please help :(

    edit: this is for windows XP pro
