Default Cant Create DirectDraw Surface

Hi all.

Since a couple of days i have problems with playing DivX / Xvid files.

the DivX player gives the message: Cant Open File
and the BsPlayer says: Cant Create DirectDraw Surface

then they quit.
my normal mediaplayer2 can play them somehow, but image is very poor (not worthy to watch).

what i did:
1. Un-installed all possible codecs
2. Un-installed Videocard drivers

Re-installed those 2 after reboot
and also re-installed DirectX with the newer version.

Still i get the same results.

Those DivX and Xvid movies where no problem in the past might i add.

If any1 knows what to do i would be very thankfull
