Perhaps the problem is with your media player, rather than the vid card/drivers.

You could try downloading another media player (Winamp for example), and using that to see if it gets fixed.

yeah check your monitor and make sure that the video card setting in the system properties are all good. if you're not sure just set everything there to default, nvidia has presets on some of their settings so you might have to play around for a little while in the system properties if the defaults dont fix it

It could be your monitor just doesnt play video well. Alot of LCds dont. Even the newest ones. What specific lcd do u have? So gaming and pictures are good?
