Hello, I am a computer technician, so I am not dense, and I know what I am talking about.

Anyway, to get to the point, all videos I view on my computer come up with some shade of pink.

DivX, Winamp, Windows Media Player, Quicktime, everything.

Internet explorer, opera, firefox, and just plain viewing of files is affected.

I am 100% sure that I have no virii, trojans, spyware, ad-ware, or any kind of malware, for that matter.

A reformat of the drive right now is out of the question.

I have no clue why the reason might be, I tried installing new codecs, reinstalling quicktime, winamp, windows media player, everything, but to no previal. I am in desperate need of help... Any ideas?

P.S I'm running windows xp media center edition, and I have the most recent drivers for my video card (GeForce 6800)

A screenshot of one occurance:


I have tried a wide range of videos, and it's all the same.

Since it happens in all of the programs I'd suspect that it's either a problem with your video card (or it's settings), or with your monitor.

Try another monitor, maybe degauss your current monitor. Are the nVidia video drivers WHQL certified? Maybe try a repair install?
