Win media & Real player video probs

Both win media 9 and Real player 9 only play a few seconds of video media before screen goes black. Audio continues with no probs. Wmp was the first player to do it so I down loaded Real player and files would play, but now Real player is doing exactly the same thing?? Have disabled my zone alarm pro firewall and panda anti virus but both still will not play video. Have downloaded all codecs I can find with no luck.

Would appreciate any help.

cheers. R

Only thing that springs to mind. Do you have the latest version of your graphics card drivers installed?

Also check you have the latest version of "DirectX"

Big Thankyou, NightRyder.

Turns out it was Directx....
