  1. Well, It just happened out of no were, Games wont work with out kinda "double Vision" and slight Spazzing out. and If I try to launch a Video. The player crashes. even booting the computer, the screen Spazzes out. Its not my Monitor.

    It all started happening a day after, I removed a Trojan, and Installed a Nvidia Video Card update.
    Ive even reinstalled the Nvidia Video Card Update from earlier, still nothing.
    screen Is fine when I'm not watching any videos of any type or running a Game.
    Also, My video card seems fine. But when I go into "add hardware" In control panel, one device isnt working.
    "MEDIA" that's all it says, something about code 28.

    Windows media player Crashes, wont play anything, But Real-player Plays all Videos fine, I think It has something to do with the Trojan and My
    Video Drivers. can someone help me out with fixing this, thanks

    It could be that the trojan left something behind or maybe it was just a dodgy GPU flash. You may need to take it into a shop if you don't get an answer here.
    Good luck!

    try reinitializing your gpu as in rollback to first update and go from there. Also, I would try to figure out what code 28 is for. Try googling it.

    Turns out Code 28, has something to do with Video Drivers. Hmm I Wonder.. Trojan... sigh
    I recently Discovered a few Nvidia Programs Of mine had been uninstalled, everything is reinstalled now, but the problem Persists.
    I just found out something else, It only does it in Full screen modes. If I open up a Game or anything else, but make It run in a window, It works fine.

    I did a system restore, This did not fix my problem.

    Are you sure you removed all of the virus?

    Make sure you completely remove all NVIDIA related software when reinstalling your graphics driver back.

    I'd suggest using a a program like Driver Sweeper to make sure you are completely rid of any of the drivers, before reinstalling new ones

    Well the weirdest thing happened my computer fixed itself.

    I ran a Defragment on my secondary hard drive (no system folders, nothing just files) and it fixed everything... O.o

    It does'nt explain anything at all, because it was on my games fullscreen not working, like a said before it was also the boot screen doing it. now everything's fine. the hard drive doesnt even have the drivers on it. im confused as all hell here.
