For sopme reason, as of today, every movie I play on my computer is dark, but if I upload it on to youtube or whatever, the brightness is normal... Any suggestions as to what could be wrong?

Specs:
AMD Athlon 64 3500+
BFG Tech GeForce 7300GS OC
1GB DDR SDRAM
200GB HD
Windows XP MCE
Everything is up to date with the latest drivers.

What was the last thing you did on your computer before the problem started?

Nothing new, just went to google, youtube, you know, the internet in general.

I uninstalled the display drivers for my old ATI Integrated graphics, but I don't think that really matters, does it?

Sounds like you need to adjust the brightness or contrast on your moniter. But if its fine on youtube im not sure.

Give that a try anyways and see what happens.

It's really weird, everything else I do is fine, but watching movies is screwed.

Maybe it's the actual program that you're watching them through?

What program are you using to watch your movies?

Try a system restore. You might have togged an option down that does this.
