Videos nothing but solid green - help!

Q: Videos nothing but solid green - help!

I'm running a self made AthlonXP 2600+ system, 1GB RAM, with a GeForce FX 5600 256 MB Video Card.

I have WinXP Pro SP2, with Media Player 11, QT 7, the latest Nvidia drivers, all MS updates, and a newly installed Divx codec.

I've been having this problem for a while, and can't figure out a solution, thought I'd run it by the experts here:

Whenever I run any kind of video file, after several minutes, the video becomes a solid green(but sound runs fine), and my system runs very slow until I close the video. Then, all video I try to watch is solid green until I restart the computer. The issue happens with WMP and QT, and seems to happen with all video file types. This leads me to think it could be a hardware or settings issue. Like I said, I've fully updated everything, and have tried playing with the Hardware Accelleration setting in the Advanced Display Properties, no avail.

Any ideas or suggestions? I'd be grateful for any help.

Preferred Solution: Videos nothing but solid green - help!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


Any video I've tried to watch online today has appeared only as a green box, instead of the video itself. Audio still comes through fine. Videos played fine until today. Could it have something to do with my running the install program for a "preview release of Flash Player" for 64-bit systems? link -> http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html Any help appreciated.

A:Online videos appear solid green

Hi, and welcome to TSF!

I would say it could definitely have something to do with that. Go to the URL below and download/install the most recent (stable) build of flash player and get back to us.

Hello, everyone,

Since I am not sure whether this is a driver, software or hardware problem, I decided to start by posting in this general discussion forum. Please feel free to move it if you feel some other place is more appropriate.

I upgraded to Windows 7 shortly after purchasing a new PC late last year. I am using an ASUS P7P55D motherboard, ASUS NVIDIA GeForce 9600GSO graphics card, and a ViewSonic VA720 LCD monitor.

The issue that has stumped me since I got this new computer is that about 33% of the time when the computer initiates the monitor (when coming out of standby or hibernation or when starting the computer), I will see the desktop for about 1 second and then the screen will go black. If I turn the monitor off and on again, I will see the image for another second and then it may or may not go black again. The interesting thing is that the power light on the LCD is still a solid green (it goes orange if no signal is detected). Therefore, the LCD supposedly is still getting a signal, but it does not display anything. Other than not being able to see anything, the computer and Windows 7 operates normally.

If I turn the monitor off and then on, it will either stay on another second before going black or actually stay on, in which case I go about my day. Sometimes this takes 5-6 tries of turning the monitor on or off. Other times I give up and use these 1-second intervals to turn the computer off with my mouse (or restart blindly with the ...

greetings all,

i recently built a server using a SAS HBA card with 4 sas drives (1 is a hotspare). all in a SYS-7045B supermicro server. The green LED indicator is a solid green where as in any other server, the green light blinks on 'n off which indicates "activity". I have no idea if this is "normal" so my curiousity made me call supermicro themselves and ask if this behavior was normal. They said "we have these servers here in use and have the same behavior with no issues what so ever, this is normal."

does anyone else here use SAS drives? if so, i'm just curious to know if anyone else is experiencing this type of behavior.

I have Windows XP and every video that plays has little green specks/lines/dots on it. the videos themselves are not corrupt, as I recieved them from a friend whose computer played them perfectly. This also occurs on DVD's, DIVX, and some 3d game intro videos. The specks usually appear in the dark areas of the video and last from a split second up to 5 seconds. I've updated my Allinwonder radeon 8500 to the latest drivers, and the update went through flawlessly. is this a video card problem, ram problem, or as I hope, simply a software problem?

I have a problem I've been dealing with for a while - and its really starting to annoy me.

I've reinstalled windows, updated video card drivers, directX, everything I can think of.
My problem is that when I'm playing videos (ether AVI's, DivX, MPEG, MPEG4) etc it randomly goes green.. what it does is the video turns a solid green from top left to bottom right corners, and then the remaining top section fills in - and its a solid green so you cant see anything behind it.. The sound keeps going, but the system kinda struggles (well it seems to)
I have this problem in Media Player, iTunes, Quicktime, basically whatever i can play videos in. I'm doubting it would be a dodgy codec, I'm assuming it would almost have to be the video card but I'm not sure..

Specs of the system are:
Windows XP Home SP2
nVidia FX5200 Video
AMD Duron 1.3Ghz
Monitor - I doubt this is needed but its a 19" Sony LCD.

Hello I know very little about computers. Anyways my PC won't videos. They will begin fine and a couple of seconds into it, the screen will just turn all green. This happens on any video I try. On youtube it doesn't turn green but it just stops after a few seconds and never starts again. I don't know if these things are related. I tried to uninstall flash player and re-install the Adobe flash player 12 plugin (I don't know if I need the active x ). That didn't work. Oh and when I try to download something it takes an incredibly long amount of time, like it will get to the last 99% and just stop. I mostly work on chrome and I know it has its own built in flash player but then why do the videos play green? I tried firefox and it also happens on there. I tried to unclick the "enable hardware acceleration" on the video settings because I read somewhere to try that. That didn't work. I disabled the quicktime plugins (just to see what that would do) and that did nothing. I'm at my wits end. I have no idea what to do or what I'm doing. I would really appreciate some help. Thank you in advance. This is information about my PC,but like everything else, I don't know what any of it means.

You could try updating video drivers.

Most likely it's your video drivers have you installed a new graphics card or anything like that, or how long have you had your graphics card?

Hey, I have recently been having problems watching videos online. I watch a lot of anime but there have been a couple issues trying to watch them. One thing that sometimes happens is the video will go green (just the video not my whole screen) and then fast forward itself. Another thing that happens is that the video will just freeze and act like its buffering but no amount of time seems to be enough. This is true for every site i have tried and it even happens on youtube. I tried using internet explorer and videos dont even try to load there. Pleae help!!!

