    i posted this on another forum... didnt really get much help... heres what ive found out so far........

    I restarted my computer, and clicked on some movies that I downloaded to watch them and all I got was a blank screen with sound...

    i played some more file video types and got the same thing...
    this one time i opened up a clip video and it left an icon on my desktop in a text file titled dxva_ or some crap.. i forgot the file name...

    keep in mind i have the latest WMP, I have the latest XP Codec Pack, the latest K-Lite Codec Pack, Latest DivX player, Latest Media Player Classic... direct x 9.0c . latest video card drivers.... EVERYTHING WORKED 100% BEFORE!

    can somebody please help

    appreciate it..
    the file that appeared on my desktop was Dxva_sig.txt


    on windows media player 11, i went to options -> performance -> clicked on 'restore defaults' -> advanced... -> unchecked 'use overlays' AND THE VIDEOS PLAYED.... but i still get the same problem with MEDIA PLAYER CLASSIC ....

    the problem seems to be only for WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER's.....

    I was getting the same file <dxva_sig> appear on my desktop when I was using my WMP. Also had problems playing some videos, mainly wmv file types. The WMP screen would show blotchy bright colours but sound was OK.


    My video card, ATI Radeon X1300PRO, uses PCIe so I disabled AGP Texture Acceleration in DirectX.

    Star - Run - dxdiag

    Open Display tab and disable 'AGP Texture Acceleration' in DirectX Features.
