Windows XP Pro : computer freezes when playing video (wmp, asf, etc), using any program: WMP, etc
Posted on 2004-08-09
I just installed Windows XP Professional, added patch 1. When I play a movie (any extension: wmp, asf, etc) and using any program (WMP, etc), after a few seconds into the movie the computer freezes. I have press the reset button to cause the computer to reboot again.
I just got this computer last week. Hardware:
Motherboard: Intel D865PERL
Processor: Intel P4 3.0 GHz 800/1 MB CJA
1 GB memory: 2 x DIMM 512MB DDR 400 Advance modules
Video card: VGA 64MB AGP ATI R700 CJ DDR
Things I've tried:
- Disabled NAV Pro 2004.
- Tried different applications to play the movie.
- Tried playing the movie from different DVD drives and from hard drive.
I use the computer for other tasks like heavy compilation using MS .net 2003 IDE and I don't have any problems. The only problem is while playing the videos.
(I tried to use another topic by I didn't know how).
