Default sound but no video

today i tried to load some internet videos. some asked for a plugin. whenever i clicked on the blank screen with the green puzzle piece to let my comp search for the appropriate files to download to play the videos, my comp said it couldnt find the necessary files and gave an option of a manual install. media player and quicktime wont play the videos, however, and google video will work. any suggestions?

~Dell XPS M1710
~2.16Ghz Intel Core Duo T2600
~2048 MB DDR2 @ 667Mh
~7900 GTX 512
~Media Center

Install K-Lite codec, should give you all..well not all but a lot of codecs so you could watch almost any video.
