Windows 7: Blue & Washed out Video

Blue & Washed out Video

Hey everyone,

I upgraded to Windows 7 Professional a week or so, and since then I really have not had a chance to watch any movies on it. I went to load up a movie today and everything is.. well, blue?

I'm not sure what could be causing this. All skin tones are bluish, with lips being green. Its almost photo negative. The same goes for my Skype video chats as well. The person I'm talking too is all blue.

This happened in both Windows Media Player 12, and the most recent VLC player as well.

Games run perfectly fine.

I'm running a Nvidia GeoForce 9500 with the most recent drivers ( I checked ) and I've double checked my color calibration as well as my monitor calibration.

Could a lack of a Codec Pack be doing this?

I can provide any other info that might be required.

Very strange, the blue is washed out on one of my LCDs
As you can see in the pic, the LCD to the left is missing the blue. It looks washed out. This happened randomly. So far I tried reinstalling the ATI 10.4 driver and pressed the auto-adjust button on the LCD but nothing has changed.
