Help - DvDs playing black/white on my Pc



Hi there

I was wondering if anyone can help me with a problem I am having.

I have a Pc with WinXP Pro SP2 and when I play a dvd movie, the dvd only plays in black/white. This happens no matter what dvd playback software I use be it Power DvD, Win DvD or Windows Media Player.

Has anyone come across this before?

Kind Regards



black and white on your monitor or on your external attached tv?


Hi there

It’s coming up black/white on my monitor.

The monitor itself is ok as it works on my main pc. I also swapped out my dvd player from my other pc to this one and same thing happens.

It’s a mystery.

Kind Regards



black and white is a matter of software not hardware issue, I am sure there is a conflict. Try using VLC . It is free and it is self sufficient


yes i have the same problem if you can help PLZ
