What software are you using to play your videos? This sounds like a codec problem.

In the mean time you can use this free video player, VLC. No codec is required to run this player and it support one of the widest range of video formats compared to other players.

Try getting this Windows Media Codecs from Microsoft.

Are you using the latest version of VLC? What video format are you trying to play when this happens?

I use community combined codec. It has many codecs in one simple installer.

Hmm... VLC cannot use external codecs so try changing the Video Output.

Go to tools >> Preferences

Let's try to disable Accelerated video output/Overlay video output which can be found under Tools >> Preferences and then choosing Video.

After you have unticked the Accelerated video output, press Save to save VLC settings and restart VLC after that to make sure changes are enabled.
