Default No Video at all

Hi All

When I try to watch any video mpeg, avi, etc whether it be streaming or a dvd played on power dvd, wmp or real player. I can hear sound but get a blank screen then my computer makes a warning beep and freezes. I then have to turn off by the mains.

This all started when I updated the video card driver. I updated because my video card would not display 3D graphics correctly this solved the problem but presented me with a new one!

I reverted to the old drivers, which fixed the video problem but not the 3D graphics.

Any suggestions what this could be?
