Installed Win2K on in-laws PC. Everything is working fine, except Windows Media Player on AVIs.

When you click on an AVI, it is displayed correctly as a thumbnail in the bottom left of the folder (default win2k setting) and you can even play it from there. But if you double click it which loads up the Windows Media Player program itself, it displays the first frame frozen. And the sound track is play play play play play laye laye layed li li li li li li li li li li li <crash> li li li li li li li li <cancel>

Any ideas?

Only have 60 points left.

Try updating it to version 7.1 from windowsupdate.microsoft.com site and see if this fixes the problem.

Did that already.... no joy...

In the mean time, however, I found a solution. I went into the display settings. Clicked the Advanced button. Went into Troubleshooting and checked out Hardware Acceleration. You see.... this is a PC that is starting to get on a tad.... so, I set hardware acceleration to:

"Disable all DirectDraw and Direct3D accelerations, as well as all cursor and advanced drawing accelerations. Use this setting to correct severe problems with DirectX accelerated applications."

Don't ask.... just don't.... it just happened to work. Anything less stringent than that, it falls over again. Why? Ask the cat. She probably has more of a clue than I have.... LOL.

I'm going to ask a friendly neighbourhood moderator to refund my points on this one. Might be worth making this a PAQ though.

Thanks for your interest....
