Can anyone help.

Following my recent computer build I have tried playing various video media i.e DVD, Own Video footage captured on DV tape and flash drive, music videos downloaded etc.

The problem is when played back via Windows media player, Nero Media player or watching music videos on iTunes they only play back in Black & White (Monocrome) :\

Everything else works fine my PC screen is full colour etc. The problem is only on various media players.

Any Suggestions?

Wish i could help, but when all my media players started playing things upside down i was stumped. Had to start using Winamp....(yuck)
You could try that, it was the only thing that kept working.

Got it sorted in the end

Reloaded all the Graphics drivers and re installed Direct X

Me thinks it was a Direct X problem. :)

if you want a player that will play anything with never a problem get VLC media player

its free and the best damn media player out there.

also you prolly dont have all the codecs you need either, get this pack
