Default Media Player Question

When playing a video in Windows Media player, the sound works, but the video is just a green square. This was working 2 days ago, I have installed no applications or changed any hardware since then. Any ideas?

I had a similar issue (except my screen would blink green and back to the movie) when my video card fried.

I can play games no problem, and the 3D textures are fine.

The videos play fine in iTunes and Quicktime, but I prefer Media Player, it doesn't seem like a video card issue.
