Need help from the Windows geeks

Since I installed the new hard drive, I've had trouble viewing some videos. Some things are perfectly clear, no problemo, but most videos appear as some sort of mostly orange and green mess, which is tremendously annoying.

I know jack about how all this works. Any suggestions?

Thanks mucho.

Hmm... I'm out of my depth on the orange video but thanks for stopping by and the kind comments. Let me go search the tech sites for a minute.

Thanks so much! I'm going to download that patch and see if it works.

Here's hoping.

Hey - who would've thunk that MTV would do something beneficial for me! ;-)

If that patch didn't fix it for you, email me at my gmail address (stephennmcdonald@) and we can debug the codecs, basically a codec is software that decodes the video for translation to your screen; outdated or broken codecs can cause problems like this as well.

Good luck!
