Exclamation blue screen when using "xv" video output


I got a new monitor recently and I installed it properly, made changes in my xorg.conf, set refresh rate etc...

The only problem is that when I choose to play video (in any player, xine, mplayer, gmplayer, totem) I got a semi blue screen. (Half the vedeo is a blue screen)

Here is my xorg.conf file:
Code:
Section "Module"

    Load        "dbe"  	# Double buffer extension

    SubSection  "extmod"
      Option    "omit xfree86-dga"   # don't initialise the DGA extension
    EndSubSection

# This loads the font modules
    Load        "type1"
    Load        "freetype"
    Load        "speedo"

# This loads the GLX module
    Load       "glx"
    Load       "dri"
EndSection


Section "Files"


    RgbPath	"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"


    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local/"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic/"

    EndSubsection
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       16
        Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubsection

Anything else that I need to mention?
