Just about had enough! DVD

  goll_y 21:09 08 May 2003

Got a problem with my computer (Windows 2000 Professional). When playing WINDVD the system keeps crashing after a period of time (it seems to vary) and then I get a buzzing sound with a still screen which means I need to restart the computer all over.

I've just downloaded new drivers, DirectX 9.0 and have WINDVD 2.2.

Please help. I want to get this sorted and am not sure how. It used to work fine!


PS I'm a newbie so don't make it too difficult to understand!

what processor and graphics card are you using?

where can I find that out?

Click on start settings control panel system information- the processor should be on the first screen with the ram amount then click on device manager tab at the top double click on display adapters and the graphics card should be shown.

NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64 / Model 64 Pro

Have you tried using any other software for playing dvds, to see if the problem if with windvd?

any ideas for another one? Used to have PCFriendly with it but deleted PCFriendly because I was told it might clash. Anywhere I can get one for free? to download to try.

Short answer, If it used to work then it's not graphics card drivers, You have ether loaded something or other that as altered the dvd settings Could be software that you loaded or direct X that you have updated. Something like that, or fitted some new hardware

If you have a restore disc, I think now would be a good time to use it. But first backup important info
