Default Quake 4 and Quake 2 white screen problems

Hey guys, when I fire up any ID game, such as Quake 4 or Quake 2, I get a white screen, but I hear the Rsven, and ID logos in the background.
I just finsihed playing Quake 4 and now for some reason when I want to run it I always get this. I uninstalled Quake 4 and reinstalled it but its the same issue.
Any ideas?

If your talking about the the ID logo and Raven logo intro screens being white when you fire up the game(s) it would sounds like you are missing a particular codec.

I cant say which, but do ensure you have the most upto date WMP Codec pack from Micro$oft.com

I would get this problem in Quake3 if I wasnt connected to the Internet. It had to do with PunkBuster. If I wasnt connected to the internet the only way to get the game to work was rename the PB folder to something else.

I dont think Quake2 uses Punkbuster though.

Have you tried any other OGL games to make sure its not a driver issue?
