|I installed a game, earth 2150. It wants to install media player. I guess this is just to play the intro movie, that doesn't work anyway.|
So I let it install windows media player and the default stuff that came with it "mpeg-4" codec" "midi-file" and other stuff like that.
For some reason after this, my graphics are all funky, any and all images have shadows of some kind that point right and alternate dark and light.
My simple solid colored backdrop looks all wavy and weird while loading. Likewise when I highlight text, there are dark and light wavy patterns that go up and down in the highlight.
I can't imagine how the game and media player install would have anything to do with this, but it started immediately after it, so it must be connected. I have tried uninstalling the media player, (it will only allow me to revert to a earlier version) and the game- Earth 2150, but that did not fix it. I even tried uninstalling the codec, though online instructions for this didn't exactly fit, it had no effect as well.(though I don't know for sure if I even managed to uninstall the codec)
A picture of the problem as I see it, I hope it shows in the picture. Another one for thoroughness.
I see it lists some random manufacturer for my computer, well ignore that. I built this PC myself. Except it wouldn't let me leave that blank. I tried putting "built myself" but it didn't take for some reason.
