    Isn't this driver issue? Have you tried other sets? Or codec problem maybe? Try third party Video player with built-in codec(such as GOM)and see if that makes any difference. Or simply trading in for my inferior but perfect working card

    Does indeed sound like the dreaded contrast bug.

    I fixed mine with a reinstall of the drivers, but even those are really flaky.
