Default Sound but no video on all video files.

I ran to this problem after trying a few video editors (AviSynth, StaxRip, VirtualDub, DVX, SUPER, and AviDemux). They were supposed to be okay, all of them recommended by the afterdawn forum or However, one of them messed something up.

GSpot shows everything normally and claim that the codecs are installed, but the problem exists with every single videofile, all of which worked flawlessy before.

I uninstalled all video-related programs, even the ones that worked perfectly before this mishap. I've tried system restore, uninstalling all codecs, temporarily removing all Windows/System32 entries displayed by Gspot, removing (with drivercleaner) and re-installing videocard drivers, removing all video related program entries with RegSupreme Pro, trying different codec packs, even using VLC player that is supposed to use it's own drivers instead of the ones installed in windows.

All players (MPC, WMP, AviPreview, VLC) do resize themselves to the correct size, but the image is just plain black. And sound is playing fine.

I am not going to reinstall windows because of this, too much time and effort has been put in keeping the windows working well. And other than this, it works marvellously.

Okay, problem solved. This is extremely embarassing considering that I do know quite a bit about these things.

I had tested my video card with both analog and digital cables. I left the analog mode on in my monitor, so my video card sends the video signal only to the primary screen, which is the digital one.

I am so embarrassed. Oh my god.
