Video slows down during playback but not audio!

Had to do a fresh install of vista on my laptop, since then all movie files start ok but the video slows down during playback but the audio is normal. All movie files were on the original OS and played fine before! Please help, i only use it for viewing media really and now it's useless!

Have you had any luck with this. I have the same issue. I thought it might be the graphics card, but I have an nvidia card... so far, I have found that if I go into the task manager click on "showw processes from all users", then vind the svchost.exe with highest amount of memory usage and end that process, I can recoup the video speed. Sometimes I may have to do it twice, and then the video plays normal. It does bring some wierdness to the screen, like the start bar looks like windows 3.1, but it's the best I've come up with so far.

If anyone out there can help, please do so. It's so anoying.

I've managed to get round the problem not solve it by installing KMPlayer which uses preloaded codecs, plays everything perfect and very easy to use, just set default to open with this ok.
