I have a new pc (HP Core 2


I have a new pc (HP Core 2 Duo, E6300, 2 gig RAM).

I have calibrated my monitor and photos are spot-on.

My video files (.avi files) are all dark and almost unwatchable. I just captured fresh video tonight and noticed it for the first time. I tried Pinnacle and then Nero and both have same darkness on-screen.
I viewed old files that I know are not dark (at least not on my other computer). What could be wrong?

p.s. When I watch a video from ITunes (or a video tutorial somewhere else on the Web), no darkness. It seems to be just my saved video clips.

Thanks in advance for any advice and ideas!
