Have you tried another movie player such as Realplayer? My computer does the same thing with Windows Media Player but Realplayer works fine with the same movies.

It's not the drivers and the player is fine. I've had this problem with a few installs of MP10

Open a video (avi,wmv,etc) in Media Player.
Open the enhancements tab and go to the Video color settings.
Now shake the dials up and down a bit then reset them to normal.

They should be working fine now.

For some reason the video is really dark to begin with it's some sort of bug with either the MS Codecs or Media Player 10. Can really put a damper on your Pr0n.
