    Hardware Acceleration on Full Makes Videos and Movies Appear in Black and White

    I have been having this issue all day. I have uninstalled and reinstalled my video drivers, used older drivers, used the latest forceware drivers, uninstalled all my codecs, everything I can think of to fix this issue.

    If I put the hardware acceleration on the middle one that disable directdraw and direct3D acceleration, the color comes back. I have installed DirectX 9.0b..

    I have tried 3 different video players, and all produce the same results.. unless I move video acceleration down, it plays in black and white...

    If I do move it down, it plays in color but it becomes really choppy...

    Any ideas?

    Have you ever had this problem before? Because it could be Direct X 9.0b. Why don't you try rolling back to a older DX version?

    Try the DriverHeaven "Drive Cleaner"

    BTW, i presume you uninstalled the drivers via add/remove , and not via device manager.

    I'll give the driver cleaner a try. I used hardware manager, and add/remove. Just to see if it made a difference.

    I figured this might be a driver problem because I've never had this issue b4. It started after I hooked my television up via TV-out.

    I always use Driver Cleaner whenever it's time to upgrade video card drivers.
