Help please! When playing a DVD I have the audio but not the video. All I get
is a black screen. I am up to date on the codecs and drivers. Any help would
be greatly appreciated.

Reinstall your DVD decoding software... usually PowerDVD or WinDVD,
whichever came with your PC.

and ensure you have overlay in the monitor you are watching it on.

I did that and now I dont even get the black screen...WMP says that I should
decrease colors and screen resolution and I did that, and I still get the
same message. I had audio before but not now. Any other idea's?

I don't know what that means. How would I go about doing that?

It will be in the advanced section of the graphics card properties, r/click
blank desktop and choose properties.
Do you have the latest graphics card drivers installed from the graphics
card manufacturer, or laptop manufacturer if a laptop?
