no picture in windows media player

I recently formatted and re-installed windows XP, now when i try to play a movie clip i get the sound but no picture, on some of the movies i try it says at the bottom "error downloading codec" others it says nothing but always sound and no picture and some others wont even try to open. They all worked ok before the format so what has gone wrong.

i have been to microsoft and downloaded media player9, still the same. i am baffled

any ideas anyone

You could try the Klite mega codec pack click here from here i use it and i havent found a film that wont run,it gives you options of what you wont to install it has players as well so just untick those and leave the codecs.
