have you installed any sort of display software since you last watched the clip? is it only this clip thats changed or are there others which could mean it may be your hardware.

naw, its the only clip (set of 3 actually) that give me that flourescent green. I installed windows 98 SE since last time watching but Im hesitent to believe its that as every other clip on my computer works fine. As far as I know I have all needed codecs (and some I dont need) so its rather odd situation.

Stop thinking about it. It sounds weird. The best way to get rid of a silly meaningless problem is to format your hard drive. Good luck:)
