    Hi Dennis,

    It is possible that the video resolution is high that's why your graphics card driver is having a hard time playing the video. We suggest updating the latest graphics card driver of your PC.

    To update your graphics card driver, follow these steps:

    • Click on Windows logo.
    • Type Device Manager then Click it from the list that appears.
    • Look for Display adapters category, right click on it and choose Update Driver.
    • Select Search automatically for updated driver software.
    • If it fails, go to the manufacturer's website and follow their detailed instructions.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.

    Discolored messed up display after updating graphics card driver

    Hi Kevin,

    The issue that you're experiencing usually happens if the latest driver installed encountered an issue with the system. We would like to know the following to isolate the issue:

    • From where did you download the latest update for your driver?
    • Is it from your manufacturer's website or from Windows update?
    • Have you tried using the older version of the driver?

    As an initial troubleshooting, we suggest uninstalling the latest driver using the steps below:

    • Open Cortana.
    • Search Device Manager and click it.
    • Expand the Display Adapter section.
    • Find the Display card Driver.
    • Right click the Display card Driver and select Uninstall.
    • Select the check box delete the driver software for this device.
    • Afterwards, restart the computer. Restarting the computer usually reinstall the generic driver from Windows update.

    If anything comes up, don't hesitate to get back to us anytime.
