Video playback colour problems.

Hello, I recently purchased a new Windows 7 computer and I have been having trouble with video playback. Specificly, the colour. When I play a video in Windows Media Player, QuickTime player, RealPlayer or any other media player the video is played in a blueish tint, and multiple artifacts sometimes present themselves. This problem also occours on web players such as YouTube, but only when on fullscreen mode. Does anybody think they could help resolve this issue?
Thankyou.

Hi.

Download and install the Driver Sweeper.

Download the most recent software\driver for your
NVIDIA .

Uninstall
nvidia software\driver,restart in Safe Mode,run driver sweeper,choose only NVIDIA-Display and clean,restart in normal mode.

Install the new nvidia software\driver,restart.

Update
DirectX .


Run
the
nvidia-video-card-test post here the results.

During test\stress monitor your GPU temperatures. If you see artifacts, or the temperature of your GPU exceeds 80C, stop the test.


I also noticed this in your specs,Memory 4GB (3.73GB Accessible) .


What exactly do you mean Accessible?


Windows 7 Home Premium x64 supports up to 16 GB of RAM.


So,"normally" all your ram must be accessible.

Click on Boot\Advanced options and check if you have set any memory limits.
