I have a couple of different .avi files I want to play… and for the life of me I cannot get them to work.

Have spent about four hours downloading what feels like every codec and media player under the sun.
I have tried: VLC media player; DivX; ffdshow; AVI Movie player; Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player 10, the KLite Codec Pack (Full) and the XP Codec pack. GSpot doesn't recognise the codec. Nothing works.
I'd write the files off as a bad show, but they're from a couple of different sources, so I'm pretty sure it's something at my end, not the files themselves.
Also among the bunch of things I need to look at are some .mkv files. Those are from still another source. And VLC won't play them either.
Which sort of convinces me further the problem is at my end somewhere.
Can anyone suggest anything else at all before I start ripping my hair out in sheer frustration?
