    I can't seem to play any video no matter what player ot codecs I use. I am specifically trying to play some WMV files and some MPEG files. They used to play but don;t anymore. The only thing that happened was that I deleted my previous ATI Catalyst drivers and installed the new version 5.1 cleanly. Can someone please help me?

    Thanks
