Well, when I used to open videos, they had crystal clear quality, but yesterday when I opened the same file, suddenly everything looked fuzzy; the thing was full of minuscule distorting dots. Anybody know what happened?

Could be a number of issues :

1) Did you try another movie, same file type?
2) Which player do you use?
3) Is for the rest your monitor ok?

Yup, I tried another file which with the same file type, then I tried other file types, rm, flv, mp4 etc. But they still have bad quality.
I normally use Real Player for movies, but I tried winamp and jetaudio and a few others, but still bad quality.

And rest of my moniter is normal, no blotches here or anything.

Are these videos from the internet? If so, you might want to consider the source the problem. If it's a streaming video, try saving it to your drive first, then viewing it.

If not, do you have a video that you had stored on your hard drive or some place else that you know looked fine before, but doesn't look fine now? If it looked ok before, but doesn't look ok now, what's the last thing that you installed (software or hardware). Have you uninstalled anything recently (software or hardware, specially a media player of any sort)?

Let us narrow down the problem. Try to play a video online and one downloaded. After you have done that go to eventviewer (START RUN type eventvwr) and look for white crosses in red dots in any of the three chapters you see there.

Also post which video card you have including which version of drivers.

No crosses.

How do I check my Video card/drivers?
