    Most likely codec trouble. Try Matroska or K-Lite Codec Pack (only recently learned about it).
    You might need to deinstall the old codecs from the Add and Remove Software manager in the Control Panel (or directly from a program folder).
    But I guess you didn't install any additional codec packs, right?

    If you want to know which codecs you have installed, have a look in the System Information or what it's called...perhaps someone with an English OS can tell you. Not even sure which OS you are running.
