Computer freezes while watching DVD

  Axle 22:20 08 Feb 2003

When I try to watch a film on my computer using PCFriendly DVD I find that my computer freezes after about 15-20 mins. I have to re-boot my computer and start again. The only way round this I have found is to jiggle the mouse every ten minutes or so. In practice I usually forget to do this and the picture freezes at a moment of high suspense. Is there a simple solution to this frustrating problem.

Have you got a screensaver running? Turn it off. That may solve the prob.
