if you are using nvidia drivers 77.72 do this
NVIDIA Overlay gamma controls under Standard mode do not work
properly, resulting in overly dark or overly bright video.
To work around this issue:
1 From the NVIDIA control panel, click the Color Correction menu tree
2 From the Color Correction page, click the Apply color changes to list
arrow and select All, then click Restore Defaults.
3 Click Apply.
I've seen so many threads on so many different forums (neowin at least 2) about this issue it's crazy. I hope Nvidia fixes it soon (like EP said) but the work around isn't that difficult and I can wait.
that makes sense. I was thinking that since I only use the same pack and uninstall and reinstall everytime that that is why I don't get any conflicts. From now on though I will make sure that after my next format and reinstall of windows I'll just get the codecs I need.
Just because I haven't had any problems doesn't mean they won't show up at some point. Thanks for the advice Johnny and Netryder
