video players picture too dark

Hi I have been looking for a Media player that will play my files and have tried many...perhaps that is the problem, because despite uninstalling all tried programs a videoplayer such as Gom (or any player) displays a very dark picture requiring me to set brightness to max....

I have had a very similar problem before but found the level control in ffdshow had somehow been set low giving a dark picture....I dont seem to be able to get the Video icon of FFDSHOW to display in the taskbar so I can click on it to check to see if levels are low...I have run Mplayer that comes as a standalone and also as comes in K-lite Codec Pack.

anyone got any ideas

thanks fos
