I have not seen compression fail in a long time. I'd guess that you have more problems. What it seems to me is that your data is corrupted and it should not have been. Corrupted by some data flow in computer issue.

I might try looking at the display driver, most times you just change back to vga and reboot. It should then say it found new hardware. . Most times you ignore that and follow the video card's installer.

Guess you could boot to xp cd and try repair in worse case.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
