media player not playing clear veideos

Hello, I am trying to play the video that comes with windows 7, the wildlife one. But whenever I play it it's unclear and everything seems to be red outlines and dull. It's also like this for other videos aswell. I just tried installing windows seven shark codecs but that didn't help. Thanks.

thanks for the snip. a several solution for you

1.Check for video card driver updates from your vendor, and/or DirectX updates from WindowsUpdate.
2.If that doesn't help, turn down your hardware acceleration.
3.Open WMP's Tools:Options:Performance:Advanced menu dialog. First try turning off overlays, and then if that does not help, turn off the Video Mixing Renderer.

hope this helps

From asus website "Splendid Video Enhancement analyze the video data, and fine-tune the properties according to human's perceptive favor. Video will then be output through ASUS VGA Cards, and of course, the result is made more vivid, lively and Splendid!! Go for Splendid, bring each pixel come to life."

Engrish aside, it soulds like it was doing the exact opposite.

ASUS UnSplended!
