I recently reinstalled my win2k, downloaded all service packs, along with WMP 9.0.
Whenever I play a video file (mov, avi, mpeg) the image goes gray (so does the “black background” in the player window).
Looks like: contrast –50, brightness +50.
It doesn’t matter which application I’m using – WMP, QT … all behave in the same way.
What is more interesting that in QT as long as I don’t resize the player window everything looks OK. When I resize it the image loses contrast.
I restored all the default settings for the video card and display preferences in win2K. Nothing.
