    I don't know much about this issue. But to get better assistance some basic facts would help others to help you... What computer? What OS? What software were you using? Etc.

    Specs would help.

    I don't think rendering would affect anything.

    Check the cable?

    How old is the screen? Are you sure it isn't the backlight going out?

    If you start up from the install disks, does it play normally? If so, try verifying your disk using the Disk Utility provided on these disks. :)

    Maybe your video software has left a huge temporary file on your hard disc and you've got no space left on it for page-outs, memory swopping etc. Maybe....
