I have no idea what the problem is. I'm thinking it might just be the fact that my computer is pretty old. I moved into the place I'm currently living and the previous tenant had thrown it out. It's a Gateway Solo 1450.

As you can see, I was using VLC player to play a .wmv file.. and this was the result. This happens all the time with various types of files. Instead of normal colors, the video is composed of bright, neon, psychedelic colors. I'm at a loss.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Chris

edit: Sorry if something similar has been asked.. i just had no idea how to phrase the problem. Hence, the picture.

Looks like your display settings may be set too low.
Go to Control Panel, Display, Settings tab & check the color pallete. Looks like it might be set to 16 or 256 colors.
Set it higher & reboot. See if that takes care of it
In the beginning there was the command line.

yeah thats where the problem lies... and i think it's because my computer is too old. I can't change the resolution or colors displayed... i tried downloading an updated driver but i cant even figure out what kind of video card is on this thing. it's a gateway 1450 solo. :thumbsup:
