Exclamation DVD Playback Green!

This morning I got ready to begin my day of watching movies and doing nothing.
So i got a stack of 3 or 4 DVD's and turned on my computer. I opened the disk drive and popped in American Beauty.

Autoplay asks if i want to play it in WMP11 or WMC, I click Media Center. The window opens and remains black for a second while it loads the menu, but when it comes up the menu is bright green. I still can hear the music, but all I can see is green.

So I close WMC and open Media Player, again it loads the video as green!

So I figure it might be the disk, so I take it out and pop in Bullitt, it asks me and this time I say Media Player, again green. So open Media Center. green.

I plugged I my external drive, and did the exact same thing with both disks, with the same results.

I unplugged the HDMI cord from the DVI adapter in my monitor and plugged it back in, didn't help.

I unplugged the other end from my video card, didn't help.

Anything else I should try?

I'm running Vista Ultimate x64
4GB DDR2 RAM
Both drives are Multi-layer DVD-RW
DiVX Codec is Installed
AC3filter Audio Codec software is installed

Download the K-lite Codec pack here

This should solve the issue

Better yet, download VLC.

VLC works, I tried the codec pack, Mega and x64 version.

I'll update some stuff later to try to get my card to work

Glad it works. You shouldn't need the codec pack with it IIRC.
