View Full Version : Vertical Lines on Videos?

11 November 2003, 06:00 AM
Recently I got a virus(which is now gone(I hope)) that corrupted most of my install files.
Now whenever I play a avi or mpeg file there are vertical black lines running over the video. Its not the actuall video that has the lines, the players putting them on top.

Any ideas?
(Win XP, Window media player and other players)

sounds like a corrupt video driver or codec. Try reinstalling either one. Though with Media Player, ur gonna have a hard time getting rid of it and installing it .... unless you're using an older version that you can upgrade to v. 9.

Thanks for the suggestions - now why didnt I think of asking a week ago?!?

I upgraded to player 9 (looks alot better than 8) but the lines were still there.
So I then installed my video card software, and now the lines are across my whole screen(there a nice green colour :beer: )
So I suppose its my new screen playing up. So ill get my old screen back :thumbsup:

Thanks for the help! :bowdown:
