Hello experts

I got a problem with Windows Media Player, When i play video i can hear sound but not the video.
This happen with any DVD Movie, any video that i have in the hard drive, any video, AVI, MPEG,  etc.

First it happen with Windows Media Player v 9.0 Then i updated to the version 10 cus i have WinXP
Nothing happen, then i thought that it might be some issue relate to some video codec, but that din't fix it.
I install the XP Codec Pack latest version and some many other video codec to see if i can fix the problem
But i end up giving up, i even format my system and install a fresh copy of Windows XP, but nothing work.

I have tried all that I thought that can fix this issue, But nothing seen to work.with all the things i done.

Please Help!
