How to fix Quicktime video color problems on nVidia chipset and Windows XP?

My laptop frequently plays video as if in very low-color mode. Though the sound remains clear, it looks terrible, showing only a few shades of red, blue, or yellow. (It's even worse than 8-bit color.) The problem doesn't happen consistently, so I'm looking for troubleshooting advice or known solutions.

"What applications have you been using immediately prior to experiencing the problem with the video?

It could be that one of your other applications is leaving the display in an ""unset"" (for want of a better word) state, which is why changing to 16 bit and back to 32 bit colour fixes the problem."
