What NOW?



I cannot use *ANY* of my players
Winamp -- Shows nothing but a solid magenta screen (audio only) then gives an error message and shuts down
Windows Media -- Colors all fucked up and then when you turn it off gives you an error message
DIVX - tells me can't play an AVI file and then when you turn it off gives you an error message
VLC - Colors also all blue
Real Media - Colors all blue (But only plays .rm files anyway. And .rm files also all blue)

All of them are either not showing the picture AT ALL on my AVI files *OR* when I play them all the colors are like BLUE (Skin/Hair etc..)

I've just reinstalled ALL the codecs I could find on the web - updated ALL the players to the current versions trying to cure this sudden problem

This was working 2 weeks ago the ONLY thing I've installed since the last time I used the players was POSER 4 (and a crap load of it's plugins) on my computer.


what could be causing this? Anyone know how to troubleshoot this conflict?

Help me pretty please I'm LOST.

*whimpers -- I wanna catch up on my shows and Can't watch ANYTHING.

hmm, do you have a external video card? or is onboard? has your normal computer screen jusage have any problems/change? poser might have overridden some path of how video is read and that might be in issue. im not exactly sure what it would nuke exactly. would need to see it to try and fix it.

The video card is INSIDE I guess. Normal functionality visuals just fine. It's just when I try to watch avi's

THank you anonymous person

What I would recommend is to follow these three steps:

1) Run a virus scan. Hell, run two of them. If you have a program installed already, run that; then go to Trendmicro and run their online virus scan.

2) Run a spyware searching program like AdAware or Spybot, or both. (If you don't have one, go to Lavasoft to get AdAware)

3) Run a registry fixing tool, if the first two steps do not fix whatever is wrong.

I hope that helps some. ;;crosses fingers for luck for you;;

1.) Run a virus scan everyday @ 9Pm
2.) Have Spy Sweeper (Better than AdAware/Lavasoft) I had those, and when I got spy sweeper it found on the first scan 149 spybots LAVASOFT SUCKS. I've been running Spy Sweeper months now-- Runs ALWAYS in the background like Norton and des full sweep every Friday @ 8PM

It's not either of those thing my computer is clean as a whistle.
Something, some .dll file SOMEWHERE (I assume it's in POSER 4 or one of the Plugins for the program It's the ONLY thing I changed/added) I know is the cuplrit, I just don't know which ONE.

Do you have Windows Media Classic installed? I know that isn't going to fix the players you have that aren't working, but I find it's the one player that really does play everything for me.

*twitch* Ohhh god, glad I haven't installed Poser yet on my machine Xx;.

Like Spubba said, a rollback might help.. .dll files can be tricky bastards.

I haven't installed Poser yet either! glad I keep putting it off!
I'm so happy to see you are using the icon I fixed up for you! (Happy, Happy! Joy, Joy!)

X3! I was getting bored of my old one, and needed a bee one, soooooo... ^_^ Plus its cute!

close call for me!
I have not installed Poser yet! When you find out what is wrong with your system and how to fix it let me know so I can start using it too?
I really do not know much about how to fix shit that goes wrong with computers. I lived with a computer whiz (Jayme) for 3 years! I still don't know diddle squat about computers!
