Graphics Problem

by OrionLeingod / June 26, 2005 8:45 PM PDT

Alright, well i just installed windows on a new hard drive since my old one died.

Now as far as i know, ive insatlled all my video drivers, all the ones that came with the video card, ive installed the latest nVidia drivers i got from there, site, i have service pack 2 installed, i got all the normal settings, i have all the usual codecs: divix, nemo codec pack, windows codec pack, etc. I also have installed Windows Media Player 10

Even with all this im still getting some intresting stuff hapening in terms of the graphics.

For one, i cant watch videos in Media Player 10. i dont know how to describe what happens, so heres a picture of it:

Now the other problem im having, is with my icons. Once again cant describe it, so heres a picture:
its that black stuff around it. Happens to all of them

Now i use TGT soft style xp, so if that might be causing it, let me know.

As for my video card, i have a Gainward nVidia GeForce FX 5200 128mb w/tv out

Test and check

Did you fiddle with the FX5200 setting and see what they are and try to tweak it abit or maybe accept basic defaults and take it from there. Make sure it acknowlegdes what the monitor/lcd and video card is installed. Further, as this TGT is unknown to me, simply try w/o it if possible and check results, if a problem tweak it or live w/o it or replace it another similar pgm.

Ok i fixed the video. I was going through all the settings in nVidia, and i found for some reason, all i had to do, was turn the gama all the way down.

But the icon problem is still happening.