Make sure you have the very latest version of the Adobe Flash Player.

I think its a codec issue, you may have had the correct codecs before you reinstalled.

What codecs have you installed since you put the OS on, the most popular is Divx and Xvid, do a google on them to find the websites.

My girlfriend recently purchased a new laptop with Windows 10 preinstalled. We've since upgraded the drivers and had to deal with a few driver failure problems which have now (hopefully) been resolved, but we're left with this issue:

Quite frequently when watching Youtube videos, this kind of visual distortion will occur. Does anyone know how we might narrow down the possible causes?

I've looked around and similar problems were previously resolved by enabling hardware acceleration on the old Flash player, but since Youtube uses the HTML5 player by default now, that's not an option (or cause).

Any help is appreciated.

This is a kinda new laptop, and apparently. I've already updated all the Network & Display drivers.
Yet, most videos are usually not rendering properly or go on a dark green screen.
In the occassion that they do render, they render improperly and have to buffer a lot.
(Yes, I've already disabled hardware acceleration)
THIS NEVER HAPPENED on my other computers, I'm using the same internet and ISP I've used for years now, nothing has changed, but the computer.
Oh, and it's not just videos.
Internet is slightly slower in this computer as well. I can't manage to download anything too!
I can't download executable files either, every single one I've tried to download, gets stuck at 99.9% and doesn't finish, doesn't matter which browser, I've tried all, and I just can't download EXEs.
Actually scratch that
I can't download anything anymore. Not just Exes, but a lot of other things too get stuck and chrome says "Network Error".
What's wrong? 
This laptop didn't do this the first week I used it, why is it doing this now?
Could it be a malware?

Thought I had this issue resolved a while back. I have a Toshiba laptop using an AMD A4-5000 processor w/Radeon HD Graphics running at 1.5Ghz. with 6GB onboard, 500GB hard drive. Running Windows 8.1. All drivers are updated. I run disk defrag, malware, spyware, adware, and virus scanning on regular basis.

Problem first came up last year shortly after I installed Netflix. Both Netflix and video's on Facebook would show up a pea soup green color, play sound and that's it. As I said, thought I had this fixed. Did some research on Google. The fix was suppose to be going to IE's Internet Options>Advanced and then making sure the very first box was checked off making sure that it selected to "use software rendering instead of gpu rendering".

This green screen has been happening more and more lately. Today, I even checked Media Player as well. Classic wouldn't load avi's, mpeg4, ect. Just gave a black screen. The newer video player that Windows 8.1 uses, played the video, but very choppy. Spent most of the morning here going over all the settings to see if anything else can be done. Suggestions?

So, lately I've been having this problem when watching any videos online. Usually it comes without a warning, suddenly in the middle of watching the screen turns solid green and the sound cuts off. The computer is totally unresponsive and the only thing that works is forcing a shutdown using the power button. Sometimes I get these green flickering stripes on the upper side of the screen too, while watching videos.

Only happens with videos, no matter which browser I use. Happens with both Netflix and Amazon Video, haven't tried other sites yet. Never happens while gaming or doing anything else. No error messages of any kind, just the solid green colour, and the event viewer only shows the unexpected shutdown I did myself with the power button.

Oh, and not sure if relevant or related but the problems started after I got a new hard drive. Before that everything worked fine for 2 years. Any ideas on how to fix this would be much appreciated!

Hi, I have an AMD Radeon HD 4870 card, prior to updating to 13.1 legacy drivers, 12.6 was working perfectly for me. However, after updating to 13.1 legacy drivers, videos can't play properly, they just show a green screen, and it happens to all sources: Online video players, Windows Media Player, Media Player Classic Home Cinema, VLC player. I wish to ask, anyone has any ideas what options are added to the control center i 13.1 legacy drivers, and how to solve this issue. Or, anyone would be kind to provide me the links to 12.6 legacy drivers. normal drivers will not work for my graphic card, only legacy drivers are working. I can't find any links myself . thanks in advance.

So I've had Firefox for well over three years now, and I've NEVER had issues watching videos until now. The picture below should be self explanatory of what the issue is:

There's these strange pink distortions of the video overlying a green bar. I have tried the following:

Updating Flash

Turning off hardware acceleration under the flash settings

Neither of these yielded any change. Any idea what the issue might be?

EDIT: I'm running Windows Vista x64 SP2, The browser is Firefox.

A:[SOLVED] Strange green/pink bars over web videos (Firefox)

Hi, welcome to TSF

Are you using the latest stable version of Firefox or are you on the alpha/beta channel? (click Help>About to see details if you're not sure)

When you tried disabling hardware acceleration, did you refresh the page to reload the video?

Have you updated your chipset/graphics drivers recently, and did you reboot after installing?

Do you have this problem in any other browsers?

When you updated Flash, did you install both the IE and non-IE versions?

EDIT: I see you've got a Video2MP3 addon installed. Try disabling it and restarting Firefox, or update it to the latest version.

A:Pc issue, Browser super slow and videos are green screening

Hi I don't remember recently updating or changing my Flash player in any way.

However, for a week now I have been getting green/pink areas in any YouTube video I try to play. Problem is not only pertaining to YT and occurs with videos on other websites such as the BBC news site.

I already reinstalled the latest version of Adobe Flash player and restarted PC with no success. Any ideas what could be causing this?

This occurs regardless if I view videos in full-screen mode or embedded, etc.

Well IMHO. That looks more like a graphics card problem ,try updating your gfx drivers first, Last time I had a problem like this my gfx failed.
